Interview: In The Whale
When you think of a band a few things come to mind. Typically in your head you’re thinking a band is about 3-5 maybe 6 musicians on stage rocking out. In The Whale is here to shatter that. This two-piece band gets their name honest with monumental sound and killer stage presence that you won’t find anywhere else. Rewind a few years ago to a small club in Lexington KY and I found this band opening up for 10 Years and they absolutely blew me away.
Fast forward three years later and this band is still making waves (Whale references for days) and I’m here for it. So, once we got this show together I knew at some point I had to have them on. We discuss everything from what the band has been doing in off time during Covid to designing new Merch to even the return of touring! Which for them is just beginning! Make sure you do not sleep on this band. Download, buy, seek out their tunes and videos and support rock music because these guys are just getting started!
Brandon: "Mental health is so important especially to an artist when you’re away from your family and your loved ones, your kids, your wives. For me mental health and music cross so perfectly well and there is a song for every occasion. "
Nate: "Music is so important and I feel really confused when I meet people and they're like “you know, you know it’s okay”. I don’t understand this person. "

About In the Whale:
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 caught notice, with the band playing Riot Fest, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and Afro Punk, as well as shows with Jane’s Addiction, Descendents, The Offspring, Gogol Bordello and many more.
The band celebrated their seven year anniversary in 2018 with “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, without the support of a label, or mainstream radio play.
