White Lung Unveil New Video and North American Tour

High-energy manic punks, White Lung, are back with their sophomore release, Sorry, this month. Their 2010 debut It’s the Evil earned them critical acclaim from CHARTAttack to Maximum Rock n’ Roll to Terminal Boredom and their follow-up, Sorry, does not disappoint.  Kenneth McCorkell’s signature driving, off-kilter riffage paired with Mish Way’s snarling and aggressive yet melodic vocals and the hard-hitting rhythmic duo of Grady Mackintosh on bass and Anne-Marie Vassilou on drums amp up White Lung’s position from ambassadors to the queens (and king) of Canandian noise rock.    
Bowing to the inevitable need for comparison, according to ViceMagazine, “White Lung combine the feral energy of the Germs with the taut, wiry dynamics of the Wipers and have released a string of singles that keep improving in a bewilderingly exponential fashion.” Written and recorded nearly simultaneously, Sorry manages to be both raw and complex, thanks to White Lung’s focus on cohesive writing.
White Lung will be hitting the road in support of Sorrynext month.  The band will join Wax Idols on a string of West Coast dates, before meeting up with Ceremony for a week of mid west dates, followed by East Coast and Canadian stops.  Look for Sorryto be released May 29th via Deranged Records.  Also of note, the band recently released the video for “Take The Mirror” (See Filter Debut May 15).

Praise For White Lung:
“…a hunk of hot-to-the-touch, hardcore-informed noise that packs 20 years of punk moves into two very ferocious minutes.” – 
Spin
“If Ric Froberg of Hot Snakes, Drive Like Jehu and Obits fame was a woman and was slightly influenced more by hardcore, you’d get White Lung” – Get Bent
“Vancouver post-punk monsters White Lung took the cake with their 2010 epic It’s the Evil, claiming the top spot in our Exclaim! Punk Year in Review and cementing themselves as one of the most exciting bands in Canada today.” – Exclaim!
