Whips is a Milwaukee-based indie rock quartet, formed in late 2012. Comprised from both former and current members of Red Knife Lottery, Space Raft, Hot Coffin, The Academy Is, and Call Me Lightning, Whips features Ashley Smith, Christian Hansen, Tyler Chicorel and Andy Mrotek, who bring loud guitars and aggressive vocals and percussion to the forefront to give fans of Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Queens of the Stone Age something to dig into. The band’s newest album, Turn It On, will be released in late December.
