THIS WHITE LIGHT, the new band featuring guitarist Greg Anderson (Sunn O))), Goatsnake, Engine Kid), drummer Jade Devitt (Engine Kid, Gale Forces), bassist Bryan Herweg (Pelican), and vocalist Jen Wood (solo artist and formerly of Tattle Tale and collaborator with The Postal Service) shares a new track, “The House,” as they announce their first live dates.
Exploring the contrast of darkness and light, THIS WHITE LIGHT’s music is delicate when called for, powerful when necessary.
Listen to “The House” and revisit the early demo track “Winter Flowers” RIGHT HERE.

In March 2017, Greg Anderson and Jade Devitt began to make music with one another again, having previously played together in the nineties with Engine Kid. Starting with the formula of extreme dynamics that they had perfected in the years previous as Engine Kid, the pair have added their more-than-twenty-years of musical experience and taken the music in a new and different direction. Chance encounters and serendipitous moments fortified the final line up of THIS WHITE LIGHT with the addition of Bryan Herweg and Jen Wood. The four-piece recorded with Josh Homme at his Pink Duck Studios in April for their next release, with more info to follow soon.
