I wrote this song based on my own experiences wrestling with dishonesty and having the same dishonesty come back to me from others. There is a saying “If you spot it, you got it,” and it made me think being 100% honest is not realistic, so “white” lies are the result. Not speaking the truth completely, but just enough to get by in this life, a tough life, is what inspired me to write this song.
White was produced by Dennis Hill (Hagar/Satriani, Good Charlotte) and recorded/mixed by Kyle Homme (Matt Costa, Sugarcult, Reel Big Fish). Dennis (Face to Face) and Scott Shiflett (Face to Face, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes) contributed guitars, Pete Pacheco (Electric Sister) was on bass, and Nathan Walker (Lit) on drums.
