Northwest Tour begins August 13th

We are gearing up for our small summer tour which begins thursday the 13th in Cottage Grove, OR. All details are available on our brand new website www.orthewhale.com.

There are four brand new songs on our myspace page, ready to go! Its a small taste of the new record, brought to you through one of the wonders of the modern world: the internets.

All this new stuff makes one wonder "isn't anything built to last anymore?" and it turns out that yes, it is. You can use your skill of recognizing object permanence with Or, the Whale dry goods available at our Big Cartel store.
