CONFIRMED US TOUR

Cleveland, OH quartet The Lighthouse And The Whaler are excited to announce the release of their new album “This Is An Adventure,” out September 18th. Spending the last 12 months on the road winning over both fans and critics with their addictive pop-influenced indie rock, the band was eager to get in the studio and record this new collection of road-tested songs that already has Paste Magazine hailing TLATW a band “You Should Listen To Now” and praising their “folk rooted in gorgeous harmonies and acoustic finger acrobatics” with “a more complex, ’60s pop direction.”
Produced by Ryan Hadlock (The Lumineers & Ra, Ra, Riot), “This Is An Adventure” was recorded in a refurbished barn at Bear Creek Studios in Seattle, WA. Despite most of the album being written in Cleveland, OH the band was extremely meticulous in the studio, which brought the whole album together. “We really thought about every part and how it would affect the way the song comes together,” says singer Michael LoPresti. “We spent hours in the studio trying to get each part to have this radiating feeling and energy.” The end result is a versatile album that brilliantly shows off the bands strength as both musicians and songwriters.
See what KEXP, MTV, Filterand a wide range of music lovers are talking about on new song “Venice” (approved to embed and share with your readers):
“This album is about making your life an adventure and each song on the record has its own part in that,” LoPresti says while talking about the album’s ideology. “The idea of an adventure -it’s ups and downs, and the emotional complexity played a huge role in how we crafted the album. We believe in embracing the life you have, and we poured that sentiment into the record. Hopefully the music creates an atmosphere for someone else’s adventure to begin.”
The Lighthouse And The Whaler have already played over 200 shows, including dates with The Temper Trap, The Dodos, GIVERS, Sufjan Stevens, Cults, and Best Coast as well as appearances at SXSW, Pop Montreal, and Midpoint Music Festival. The band is looking forward to hitting the road later this month with Empires and The Forecast. Tour dates below.
