IN THE WHALE RELEASE NEW SINGLE + VIDEO 'CROSSES'
Riot Records brings you the new single from Denver, Colorado’s In The Whale titled Crosses.
In The Whale deliver another aural beating to the senses. The two-piece are hell bent on pummelling you into the ground with their post rock assault.
"Crosses is lyrically about looking yourself in the mirror, realizing everyone is going to die and humbly wondering why we're all here and what this is all for. We tried to execute a feeling of franticness and anxiousness with the push and pull off each musical section."

Crosses is the follow up to the recently released single Drug Dealer. Drug Dealer is a sludgy, bombastic and epic post rock-esque battering. In The Whale has delivered a low-end sonic treat that sits alongside contemporaries like Big Business, Mantar and High On Fire!
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 taken notice, with the band playing Riot Fest, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and Afro Punk, as well as shows with Jane’s Addiction, The Descendents, The Offspring, Gogol Bordello and many more
The band celebrated their 7-year anniversary in 2018 with the release of 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.
"Dirty, fun, and caked in garage grime, the songs are unconcerned with trends.”
–Bob Gendron, Chicago Tribune
"The fandom is ever-expanding after ITW’s latest EP release Dopamine, a collection of six tracks that make you grit your teeth, mosh on command, and maybe shed a tear or two – and that combination is simply as punk as it gets.’’
– Music Existence
"Don’t you just love finding out a band is a two-piece? It always amazes me how full a track can sound even though there are only two musicians rocking out. In The Whale, a dynamic duo from Colorado, have amazed me with their sound and this month they just released their fifth EP, Dopamine."
– Pure Grain Audio
"And therein lies the true dichotomy of In The Whale; a brilliant blending of cathartic, hard rock with glass-raising hooks, that goes far beyond the initial mosh pit party vibe. In The Whale can throw a party, but they can also make its attendees think in the process."
