Louisville band White Reaper have announced a new album, Asking For A Ride, out January 27 via Elektra (pre-order). With the album announcement comes lead single "Pages," an acid-washed, guitar-driven jam with a music video directed by Lance Bangs. Vocalist and guitarist Tony Esposito says, “It seems like ‘Pages' could’ve easily existed on one of our earlier records, it’s just a few chords and a simple melody; but because of that, I’d say that it’s pretty unique to the rest of our new album. We can’t wait to show everyone what we’ve been working on.” Lance Bangs adds:
White Reaper are a joy to make things with, 5 guys that are good company in recording studios, house parties, live shows, and anywhere else you can spend time among them. We had a great experience shooting saturated color motion picture film on handheld cameras for the "Real Long Time" video for their previous album, and I wanted to get everyone together for an outdoor daylight look in one of my favorite architectural public spaces, the Keller Fountain in Portland, Oregon. It was designed in the late 60s and opened to the public in 1970. It’s an enduring free space where people can spend time. We filmed on a bright, warm afternoon and conjured up a video that feels like the song: dynamic, catchy, genuine.
