The Bright White have performed a release show for their debut EP, Until Then, at Chicago's legendary Double Door and a New York City debut at Mercury Lounge. Tracks from the EP recently received airplay on Chicago's Q101 and WXRT.
"Listening to their single "Red Summer Rose," it's easy to imagine them going places far and wide beyond the Windy City to lands inhabited by The Killers and Kings of Leon." (Rock Turtleneck)
Comprised of four working class guys who proudly wear their hearts on their sleeves, Chicago's The Bright White debuted in early 2011. Frontman Matthew Kayser and guitarist Joe O'Leary dreamt up the concept of an infectiously loud and spirited rock n' roll band months before they were fortunate enough to have drummer Steve Zelenko and bassist Peter Krutiak respond to a Craigslist ad for a rhythm section. Inspired songwriting sessions and a slew of local and regional bookings immediately followed.
Fueled by Kayser's impassioned vocals and their own brand of careening, yet smart, rock n' roll, The Bright White plan on releasing another EP and their first full-length in 2012. They look forward to connecting with audiences who have been waiting for sing-along choruses, fist-in-the-air guitar solos and the swagger of a band who knows its best days are ahead.
"Reminiscent of early Foo Fighters, Oasis or Superdrag, one couldn't help but look at the leather jacket clad rockers and be taken back to a time in their life where they threw up a fist and banged their underage heads as they sang along on a school night at their favorite dingy, smoke-filled venue."
