White Rabbits join Radiohead's label, schedule many dates

March 11, 2008  |  8:56am

Things seem to be going pretty well for White Rabbits these days. Tonight, they play a benefit for the American Museum of Natural History in New York City (tickets are still available here), the theme of which is "Enchanted Forest" (awesome!). They then hit the road, starting with a few SXSW dates, followed by a U.S. stint with Spoon and The Walkmen, followed by some headlining European gigs (see below).

Oh yeah, and they signed to TBD Records, which means they're labelmates with Radiohead and Underworld. That's none too shabby company for the still-young band. According to a recent statement, White Rabbits hope to have a new album out in early 2009.
