Their début album, “Mad Man Circus”, was released in October 2010 over at Asiluum.com netlabel, as a free download (under a Creative Commons licence) and was well received by the critics and the public, receiving positive reviews even from abroad.
White Walls also announce that they will have the support of Monster Energy Romania during the Mad Man Circus European tour. The energizing drink has been “unleashed” recently in Romania, but it has a long history of supporting both famous sportsmen (Valentino Rossi, Jenson Button) and musicians (Norma Jean, Metallica, Linkin Park, Children Of Bodom, Dave Lombardo) all over the world; White Walls is the first local band with which they have collaborated. Also, the band will be using equipment courtesy of MusicGear.ro
