White Rhino


Heavy psychedelic rock & roll for those living a wild lifestyle. If you like classic guitar rock and current indie psych rock you will love White Rhino.


Started in spring 2008 as an outlet for 3 Austin music scene veterans' desire to start an exciting heavy psychedelic rock n roll experience. White Rhino recorded their first demo within days of forming and have been playing non stop ever since.

In 2009 White Rhino has hit their stride. Highlights include:

-Released debut full length album
-Featured artist on 94.5 'The Buzz' Houston's 'Texas Buzz' showcase
-Playing to huge crowds during SXSW
-A successful west coast with multiple dates in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Las Vegas, and Tucson

Right now White Rhino is staying local, solidifying their Texas fanbase and writing and performing new material. Plans are in the works to tour and conquer the United States during the summer and head back into the studio in the fall.
