The Lighthouse and The Whaler Kick Off Fall Tour In Support Of New Album

Emily Meister
If you’re free Saturday night and feel like throwing yourself into what MTV calls a “really cool melodic folk rock” experience, you should probably do yourself a favor and check out The Lighthouse and The Whaler at the Grog Shop in their hometown of Cleveland.

Their new album, This Is An Adventure, is set for release just mere days away on Tuesday, September 18th. The supporting tour kicks off tomorrow night with what is sure to be a performance to remember at the Grog Shop as part of its 20th Anniversary Extravaganza, and will also include dates in Seattle, Los Angeles, Denver, Chicago, Nashville, and New York, among others.

If you’re still unsure if you want to postpone your Saturday night shenanigans for a few hours in order to stop by the show, perhaps this will persuade you.
In case you have some weird, superhuman ability to fight the urge of curiosity and therefore resisted clicking that link, let me tell you what marvelous world awaits you if you decide to change your mind. If you click that link, your ears will have the pleasure of experiencing all of the magic that comprises The Lighthouse and the Whaler’s new album, before it’s even available. On the other hand, if you’re like me and click on every link you see because you simply can’t fathom the idea of not knowing where it leads, you’re already in your own little indie-rock world and read all of my ramblings for nothing. But hey, your ears are happy, so let’s focus on that.

One thing is for sure, and that is that The Lighthouse and The Whaler is a band to watch out for. The band received praise from AOL Spinner saying that the band has “ethereal, sweeping melodies and intimate lyrics,” while KEXP has described their sound as “uplifting, rustic, indie pop.”

In case you can’t make it out to the show tomorrow, don’t fret. We’ll be there to report every last detail, so check back here within the next few days and you can relive the experience through us. That being said, we still reeeeeeeally hope to see you at the Grog Shop tomorrow.
