About Whitman

Filled with drunkenness, long nights and debauchery; Whitman’s Weekends is precisely reminiscent of what its title suggests, a whole lot of fun. Good times are not a new concept for the veteran Austin rock band. Since their formation, Whitman has been doing everything their own way and having a hell of a good time in the process. Since 2003, two friends, Ram Vela (vocals/guitar) and Kyle Johnson (keys/guitar), have developed a knack for crafting heart-on-the-sleeve rock songs that tell vivid stories of their experiences; growing up in small Texas towns, living in Austin, and traveling the country. Eventually Vela and Johnson teamed up with Eric Jenne (drums) and Micajah Nye (bass) to create a lineup that embodies the bands’ songwriting values of honesty, dedication and hope. Since their inception, the band has self-booked multiple tours and had the privilege of opening for many great bands (including Titus Andronicus, The Walkmen, GIVERS, Third Eye Blind and Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears) with their always exciting and raucous live shows. The 11-track record features topics ranging from weekend flings ("NW Thurman,"" Manchester by the Sea"), the struggles of touring ("Dead Dog Days,""Light it Up") and the joys of drinking and carousing with friends, both close and lost ("Barstools,""Day Drink Pt. 1 & 2"). Just in case there was any question, Whitman proves they’ve done their rock n’ roll due diligence with influences ranging from The Replacements, Elvis Costello & the Attractions, Wilco and The Hold Steady. All the while, the album never loses touch with the band’s core aesthetic and keeps everything up-beat and energetic; while keeping the listener constantly engaged through singing along, keeping a cold beer in their hand and getting the odd desire to give out sweaty high-fives. Weekends was recorded by Whitman, produced and mixed by David Dreesen, and Mastered by Bob Weston (The Pixies, Nirvana, Sebadoh)and will be released on Sonora Records on April 17, 2012.
