SAID THE WHALE ANNOUNCE hawaiii NEW ALBUM FOR RELEASE SEPTEMBER 17, 2013

SAID THE WHALE confirm their new studio album, hawaiii will be released on September 17, 2013. Intentionally using a lower-case ‘h’ and ending in a trifecta of ‘i’s’ the Vancouver-based quintet and 2011 JUNO Award winners for New Group Of The Year wanted to put some distance and distinction between the sun-filled U.S. State, so far from their Vancouver, BC home base.

The album title also mirrors the different way Said The Whale assembled this new album. Singer/songwriter Tyler Bancroft noted: “Instead of booking a solid block of time to record the entire album, we did it in short bursts over a period of six months. The time in between sessions allowed us to reflect on what we’d recorded, to tour and road-test some of the songs, and to continue writing.”

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.
