Louisville, Kentucky’s White Reaper have released their Elektra Records debut album, You Deserve Love.  Available today on all streaming platforms, You Deserve Love features early album singles “1F,” “Real Long Time” and “Might Be Right,” the latter of which is currently Top 15 at Alternative radio, Top 10 at Triple AAA radio and growing.

Recorded with producer Jay Joyce in Nashville, Tennessee, You Deserve Love follows White Reaper’s celebrated 2017 album, The World’s Best American Band.  “We didn’t say shit when we went into the studio with Jay,” says vocalist / guitarist Tony Esposito. “We didn’t tell him, ‘It needs to sound like 1977’ or anything like that. We thought of our songs as our songs and about trying to make them sound good -- less about making them sound like other things in the past, more of letting them stand on their own and making each song sound different.” 

You Deserve Love is a collection of smart, sharply-written songs of doubt, dislocation, and elusive and often complicated love.  It’s an album that has lifted the band from its early, ragged, single-mindedly punk phase, pushing them further to the ideal, and closer to the sound they collectively have been hearing in their heads.  It’s honest and revelatory with songs like “Saturday,” with its big opening giving way to a languid dub beat and lazy guitars while ruminating about how drinking in clubs has lost its luster. “Headwind” is a tellingly accurate depiction of what White Reaper went through to get to this point in its career, and its searingly honest companion song, “Hard Luck,” is more revealing about what the view from the bottom can look like.

“Tony Esposito’s vocals still spike and crackle like a live wire over big, brash guitars,” stated PASTE Magazine with Consequence of Sound declaring, “It’s still loud, it’s still a little snotty, and it’s still White Reaper.” GQ applauded “Might Be Right” affirming, “This new single from Kentucky boys White Reaper is the perfect companion for all your nice weather fun,” while UPROXX commended “Real Long Time” and It’s Lance Bangs directed video attesting, “White Reaper have made one of the year’s catchiest rock songs.”  FLOOD Magazine avowed, “’Might Be Right’ falls directly in line with the ambitious, arena-bound power pop with more than a hint of glam of their previous efforts, doing plenty to further the cause Cheap Trick wanted us to want forty years ago.” AV Club put it simply: “’Real Long Time,’ especially, is bliss,” with Stereogum attesting, “These tracks illustrate a more keyed-up version of White Reaper.”

White Reaper are currently on a North American headline tour which continues tomorrow night (10/19) with a sold-out record release show at Los Angeles’ Teragram Ballroom.  The tour features support from The Dirty Nil, The Nude Party and Dehd in respective markets, plus special guests Criminal Hygiene, The Paranoyds, Wombo, Being Dead and Charles Irwin joining on select dates [see itinerary / admat below]. Following their headline tour, White Reaper will kick off a string of Alternative Radio holiday shows starting in November.

Nurturing arena-sized ambitions, Louisville's White Reaper remind us that "fun as hell" is a primary purpose of music.  Equal parts glam and grit, You Deserve Love finds the band expanding on the songcraft laid down on 2017’s critically acclaimed The World’s Best American Band, which landed on Noisey’s “100 Best Albums of 2017” and Pitchfork’s “20 Best Rock Albums of 2017,” earning an 8.0 album score.  Comprised of Tony Esposito (guitar / vocals), Ryan Hater (keyboards), Sam Wilkerson (bass), Nick Wilkerson (drums), and Hunter Thompson (guitar), White Reaper have spent the last two years living on the road, headlining and supporting some of their idols - Spoon, Weezer, and The Killers – while making festival appearances at Ohana, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits and more.
