The bombastic duo In The Whale is an extremely unique act. They push sonic boundaries to the limit and deliver a relentless pounding to the senses. Their alternative, post-rock intensity creates a seismic event, showing a band not afraid to take chances or show any fear in their songwriting.
They have just released their new single Smoke Break via Riot Records (part of Golden Robot Global Entertainment Group) which is available now on all digital platforms.
Smoke Break is about addiction, depression, suicide, and what happens when we isolate ourselves for too long. When someone reaches a breaking point (saying, today’s the day), things can go bad. The song has been released to coincide with Mental Health Awareness Month.
In The Whale have recently dropped 3 critically and fan acclaimed singles: Crosses, Drug Dealer and Jeffrey.
In The Whale have been turning heads and accumulating a mass of die-hard fans and followers thanks to a relentless tour schedule and an explosive live performance. Artists and festival promoters have taken notice, with the band playing Riot Fest, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and Afro Punk, as well as shows with Jane’s Addiction, The Descendents, The Offspring, Gogol Bordello and many more.
The band celebrated their 7-year anniversary in 2018 with the release of Dopamine – a six track EP produced by Steve Evetts (The Used, Sepultura, Dillinger Escape Plan) and recorded at the Foo Fighters’ famed Studio 606. Dopamine’s first week sales made it on to the Billboard Heatseekers, Independent Albums and Heatseekers Mountain (#1) charts.
«Dirty, fun, and caked in garage grime, the songs are unconcerned with trends».
