WATCH: White Reaper Can’t Go Wrong with “Might Be Right”

Along with news of their signing to Elektra, the power pop group reveal their first single in two years.

There’s been little noise from Louisville rockers White Reaper since they released one of the world’s best records of 2017 (so far), but the power pop quintet has announced today that they’ll be returning with the support of Elektra Records to release their first new single in two years. “Might Be Right” falls directly in line with the ambitious, arena-bound power pop with more than a hint of glam of their previous efforts, doing plenty to further the cause Cheap Trick wanted us to want forty years ago.

“I remember seeing the big Elektra ‘E’ on the back of so many of my favorite Cars, Doors, Queen, and Metallica records—I still can’t believe it,” frontman Tony Esposito comments on the band’s reveal. While there’s no word of a third LP in the works, the signing is certainly cause to keep your ears open.
