Freelance Whales swim into town
Having formed in late 2008 in the New York district of Queens, Freelance Whales burst on to the music scene late last year following some attention-grabbing shows at CMJ and SXSW festivals, and the Stateside release of their glowingly received debut, Weathervanes. August 23rd sees the band release their debut album on this side of the Atlantic through Columbia/Mom & Pop. They also release 'Hannah' as a single on the same day.
They’re playing UK dates of Leeds and Reading festival, End of The Road festival as well as Sheffield and Liverpool dates scheduled for the end of August – details to be confirmed.
