This bunch of Lawrence seasoned salts set out on a maiden musical voyage with their debut "WWI," available free at tonight's release show. The intrepid crew - John Anderson (Boys Life), Dustin Kinsey (The New Amsterdams), Matt Suggs (Butterglory), Zach Holland and Rob Pope (The Get Up Kids) - sets the course with its July 24 release on Merge Records. White Whale references their sound as "Roxy Sabbath," (Roxy Music + Black Sabbath), which affords only a hint of the aural storm that propels White Whale to strange sonic worlds and new musical adventures.
