SAID THE WHALE I LOVE YOU EP MOVES TO JUNE 4
EP TITLE-TRACK MARKS THE HIGHEST CHARTING RADIO SINGLE IN THE BAND’S CAREER IN CANADA &THE U.S.
SUMMER TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED
Due to an increased demand, SAID THE WHALE is moving forward the release date of their new EP by two weeks to June 4, 2013. Currently sitting at #11 on the Mediabase Alternative Rock chart and charting Top 20 at #18 on the BDS Modern Rock chart, the EP namesake single I Love You scored out of the box adds at stations across Canada and saw debut airplay on Alt Nation (Sirius XM) and at stations in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Diego, Denver, Baltimore, Seattle and Portland – where KNRK moves the track to Heavy Rotation this week.
Produced by Tom Dobrzanski (The Zolas, We Are The City) and the band’s own Tyler Bancroft, I Love You brings the sundrenched, sing-along harmonies and the hooky pop/rock this JUNO-winning band is known for. The EP is rounded out by two additional tracks, Barbara-Ann and Mother both infectious, catchy gems, just in time for the summer.
Today Said The Whale, recently crowned as the Must Follow Artist Of The Year at the 2013 Sirius/XM Indie Awards, announce Canadian and American tour dates to coincide with the EP release – all dates are noted below. The band were nominated for Alternative Album Of The Year, and the artwork for 2012’s Little Mountain, was nominated for Recording Package Of The Year at the 2013 JUNO Awards. It was also recently announced that BC-based beer company Townsite Brewing (in partnership with CBC Music), has named a Belgian Pale Ale in honour of the band: Said The Ale.
Plans are to have a new Said The Whale record out, this fall. Stay tuned for further news and check in regularly at: www.saidthewhale.com
