Being part of a rock and roll band should be about having loads of fun, and the fellas in White Denim know a thing or two about doing both very well. The groovy rock band from Austin, Texas shared a new track titled “Fine Slime” early Tuesday morning, which is their third single released this year and set to be featured on their upcoming album, Performance, which it arrives later this month on Aug. 24.
The music video for “Fine Slime,” which accompanied the new single’s arrival on Tuesday, carries with it very little sense of normality, but rather an explosion of fun images patched together through some crafty editing like a photoshop session gone weirdly wrong. The song itself has its own quirky moments with pop-up echos and unusual but fun musical tones shared throughout the nearly five-minute track. The song still carries with it that signature White Denim mix of garage rock energy with some smooth vocal work from singer/guitarist James Petralli.
The arrival of “Fine Slime” follows “It Might Get Dark” and “Magazin” as previously released singles shared earlier this year. The band’s upcoming album will be their first full studio release since 2016’s Stiff.
White Denim kicked off the live side of their upcoming album campaign earlier this summer with a show in Atlanta back on June 19. Their next live shows are scheduled for over in the U.K. and The Netherlands at the end of August, but they’re set to return Stateside for the start of their second North American leg in St. Louis on Sept. 11. They’ll continue performing across the U.S. and Canada throughout the fall months before wrapping up on Oct. 16 in Asheville, North Carolina. Tickets for select shows on the tour are on sale now and can be purchased by clicking here.
