White Hills Announce Industrially Charged New LP “Stop Mute Defeat”

White Hills

White Hills have announced the release of their brand new album, Stop Mute Defeat, for May 19th via Thrill Jockey. On Stop Mute Defeat, White Hills members Dave W. and Ego Sensation have “brazenly produced an industrially-charged record that pulsates unlike anything they’ve released before.”

Mixed by Martin Bisi (Sonic Youth, Brian Eno, Afrika Bambaataa), the album was influenced by dance hall, drug den, and bar, the Mudd Club – New York’s legendary haunt in the late 1970’s. Following similar techniques to those propagated by William S. Burroughs (a regular at Mudd Club), Stop Mute Defeat sees White Hills “break free from the guitar-driven structure of their earlier releases, and create sounds that call to mind Xtrmntr-era Primal Scream or Cabaret Voltaire. Despite the band’s newfound approach, their criticisms of rampant consumerism and the proliferation of post-truth mythology are at their most scathing.”

Following their album release show at New York City’s Union Pool on May 11th, White Hills will embark on an extensive European tour, which will include sets at AnfiRock Festival and Raw Power Festival.
