How could a group named Texas Chainsaw Mass Choir fail? Apparently, it did. But the band had future White Rabbits members Greg Roberts, Alex Even and Adam Russell.
Roberts is White Rabbits' linchpin. He knew Stephen Patterson from college. The two singers added two former Texas Chainsaw Mass Choir vets (Even and Russell) to form the group in Columbia, MO. Relocating to Brooklyn, White Rabbits added Jamie Levinson who was once Roberts' neighbor and bandmate (in The Hubcaps).
White Rabbits debut, "Fort Nightly," dropped in '07. That led to a national tour opening for the Kaiser Chiefs and an appearance on Late Night With David Letterman. A performance at '08's South By Southwest led New Musical Express (NME) to name White Rabbits one of the top three live bands of the year.
White Rabbits meet Britt Daniel, Spoon's singer/guitarist, while on tour in Minneapolis. They asked him to produce their next album, "It's Frightening," which he did.
The group hit the '10 festival circuit playing Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, Austin City Limits Music Festival and the Voodoo Music Experience in New Orleans. They also opened for Muse at London's Wembley Stadium.
White Rabbits third album, "Milk Famous," had Spoon producer Mike McCarthy at the controls.
