White Denim Signs to Downtown Records

Downtown: New US Label for White Denim

I have to give a lot of respect to White Denim for trying a truly unique and adventurous way of self-releasing all their previous work here in the States. While it didn't necessarily work out in the end, it was a valiant effort to fight the machine that is the music industry standard. As a comparison to the success the band has experienced overseas with the help of label Full Time Hobby, it's no surprise that White Denim has finally signed to an independent label here in the States. And I'm sure the band couldn't be happier with the selection of Downtown Records, which also happens to be home to the Cold War Kids, Eagles of Death Metal, Mos Def, Major Lazer, Santigold, Art Brut, and many more.

Up next on the band's to-do list is to formally release the amazingly awesome Fits to the US, which will officially hit shelves on October 20, 2009.

Can't wait until October?
