The Whigs will return on April 22 with their fifth album, the upcoming Modern Creation. Produced by Jim Scott (whose CV includes work with Wilco, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Weezer), the LP was recorded at PLYRZ Studios in Valencia, California and completed over the course of just two weeks, from start to finish.
