SAID THE WHALE: tour! treats! album teaser!

Vancouver indie darlings Said The Whale have their fins set on overdrive as they release their next single “The Magician (Camilo)”, prepare for a summer tour, and press a limited edition run of their 7” that features the single as well as three other tracks: "Strong Swimmers", "Love is Art" and "Upset Her".
After building a solid fanbase in Vancouver’s independent music scene Said The Whale have received a shout out from Perez Hilton, features on YouTube and MySpace Music for their video “This City's A Mess”, landed some stellar slots at Junofest and Vfest, and opened for friends including Mother Mother and City and Colour.
“If The Killers and Badly Drawn Boy were to have a love child, it'd be Said The Whale. Remember when "alternative" music used to be a real trendy word? Well, that really is the best way to describe this band...Said The Whale makes delightfully quirky music. It's infectious!”
- Perez Hilton

Fans can expect their full length album 'Islands Disappear' this fall on October 13 via Upper Management Management Recording Co/EMI and produced by Howard Redekopp (Tegan and Sara, Mother Mother, Hannah Georgas) and Tom Deobrzanski (Hey Ocean, Lotus Child). In the meantime, check out the single, go see them play, and count your lucky stars if you’re lucky enough to get your hands on a vinyl copy. Hull speed ahead!
“Just when you think cynicism has completely permeated the indie scene, a band pops up to make you optimistic again. Enter Said The Whale, a group of twentysomethings full of youthful energy unseen in this country since Sloan circa Twice Removed."
