“It has taken five records to make one that sounds the way we do onstage,” says White Denim frontman James Petralli, explaining the band’s new full-length “Corsicana Lemonade.”

Set for release October 2013 via Downtown Records, “Corsicana Lemonade” puts White Denim’s freewheeling stage ethos to wax and cements their position as a quintessential, unique American rock band. Featuring production on two songs and a full mix from iconic songwriter Jeff Tweedy, it’s a revelation, merging the group’s manic live virtuosity into a rollicking ten-song mission statement.

The Austin, TX four-piece is no stranger to mixing crunchy punk energy, scorched psychedelia, Southern rock and knotty funk, but “Corsicana Lemonade,” the group’s fifth studio album, naturally covers so many bases that it plays like the greatest lost mixtape you could find on your dashboard during a hot summer afternoon.

Since its formation in 2005 and first string of EPs in 2007, White Denim has steadily expanded its sound. From the rootsy classicism of “Last Day Of Summer” (2010) and noisy sun-soaked sizzle of “Fits” (2009) to the soft-edged riffage of “D” (2011), the group’s commitment to fiery live performance, textured exploration and blissful interludes has never wavered. It peaks on “Corsicana Lemonade.”

Album sessions started in Chicago at fabled Wilco compound The Loft with Jeff Tweedy (and frequent production partner Tom Schick) manning the boards and providing motivation. The record was almost entirely recorded live with full-band takes, ensuring a lived-in live feel.

“Before, we had kind of leaned on the ability to give the impression of a full live band on our recordings. That Protools Rock is way more common than people know,” says Petralli. “On ‘Corsicana Lemonade,’ it was actually the band playing together and doing takes as a whole. Whatever sounded best was what we stuck with.”
