Another free download, this time it's The Whigs

Is it wrong for me to like this band just because their name is oh-too-similar to the Afghan Whigs?

This band, The Whigs, as we know are releasing their new album, In The Dark on ATO on March 16. We also know about the tour with Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.

Now comes the news that The Whigs are set to play "Kill Me Carolyne" on David Letterman's show on April 1. If you want to hear the song first, the band is welcoming you to download it for free from their website. And on April 27, they continue their TV tour with a slot on the Jimmy Fallon show.
