After knocking out this year’s SXSW as one of the most talked about and must see acts, Vancouver’s furiously melodic punk band, White Lung, will perform at Pitchfork and NXNE Festivals this summer.  White Lung are currently out on an extensive spring tour which includes dates with METZ, Iceage, Pissed Jeans and Merchandise.  Sorry (Deranged Records), their second LP, was released last year and pushed the band to a wider audience receiving critical acclaim from SPIN, Pitchfork, Bitch and gained Rolling Stone’s “Top 10 Albums Of The Year” for 2012.

White Lung are a four-piece indie rock group from Vancouver, B.C. Influenced by riot grrrl, post-punk, and hardcore punk, singer Mish Way, drummer Anne Marie Vassiliou, bassist Grady MacIntosh, and guitarist Kenneth William (guitar) formed the band in 2006, and the Local Garbage 7″ was released in 2007. The record went mostly unnoticed until the girls (and guy) were interviewed by Maximum Rocknroll for a cover story. A contract followed with Canadian hardcore label Deranged Records, and in true indie/punk fashion, they released more 7″ records (Magazines and Atlanta) before issuing their first full-length album, It’s the Evil. In May of 2012, they released their follow-up LP, Sorry, before leaving on a tour with Ceremony and Wax Idols.
