TITLE TRACK FROM SAID THE WHALE’S NEW BRIGHTON EP
AVAILABLE NOVEMBER 8 ON HIDDEN PONY RECORDS

With the promise of Said the Whale’s brand new EP on the horizon, the prestigious music blog Consequence of Sound is excited to premiere the title track from the upcoming release today. According to guitarist and vocalist Tyler Bancroft, the song has a particularly interesting origin:

“The song is about a NASA research team working at Pavillion Lake in BC. They are studying these rare-occurring microbialite structures at the bottom of the lake and comparing them to the first life on earth, looking for clues about the beginning of life. The song is written from the perspective of one of these microbialites, and how their environment is being invaded just to answer a scientific question about the past. …That weird enough for you? Because its true!”

The New Brighton EP is Said the Whale’s the first new music since 2009’s acclaimed full-length, Islands Disappear, and will be released on November 8th on Hidden Pony Records. The 4-track digital EP was recorded this summer in addition to the album recording sessions at Blue Wave and Vertical Studios in Vancouver with longtime producer, Tom Dobrzanski. The forthcoming full-length album, yet untitled, is being mixed by Jack Joseph Puig, a multiple Grammy Award winner who has worked with Green Day, Klaxons, Weezer and No Doubt and the official album release date has been set for March 6, 2012.

Said the Whale is currently on a tour of the U.S. with B.C. friends We Are The City. After their U.S. run, Said the Whale will return to Canada to play a set of very special holiday shows December 8 and 9 at The Phoenix in Toronto, supporting Born Ruffians and Tokyo Police Club.
