White Hills News 2010
Our new album, simply titled WHITE HILLS, will be released by Thrill Jockey on February 23, 2010. There will be a CD version and an LP version. Both have exclusive tracks and a different art work.
You can view the information and artwork for both releases here...

There is a video for the track DEAD off of the upcoming album. You can view it here....
Later in 2010 the recent collaboration with Manchester, UK based band GNOD will see the light of day as a 2xLP release by Rocket Recordings. The LP is titled GNOD Drop Out with WHITE HILLS II. Some of you may have purchased the CD-r release of Drop Out during our Euro Tour this past spring. DO II will feature remixed and re-sequenced tracks from DO I plus a few more tracks that did not make it on to the first version.
Currently I am working on a split release with Der Blutharsch
(http://www.myspace.com/derblutharsch) that will see the light of day as a 7" single. We hope to have this ready for release by Spring of 2010 at the latest. WHITE HILLS' contribution to this release is a number called "Todays I Want To Catch Clouds". It's a haunting number...a cry to the universe. Other releases are in the works but are too early to talk about now.
One release I can speak of is the 3rd pressing of "A Little Bliss Forever". This pressing is limited to 25 copies and will come in a gatefold LP jacket. Each cover will be different, hand done by myself. These copies will be sold via eBay...one by one over the next year. Announcements will be made when they go up for sale.
We will also be back in Europe this coming February with our label mates PONTIAK. The tour will take place from the middle of February through the middle of March. Following the Euro Tour, in spring we will be doing dates around the U.S. All dates will be posted on our myspace page soon.
Lastly in Goldmine Magazine's latest issue there is an article on Hawkwind. They asked me to contribute to it with my top 5 Hawkwind albums list... you can read the article here...

That's all for now... thanks for your continued support and we look forward to seeing and hearing from you all in 2010!
