Whitemare is an English rock band from Brighton, formed in 2008. The group's line-up features ex-Architects vocalist Matt Johnson,[2][3] ex-Johnny Truant guitarist Al Kilcullen [4] and ex-Centurion drummer Eugene Economou. In 2009, Whitemare recorded a five track EP which was released through Small Town Records, with the band's style being described as a cross between hardcore punk, stoner rock and Southern rock.[5] Whitemare then released their first full-length album, Snider, worldwide on 11 November 2011.

History[edit]

Early line-up[edit]

At its inception, the band's lineup included Architects guitarist Tim Hillier-Brook on Bass and Adam 'Burns' Hall on second guitar. However, after a short amount of time Tim Hillier-Brook departed Whitemare to focus on the increasing success of Architects, and the band also decided the music would be better suited to a single guitarist rather than two. Subsequent bassists have included Tristen Macfie, Robin Urbino, and the current bassist Lewis Porter as of November 2010.

Snider (2011)[edit]

Whitemare released their debut full-length album, Snider, on 11 November 2011. It was recorded over the space of two days with Gez Walton (ex-Ghost Of A Thousand) mixing and producing. The album received an almost unanimously positive reaction from the UK rock-media, being hailed as a promising debut.[6][7]
