If you’re a fan of stripped down garage rock, loud drums, and/or redheads, meet your perfect match. White Mystery is the two-piece brother/sister duo of Alex and Francis White. Alex is best known as the guitar rockin’ front women of MIss Alex White and the Red Orchestra (In The Red), but with her latest venture with brother Francis, she strips it down to a guitar and heavy-handed drum garage rock sound.

Blood & Venom is the follow up to their self-titled, self-released debut LP – that earned praise from NPR’s Sound Opinions, won them a tour invite from garage rock legends The Gories and was named by the Chicago Tribune as a Top Ten of 2010. Their sophomore release was celebrated with two hometown shows, a feature on NPR and an art opening of one-of-a-kind band merch.

In just the past two weeks, rock’n’roll duo White Mystery played the prestigious Pritzker Pavillion in Chicago’s Millennium Park and headlined the the Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival living up to their reputation as one of the Top 20 Summer Street Fest Bands by ending their set awash in fuzzy guitar feedback and total drum kit annihilation.

Check out this live video of their set for a taste of what you’ll experience as White Mystery prepare to head out on their tour of the nation shredding tracks from their sophomore LP Blood & Venom!


Take a gander at a gorgeous video of “Blood & Venom” filmed at the White Haus and prepare for more amazing videos on their way from White Mystery – hailed as the top band in Illinois by the Boston Phoenix’s “Best New Bands in America” and profiled by MTV Hive as a “High Five Sibling Act.”
