The World's Best American Band. The bold statement from Louisville's White Reaper is not only the title of their new album but also the band's credo. "Because we are the best," says guitarist/vocalist Tony Esposito. "Just like Muhammad Ali was the greatest, you gotta say it out loud for people to believe it." And with that mentality, the band hit the studio with close friend and producer Kevin Ratterman (My Morning Jacket, Young Widows) and made a good ol' fashioned in-your-face rock 'n' roll record. "We didn't make this record or start this band because we wanted to come across in a single, certain way," says Esposito. "We just make records that we'd want to hear. We started doing this because it's fun as hell, just as much now as it was when we were 14."
