Canadian punk band White Lung continue their ascent, with critical acclaim for their recent fourth album Paradise still rolling in, and a hefty US tour kicking off early next month in Los Angeles.
Paradise, released in May this year via Domino,has appeared on recent ‘Best Albums of 2016 So Far’ lists from Consequence of Sound, Stereogum, Spin, and Bandcamp. Yesterday, White Lung were announced as a 2016 Polaris Music Prize nominee, alongside fellow Canadians Drake, Justin Bieber, Carly Rae Jepsen, Grimes, and The Weeknd.
White Lung’s Mish Barber-Way recently performed a cover of Guns N’ Roses ‘Used To Love Her’ during the band’s SiriusXMU session. Listen to the cover HERE. The entire session premiered this past Wednesday on Sirius XM’s SiriusXMU, and will replay again on Sunday at 12pm ET.
As part of Google Play and Milk Studios’ ongoing emerging artist series, White Lung recently took over Milk’s New York JamRoom space for a special, sweat-filled performance on top of their album release. The show was captured for a 5-track live EP, out today exclusively on Google Play. Check it out now, along with a video from the event. Other artists featured in the series include Empress Of, D.R.A.M, and more.
