Shadow of Whales Announce Mid-West Tour and New Album

Shadow of Whales

Austin, TX (July 20th, 2017) — Indie Pop/Rock band, Shadow of Whales (SOW) is announcing they will release their new EP titled “What We Do” on August 14th, 2017. The six track album will be accompanied shortly thereafter by a midwest tour starting in Austin, TX on August 17th, 2017 and ending in New Orleans, LA. Tickets are available via SOW’s website:


Since their incarnation, Shadow of Whales has always pushed a positive message out to their fans and this release is no different. “We want people to know that they’re not alone.” says singer, Josh Flores. “Our hope — our dream — is that people will hear our music and feel empowered and encouraged to be who they are and live their best life.” SOW’s new EP features six new songs meant to aid its listeners in pulling through life’s grievances and celebrating life’s victories.


Shadow of Whales made their debut appearance at the Austin Convention Center in 2013 in front of thousands of people for DellWorld; this act brought them to appear on TV only weeks later on KTBC – FOX 7 and garner praise from people like the Indie Band Guru with statements such as, “Shadow Of Whales has the tunes and the drive to make a big impact on the strong local Austin scene and beyond.” The band’s last album, which charted on CMJ Top 200 and was in rotation at Starbucks Coffee Shops in the U.S and Canada, was released in 2014; SOW has been working, tweaking and teasing new releases ever since through social media and their Patreon page.


The band recently released a cover video of Flagship’s “Mexican Jackpot on their YouTube channel and have more to come soon.
