At A Loss Recordings has confirmed the release date for the limited LP edition of Whitehorses's latest mammoth full-length, "Progression." Following an initial CD release via Sweat Lung early last year as the band stormed the U.S. alongside The Body, At A Loss officially released the album via digital download in July.

Once again licensed from Sweat Lung, this pressing will be limited to 500 copies on black or black & blue swirled vinyl, and will include a digital download coupon to access high-quality MP3s as well. Preorders for the platter are being taken here.

Following the band's U.S. tour last year, Whitehorse will return next Summer on a full tour of the country. More info will be announced as the time draws near. In the meantime, the band continue to book shows throughout Australia and has the following upcoming shows:
