WHITE LUNG "Two of You (Euro Press)" 7"
Two new songs! from Canada's WHITE LUNG! Hailing from Vancouver, B.C., high-energy punks White Lung pull references from every era of punk remaining unforgiving yet melodic. Their debut LP It's the Evil (Deranged) was named Punk Album Of The Year by Exclaim! and their sophomore LP Sorry (Deranged) has managed to top the last.Spawned from East Vancouver's dirty DIY Emergency Room scene, White Lung formed in 2006 with guitarist Kenneth joining in 2009. From the beginning they were road warriors, touring regularly, even contemplating selling their underwear just to get on the road (they eventually opted for the more practical route of saving up funds.) White Lung broke out of their incestuous local scene and brought their music across Canada and the US. They continue to tour fanatically, their live shows have been called, "effortlessly engaging and enigmatic, harnessing a controlled violence that managed to be passionate without going the least bit over-the-top" by Exclaim! Magazine. The band's disparate influences have resulted in a wealth of comparisons. Stylistically White Lung's music has been called everything from noise rock to skate punk to post-riot grrl. According to Way, "When you like playing music you just want to learn, and that comes with playing as much as you can. White Lung is a really odd combination of four people who have pretty different influences."
