In March 2005, two bands, Parque Touch (Josh Block, James Petralli, Lucas Anderson) and Peach Train (Steve Terebecki),played a show together at Beerland in Austin, Texas. After the show Steve was asked to play bass for Parque Touch and theband became four, playing under the pseudonyms Byshop Massive (Lucas), Bop English (James), Nicholas Mallard (Josh), andTerry Beckins (Steve); however, in February 2006, Lucas moved to Russia and the resulting power trio changed its name toWhite Denim. The new line-up began playing the local Austin circuit while recording punk-infused, psychedelic blues-rock inBlock's 1940s Spartan trailer. In 2007, the band self-released its first EP entitled Let's Talk About It on 7" only, but later these tracks became available oniTunes. While on tour in 2007, the band recorded a nine-song "tour EP" entitled Workout Holiday, which was only sold atshows. Workout Holiday caught the ear of new netlabel RCRD LBL, and the band signed on to re-record three of the songs.These songs were exclusively released as the RCRD LBL EP, one MP3 track at a time over the course of the first few monthsof 2008. Since these releases, the band has toured extensively, playing shows including SXSW and CMJ Music Marathon, and alsoreceived the award of "Best New Band" at the 2008 Austin Music Awards. In order to reach European listeners, the bandsigned to UK record label Full Time Hobby (home to The Hold Steady and Viva Voce) for an overseas release. The first releaseon Full Time Hobby was the single "Let's Talk About It" b/w "Darksided Computer Mouth". On June 23, 2008, the band releasedits debut album, the Workout Holiday LP, which consists of re-recorded songs from the band's first two self-released EPsalong with some new tracks. The band later released two more singles in Europe from Workout Holiday: "All You Really HaveTo Do" b/w "DCWYW" and "Shake Shake Shake" b/w "All Truckers Roll". Back in the U.S., White Denim released their debut U.S. full-length LP, entitled Exposion in late 2008. Originally sold duringtheir Spring 2008 tour as a CD-R with the title 11 Songs, the album was made available in digital format from their officialwebsite on October 19, 2008.

Many ofthese tunes have been bouncing around since the formation of the band back in 06. We were super pumped to utilize a fewfresh and casual musical approaches on this record.".
