William Elliott Whitmore's New Album and Tour Is On the Way
Wed, 25 Feb 2015 11:24:35
William Elliott Whitmore will release Radium Death on March 31.
Raised on a family farm in Iowa and inspired by the insurgent sounds of The Jesus Lizard, Bad Brains and Minutemen, Whitmore sketched out the new songs between feeding animals and tending crops.
Each week, he traveled two hours to Flat Black Studios in Iowa City, built and operated by his cousin and producer, Luke Tweedy. Together, where they would rehearse, record and build songs, sometimes welcoming other musicians to play live on tracks.
Radium Death Track Listing:
Healing to Do
Trouble in Your Heart

Go On Home
Don't Strike Me Down

He is also touring, mostly with Esme Patterson.
