Rock’n’roll duo White Mystery debut the first video from Blood & Venom "Birthday" on MTV!

Whereas the White Stripes looked to the blues tradition for inspiration, White Mystery only go back as far back as the Sonics, though they’re also clearly influenced by bands from later decades as well (the MC5 stick are a big one). Alex White’s Kathleen Hannah-esque vocals put them in a space never even ten-foot-poled by the Stripes, and Francis Scott Key White’s drumming is clean and precise compared to Meg White’s primal thumping.

After a summer spent earning their reputation as one of the Top 20 Summer Street Fest Bands and playing shows across the nation, White Mystery start plotting their fall, playing the Hideout Blockparty and announcing dates in the States and Canada!

Check out this live video of their set, Francis Scott Key White’s total drum kit annihilation and a gorgeous video of "Blood & Venom" filmed at the White Haus.
