The band formed while several of the members were attending the University of Missouri; Greg Roberts and Stephen Patterson met at the college in 2004. Alex Even, Adam Russell and Greg had formerly played in the band Texas Chainsaw Mass Choir. Originally, White Rabbits had five members, but following relocation to New York City the following year, the band expanded to six members. The sixth member, Jamie Levinson, had grown up on the same street as Roberts in Webster Groves, Missouri. Roberts and Levinson previously played in a ska band together in high school, The Hubcaps, as well as an acoustic punk band in college.
The White Rabbits recorded their first studio album, Fort Nightly, and released it in 2007 to the public through Say Hey Records. The album was critically lauded throughout the media.
In addition to consistent touring, they have been featured on NPR's World Cafe, where the band discussed how they met and formed in the college town of Columbia, Missouri, their early sound, and performed three songs. They have also performed on the Late Show with David Letterman.
In 2009, the band will release their second album, titled It's Frightening, produced by Britt Daniel, lead singer and guitarist of Spoon. The album is set to be released on TBD Records, which also hosts the bands Radiohead and Underworld.
