[on the road] Said the Whale

Vancouver, Canada’s Said the Whale made their first foray into the U.S. last March, touring on their sophomore album Islands Disappear, traveling from Seattle to Austin’s SXSW and back up the West Coast. Now as they ready to release a new EP in November, the quintet prepares to launch another tour of the United States, touching down in some familiar spots along the West Coast as well as a spattering of dates in unfamiliar territory around the rest of the U.S.. They’ll be joined by Kelowna, BC’s atmospheric progressive pop band We Are the City, who will release in the U.S. their debut EP, High School, plus brand new 7″ single, “Mourning Song/Morning Song” on October 4.
