Francis Scott Key White and Miss Alex White are the brother-sister duo that is White Mystery, a Chicago rock'n'roll band founded on April 20, 2008. Inspired by a candy flavor of the same name, White Mystery has since visited the Airheads candy factory and was photographed by PORK magazine in a bathtub full of the sweets. MTV features the band as a "Top 5 Sibling Act," "Best Video Premiere," and places White Mystery songs prominently in their television programming.
Since her early teen years, Miss Alex White played in garage bands Miss Alex White & the Red Orchestra and Hot Machines, bootstrapped DIY record label Missile X Records, and recorded with In the Red Records. Guitar World named her a "Top 10 Female Guitarist to Look Out For" for the supercharged riffs that blast out of her Rickenbacker, through a Big Muff, and out of the amplifier that Orange Amps sponsors her with. She shares a birthday with Willie Nelson, and Wayne Kramer from the MC5.
Francis Scott Key White has the most patriotic name in rock'n'roll music, shares a birthday with Keith Moon from the Who, and evokes the energy of British heavy hitters John Bonham from Led Zeppelin and Bill Ward from Black Sabbath. As a kid, Francis dreamed of joining his older sister on her tours around the world, and now with White Mystery has played almost every state in the USA, Canada, and embarks on a European Tour in 2013.
White Mystery debuts new music on its band anniversary every year, with a 4/20 celebration of vinyl, cds, and digital downloads. Together, the siblings self-released their first "White Mystery" full-length album in 2010 and sophomore record "Blood & Venom" in 2011 to the critical acclaim of Pitchfork, VICE, The Chicago Tribune, LA Weekly, The Austin Chronicle, and Village Voice. Cassette and vinyl seven-inch releases on Burger Records, HoZac, and Perpetrator have widened the bands' fan base considerably.
White Mystery "Telepathic" is the band's third full-length, recorded in Oakland with Greg Ashley, to be released in on April 20, 2013 at Brick & Mortar in San Francisco.
