Alternative Rockers WHITEHALL Ruminate On The End of A Doomed Relationship On New Single “Shadow of Your Wall”

Brooklyn, NY (by way of Charleston, SC) indie rockers Whitehall
have released a new standalone single titled “Shadow of Your Wall,” in advance of their fall headline tour, which kicks off on September 14th in Columbus, OH. Tickets for the shows are available HERE.

The band says, “”Shadow of Your Wall” has persisted in the Whitehall back catalog since the early, dorm room days of the band. Though it has seen many forms in terms of instrumentation through that time, the lyrics and melody have remained the same, keeping the original heart of the song intact. It details some extreme thoughts that go on in the breakdown of a relationship, asking a lot of questions but left assuming the answers. This being the most upbeat version of the song to date hopefully makes for a fun listen when stewing over the serious stuff.”

On their upcoming tour, Whitehall will also be performing tracks off their recent Enci Records label debut, ‘Maizy,’ which was produced by Kevin Ratterman (My Morning Jacket, White Reaper).

Whitehall’s ability to combine danceable beats with introspective themes is a testament to their talent and creativity. They have a way of inspiring both the body and the mind, leaving listeners feeling energized and empowered.

Having toured as direct support for Goo Goo Dolls in 2022, the band has also played shows with Arlie and The Sewing Club.

About Whitehall:

Whitehall is an indie rock four-piece band from Charleston, SC. Paddy McKiernan (vocals, guitar), Brennan Clark (bass), Davis Rowe (drums), and Avery Greeson (guitar) met while attending the College of Charleston and got their start writing songs in a dorm room. After four years spent in the South Carolina DIY scene playing house shows throughout the state, the band recorded their debut album, ‘Ocean Fiction,’ and embarked on their first tour on the East Coast with a live show that is at once frenetic and introspective. In the years that followed, Whitehall recorded and released their sophomore effort ‘Swordfish Catcher’ and received praise and playlist placement from national publications like NPR, Alternative Press, and American Songwriter. This album saw their sound shift from bouncy, melody-laden indie, to something grittier, with distorted guitars and imaginative lyricism that more closely resembles acts like Pavement and Car Seat Headrest.

What others have said about Whitehall:

““Rose” opens with a reverberated guitar and vocals, joined shortly by the rest of the band and offering us a bouncing rhythm that is sure to repel the thoughts of one’s impending seasonal depression. It is definitely a song designed for driving with the windows down, so be sure to squeeze it in before winter rips out our souls.”- Up To Hear

“Half garage-rock noise, half polished guitar pop…massive riffs and muscular rhythms…raw-but-melodic gems, gleaming with shimmering hooks and big, full-throated choruses.”- Charleston City Paper

“There are moments on this album where you’ll find yourself nodding in agreement, or cringing in disgust at yourself because of a certain uncomfortable memory that the lyrics bring to mind. These moments are often accompanied by loud, beefy guitar tones and well-timed drum hits that exist to help ease the pain.- Extra Chill

“The 4-piece write on ideas of aging, personal growth and their thoughts and feelings as the group enters their mid-20’s. It’s a holistic idea of what this band is all about, combined with all the sonic elements that craft their earnest and hearty songs.”- Play Too Much
