The Chicago Tribune said it best about In The Whale when they said this: “Stripped down to a simple essence, the band's hard-edged fare scampers, thrusts and giddily thrashes...Dirty, fun and caked in garage grime, the songs are unconcerned with trends.”

Unfortunately, the current musical climate is seriously lacking in bands and artists of this caliber. In The Whale harkens back to the time when bands simply plugged in and let the music speak for itself.

That nostalgia, and the Denver, CO duo’s need navigate a world that’s quick to judge and write-off a book by its cover is the foundation for their alternative/punk/hard rock sound that is showcased on the band’s new EP, Quicksand.

Celebrating their six year anniversary in 2017, the band has accumulated a mass of die hard fans and followers thanks to a relentless tour schedule and a live show that’s likened to a sonic boom. Artists and festival promoters have caught notice with the band playing Riot Fest, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Afro Punk, and over 400 shows with the likes of Jane’s Addiction, The Offspring, Gogol Bordello, The Darkness and many more.

Minimalist Vancouver punk duo yelping with abandon about bunnies and toothpaste while their tunes stop and start on the drop of a dime.

Born in a crossfire hurricane, tempered in a furnace of financial adversity, addiction, betrayal, death and decadence, the members of The Psychic Alliance have risen from their origins in saloons and gutters to earn the ragged wounds of their excesses and glut themselves on the wine of their fornications. Psychic superheroes with a penchant for wild bacchanalian performances and forays into the wilderness of ritualized communal catharsis, these miscreants and guttersnipes have painstakingly carved their bloody initials into the flabby paunch of Vancouver's underbelly. Whether you like to fight, fuck, rage, riot, or just dance until you puke ectoplasm, the Alliance will lay their souls on the line to get you on the team.

Honest and the Crow is a two-piece hard blues rock band out of Surrey, BC.
