The White Foliage is an independent rock band from North Dakota. Its founding members, Charles Gokey and Marie J. Parker, met at a band camp in July 2001, while in high school. Although the two lived 500 km apart, in Fargo, North Dakota and Williston, North Dakota, respectively, the two started what they term a "music project" by the name of Marie and the Flying Nuns. They exchanged tapes by mail and worked on music using four-track recorders for a period. In January 2003, the duo changed its name to They, Monotone, and began to forge a tie to the band In Ink Please. In November the group went through another name change, to The Algorithmic Convulsions, and in February 2004, In Ink Please invited the group, now renamed The Foliage, to share their first split CD on Fall Records. In July 2005 the band released a mini-LP, "Zurich" on Fall Records under the moniker The White Foliage. The group also added a third member, Alex Abnos, during a tour of the Midwest in mid-2005.

In 2008, after an extended hiatus, the band released the Bright Teeth EP, marking a shift toward a poppy-er, more electronic sound.
