About The White Flags

=BIO= THE WHITE FLAGS are determined to make quick work of becoming the south’s new darlings of alternative rock…glossy & crafty, purposeful & raw. Just like hometown Houston. These guys are ambitious and white knuckle all the way. “The music is catchy enough that fans of The Killers flock to it and timeless enough that fans of U2 are intoxicated by it.” While the band is carving out new frontier in the landscape of alt rock, the emotive and raw vocals are drawing comparison to Kings Of Leon and the driving guitar lines and infectious melodies are being dubbed U2-esque. "THE WHITE FLAGS unapologetically command the stage every time with arena-sized grandeur and hometown southern charm." ________________________________________________ The band was formed in late 2011 after Seth realized he'd been writing songs for a band concept and not a solo project (like he originally thought). He coined it “THE WHITE FLAGS”, paying homage to a line from CS Lewis’ novel The Great Divorce. Adding to the band's cutting edge sound is Grammy-winning and multi-platinum Producer Happy Perez. Hap’s shortlist of A-talent he’s worked with (and/or is currently working with) includes artists such as Mariah Carey, Ryan Tedder, Frank Ocean, BlackBear, Ludacris, Miguel, Rhianna and B.O.B. Hap’s contribution to THE WHITE FLAGS' timeless style is proving to open doors to new types of fans that are willing to genre-hop. Early on, the band had live opportunities bubbling up so fast they didn’t even have enough original material to finish a set with. They drew from some of their favorite influences to get through the nights, bands like Miike Snow and Phantogram. Says Justin (lead guitarist), “Having to pull covers from bands we identified with really helped shape a lot of the sound of this first album. The reaction from the crowds let us know those songs looked really good on us and thank God, it’s some of our favorite stuff to play.” It’s the happy accidents that sometimes shape a great project. Thankfully, the boys now have a full show’s worth of songs (though they still pop in a tasteful cover now and again for fun). “Cool thing is we get the same big rowdy applause after our songs as we do when we finish our Phantogram cover of ‘When I’m Small.’ That’s nice because people will let you know what they love and what they hate. Man, we’re doing something right. It’s exciting,” Ricardo. t h e w h i t e f l a g s : m e s s e n g e r http://thewhiteflags.com iTunes :: HOUSE ON FIRE at http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/house-on-fire/id543710538
