Said The Whale, with Little Mountain has produced their most adventurous effort yet; with juggernaut production values, song suites thatexplode out of the speakers and tracks that blend seamlessly into one another. It finds the group defying rock conventions without sacrificing any of their pop smarts. More diverse than previous albums, Little Mountain is a multi-stylistic tour-de-force that ventures into everything from soaring, horn-laden cabaret ("The Reason") to jaggedly syncopated rock ("We Are 1980") and effervescent guitar pop ("Loveless").

Ticket info is available at the band’s website. All shows will be on sale Saturday January 21: www.saidthewhale.com
