Said The Whale: Islands Disappear‏

After teasing fans with the release of an exclusive 7" featuring their first single ‘Camilo (The Magician)’ this May, Said The Whale are finally set to release their full length album Islands Disappear on October 13th via Hidden Pony/EMI. Produced by Howard Redekopp (Tegan and Sara, Mother Mother, The New Pornographers) and Tom Dobrzanski (Hey Ocean, Lotus Child), Islands Disappear takes from experiences of driving across Canada set to songs that are sometimes danceable, sometimes folk, and all times intelligent.

Following their summer tour which included a coveted spot at Parliament Hill on Canada Day playing to tens of thousands of people, a featured spot on CBC Radio 3, tons of radio play and adds, The Magician EP is selling out quickly. The anticipated release of Islands Disappear has brought Said The Whale more good fortune including making the finals for the XM Verge Awards 'Artist of the Year' for the second year in a row, an invite to play at the Edge 102.1 studio in Toronto, dates with the lovely Hannah Georgas, and a soon-to-be-released video that we promise is going to float your boat.
“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
