The Whigs' ATO Records debut will be released January 22, 2008. Along with “Spin” Magazine, “Entertainment Weekly,” “The Washington Post,” “Stereogum,” and many others, Rolling Stone says "[The Whigs] evoke the neo-roots-rock vibe of My Morning Jacket, the cool minimalism of The Strokes and the perfectly constructed pop of the early Sixties." “Harp” magazine raves, “The Athens trio's Southern-fried indie rock conjures Pavement and The Replacements in all the right ways. The Whigs recall the halcyon days of alt-country, when bands brought a punk roar to timeless, meat-and-potatoes songwriting.” “Relix” Magazine goes on to say “"As debuts go, it doesn't get much better: Each song unfurls with hook after hook of sweet melodious college radio pop/rock … It's the same ingenuity in their music that guarantees that The Whigs will be the next Athens band to leave a huge musical footprint."
