White Reaper have shared a new video for Pink Slip

White Reaper have shared “Pink Slip,” the third new single to be released off their forthcoming album Asking for a Ride, which will arrive January 27th on Elektra Entertainment. Available today on all streaming platforms, “Pink Slip” is joined by a visualizer featuring live footage and behind the scenes clips shot over the past year with additional VFX by Harry Steel. “Pink Slip” follows “Fog Machine” and its Max Moore directed music video and Asking for a Ride’s lead single “Pages”

Recorded and largely self-produced in Nashville with the help of close friend and engineer Jeremy Ferguson, Asking for a Ride finds the Louisville band taking a more direct and in-your-face approach, prioritizing the collection’s raw energy and its ability to translate live through ripping and nervy compositions.

The band is Comprised of Tony Esposito (guitar / vocals), Ryan Hater (keyboards), Sam Wilkerson (bass), Nick Wilkerson (drums), and Hunter Thompson (guitar), Asking for a Ride follows White Reaper’s 2019 album You Deserve Love, which marked a new career peak for the Louisville band.

“We ask ourselves: ‘Does it sound good when we play it in the room together?’ And if it does, those are the songs we want to pursue,” Esposito noted. Guitarist Hunter Thompson concurred: “We started to recognize how we operate best as a band.”

Up next, White Reaper will hit the road for their 2023 North American “Asking for a Ride” headline tour. The upcoming trek will feature special guests Narrow Head, Militarie Gun, Taipei Houston, and Mamalarky on select dates, and will kick off February 7th [tour itinerary below]. The forthcoming dates will see White Reaper’s long awaited return to touring after having spent years living on the road, headlining and supporting some of their idols – Pearl Jam, Weezer, and The Killers – while making festival appearances at Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits and more.
