The Danks announce “Gank”

THE DANKS
RELEASE NEW STUDIO ALBUM
GANK ON JUNE 11, 2013

OFFER NEW TRACK “EXPERIMENTAL FICTION

THE DANKS are drifters with a purpose. Their debut album Are You Afraid Of The Danks rallied up the critical masses across North America, and saw the former PEI foursome score adds at US radio and twice charting in the CMJ Top 200. Exclaim called the record: “a power pop-laden effort immersed in reverberating, clunky guitars and dizzying keyboards, with raspy yet balmy vocals.”

On June 11, 2013 they will unleash their second album GANK (Hidden Pony Records). The songs that don’t get your head banging will make you want to rip off your unitard. Today they offer brand new album track Experimental Fiction, channeling some of the best fuzzed out, shoegazing indie rock with a detectable spirit of The Jesus and Mary Chain and the generational slackery of The Strokes at: thedanks.com

Said The Whale announce “I Love You EP”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
SAID THE WHALE announces the first new music from the Vancouver-based quintet since last year’s critically-acclaimed full-length, Little Mountain. Today, the 2011 JUNO Award winners for New Group Of The Year reveal a little taste from their soon-to-be-instant-classic new track I Love You. The new track, a chugging, 70’s flavored, harmony rich, pop-rock tune is the title track from their new EP, produced by Tom Dobrzanski (The Zolas, We Are The City) as well as the band’s own Tyler Bancroft… and mixed by Gus Van Go and Werner F (The Stills, Rah Rah) which will be available to fans on June 18, 2013.

Those who saw Said The Whale rock out at SXSW to a packed house or open for Stars over the last month already got a sneak peak of I Love You, as it’s become a staple of their live set. The EP will be rounded out by three additional new tracks and will serve as a precursor to their eagerly anticipated new album, which is due this Fall. A full listing runs below. View the teaser video for “I Love You” at saidthewhale.com.
