National Tour Begins Tomorrow in St.Louis!

Little Sam can barely contain the excitement to see his uncle play in New York the the weekend of the 10th. We like to start them off young!

Tomorrow is the day it all begins - over 5 weeks, 30 cities, and thousands upon thousands of miles will be covered. We have our new record in tow, some new T shirt designs, and lots of music to share with everybody.

The final tour dates are posted below. Full details of each show including other artists on the bill are on both our website and myspace page. We are looking forward to seeing you all on the road - keep checking The Whale's Tale for photos, news, updates and stories about OTW in transit.
