Denver post-Rock duo In The Whale is a group we have followed for a long time. The band just dropped their new single “Crosses” via Riot Records. In The Whale often draws comparisons to contemporaries like Melvins, Big Business, Royal Blood, Mantar, and High On Fire! The band has played many festivals and big shows like Riot Fest, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and Afro-Punk, as well as shows with Jane’s Addiction, The Descendents, The Offspring, Gogol Bordello and many more. The band celebrated their 7-year anniversary in 2018 with the release of Dopamine a six track EP produced by Steve Evetts (The Used, Sepultura, Dillinger Escape Plan) and recorded at the Foo Fighters’ famed Studio 606.

Shawn James & The Shapeshifters will perform their upcoming album The Gospel According to Shawn James & The Shapeshifters for the first time on February 14 at The Smoke & Barrel Tavern in Fayetteville, AR. Joining them will be Denver, CO’s IN THE WHALE.
They had previously announced a Kickstarter campaign in support of their album, which can be found here.
SHAWN JAMES & THE SHAPESHIFTERS are a 5-piece rock band from Fayetteville, Arkansas. At first glimpse, you might confuse them with a bluegrass or metal band. Influenced by every type of music, and growing up in several heavy and folky bands, the sound is not what you would expect. With a different vibe for every EP released so far, they truly embody the phrase “shapeshifters.”
