Said the Whale is coming to Golden.

Juno winners come to Rockwater

British Columbia indie rock band Said the Whale is preparing for a show in Golden. Correction: Incorrect ticket prices in the newspaper

Over the past few years, this British Columbia indie rock band has been garnering more and more international attention.

Last year Said the Whale won a Juno for New Group of the Year, and were the subject of a CBC documentary called Winning America.

Promoting their fourth release in four years, Little Mountain, this internationally acclaimed band will be playing at the Rockwater Grill and Bar on Saturday July 7.

After forming five years ago, the five piece, hook-heavy pop-rock band has toured the world, playing some very prestigious gigs including the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, the nationally televised Canada Day celebrations on Parliament Hill, and the Sasquach Music Festival in Washington.

With the new wave-tinged single “Heavy Ceiling” already making its mark on the Canadian rock/alternative charts and videos for all 15 album tracks to exclusively debut online, Little Mountain is shaping up to be one of the landmark rock albums of 2012.

Local band Willhorse will be opening for the group. Tickets are already on sale at the Rockwater and Plain Wayne and Jane, $15 in advance and $20 at the door.

*Editors Note: In the newspaper it says $20 in advance and $15 at the door. We apologize for the error.
