Denver, Colorado-based duo In The Whale are all set to release their new EP DOPAMINE on August 3rd. The heavy rockers’ new album was recorded at the Foo Fighter’s Studio 606 and is being teased with the lead single, “Highways”. The band — consisting of Nate Valdez and Eric Riley — have steadily built a solid following thanks in large to their frequent, and energetic, live performances. So much so, that they’ve played the likes of Riot Fest, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Afro Punk, and Warped Tour, among others.
Currently on a headlining tour across the US, which kicked off on July 3rd and runs through to mid-September.
Commenting on the new album’s recording process and then some, Nate Valdez noted: “We wanted to capture a raw and natural feeling for our newest EP, so we decided to record the songs live in the studio to two inch tape. Keeping with that theme, the lyric video for “Highways,” was filmed in real time with an old Kodak Carousel slide projector, and each side is focused on the fly.”
