New Music From Said The Whale

“Though fewer in number, the pulse between the remaining members has grown louder and more confident than ever before.” – NYLON

“Bursts of electronic bass compliment bright synths and bittersweet vocals” – Consequence of Sound

“An explosive synth-backed outpouring” – Noisey

“Their best effort yet.” – CBC Music

JUNO Award-winning chart-toppers Said The Whale have announced a deluxe edition release of their 2017 LP As Long As Your Eyes Are Wide via Hidden Pony Records. Released one year after the original on March 30, the album includes 10 additional tracks, 5 B-sides, 4 acoustic versions, and 1 new cover song. To celebrate the release, the band has shared one of the previously unreleased tracks “Congratulations”.

Previously operating as a five-piece, the current trio – made up of frontmen Tyler Bancroft and Ben Worcester and keyboardist Jaycelyn Brown – have created their most collaborative, focused record to date. Previous releases highlighted the contrast between the two founders’ eclectic rock influences and salt-of-the-earth folksiness. Here, their styles become one. Despite the album’s many adventurous sonic forays, it remains true to the spirit of their classic work. At its core, As Long As Your Eyes Are Wide is a singer-songwriter record, guided by introspective lyrics and alchemical group harmonies from Ben, Tyler and Jaycelyn.

Additionally, the band has released a 5 episode podcast titled Demoitis. Each episode explores a song from As Long As Your Eyes Are Wide as well as featuring discussions with peers in the Canadian music scene such as Max Kerman (Arkells), Graham Wright (Tokyo Police Club), Ryan Guldemond (Mother Mother) and more.

As Long As Your Eyes Are Wide: Deluxe Edition + B-Sides is available via the band’s website, Spotify, and Apple Music.
