Very excited to share another song from CASCADIA, which comes out Feb 8 2019! This song is called Level Best. I wrote it for my son, Grayson. I wrestle a lot with how much (if any) of his non-consenting face to share on our band's social media... I hate the idea of treading into the #CuteKidsForLikes zone, but at the same time I really value the relationship that our band has with our supporters. Our music is personal by nature so there's not a lot we don't share here. This song in particular is literally about my unconditional love for my child. So it feels weird to hide him... There are a lot of Canadian bands whose members have children. Some share them, some don't. I think it's fairly proven by now that sharing pics of your kids doesn't make your music more or less popular, so I can at least rest easy knowing that. Anyways, that's a pretty lengthy debate that doesn't need to happen on this page. Back to the music: I hope you like the song! Cascadia comes out in EIGHT WEEKS and we can't wait!!! The visual below is intentionally face-free (that's G riding my shoulders), but episode two of our Cascadia mini-doc series, which also came out today, is a lot less guarded. You can watch that here: https://youtu.be/3G0F6sQbBbk. And if you want to hear Level Best on your fav streaming platform, here are those helpful links: iTunes/Apple Music: https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/level-best/1441036005?i=1441036296 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/track/6Py7Q9pWRB6IIYNPnBrCZQ?si=ssYBvPIuRJGbLbx_wt98Jw Google Play: https://play.google.com/music/preview/B6jjlapf5tgc7l6gggqti6kgdki?PAffiliateID=1101l78Z Amazon: www.amazon.com/dp/B07L68BMCB

All three of us were in Toronto a while back and stopped by 102.1 the Edge for a Holiday-themed photoshoot. It was so nice for all of us to be together in this photo! I love putting my arms around my bandmates...they both have such sturdy, angular shoulders. What a lucky guy I am to have two bandmates who always smile so perfectly and behave so politely. How’d I get so lucky? #together #allofus #tylerbenandjayce #realhumans #dontswipetothenextphoto #artsandcraftsliterally @ 102.1 the Edge

Wrote this one for my son. This is another song from #Cascadia - we will be sharing the recorded version on Friday (on all streaming platforms!), but thought we'd mix it up a bit and release the acoustic version first this time because we're grownups and we can do what we want. And as always, a reminder that you can pre-order our new album which comes out Feb 8, at discovercascadia.com! 🌲🌲🌲

THE STORY BEHIND UNAMERICAN: Around November of last year it was suggested that Kevin Drew of Broken Social Scene might be a good person to produce our upcoming record, which was very exciting for me, as he is one of my favourite musicians. So a phone call was arranged to discuss the possibility of working together. I dialed him up and we started chatting. As we spoke, it became immediately apparent that Kevin was in the bath, which was both disarming and strangely relaxing. The gentle lapping of bath water was somehow putting me at ease as I talked to one of my musical idols. At some point during the conversation he said to me “man, just do what you do best: write a pop song!” And so, listen: when Kevin Drew tells you to write a pop song, you sit the fuck down and you write a pop song. So that’s what I did. We didn't end up working together on the record, but our conversation sparked this song and that's good enough for me! I would like to clarify that UnAmerican is not specifically about Kevin Drew, rather, I just liked how it sounded when I hung up the phone and said aloud to myself “Hmmm. Well then. Kevin wants to hear a pop song.”

TORONTO/VICTORIA: second shows have been added to our tour with @mothermothermusic! Tix on sale this Friday 🎟🎟🎟 #DANCEANDCRY

Cascadia is available for pre-order on “Coke-Bottle Green” translucent vinyl. $22 gets you the record, a print from our UnAmerican video, AND a sweet pin/patch/sticker pack (swipe for pics!) 🥤Also, credit where credit is due: I was browsing at Red Cat Records a few weeks ago and picked up an album by a Toronto band called Sportsfan. When I opened it up at home I was immediately smitten with the color of the vinyl they chose, and thought it would compliment our album art really nicely. So that’s what we chose to press Cascadia on. Thanks for the inspo, @sportsfanto!

Cascadia is the title track from our new album of the same name, out Feb 8, 2019. We gave the album the name not because we are secessionists (Cascadia is the name of a proposed country that would connect the southern tip of Alaska to the northern tip of California, bordered on the east by the Cascade mountain range), but because we have a deep-rooted love of the region. Also, how about this funny tidbit: our very first album "Taking Abalonia" was also named after a proposed country! (Do a google search for "abalonia country", it's such a cool story). We are SO excited to take this new music on the road - we have just been added as the support act on Mother Mother's #DANCEANDCRY tour in early 2019! MM are one of our favorite Vancouver bands, we've been pals for years, and this pairing is a dream. These shows are going to be ✨MAGICAL✨. Dates are below, and all ticket purchase links can be found on our website www.saidthewhale.com 🌲🌲🌲 Jan 25 - Courtenay, BC @ Sid Williams Theatre Jan 26 - Campbell River, BC @ Tidemark Theatre Jan 27 - Campbell River, BC @ Tidemark Theatre Jan 28 - Victoria, BC @ The Royal Jan 30 - Nanaimo, BC @ Port Theatre Feb 1 - Nelson, BC @ Spiritbar Feb 2 - Kelowna, BC @ Kelowna Community Theatre Feb 3 - Cranbrook, BC @ Key City Theatre Feb 4 - Kamloops, BC @ CJ’s Feb 7 - Vancouver, BC @ Orpheum Feb 8 - Calgary, AB @ Grey Eagle Event Centre Feb 12 - Red Deer, AB @ Bo’s Bar & Grill Feb 14 - Grande Prairie, AB @ Better Than Fred’s Feb 15 - Edmonton, AB @ Northern Alberta Jubilee Feb 16 - Saskatoon, SK @ Coors Event Centre Feb 17 - Winnipeg, MB @ Burton Cummings Theatre Feb 23 - London, ON @ London Music Hall Feb 25 - Oshawa, ON @ The Music Hall Feb 26 - Gulph, ON @ Guelph Concert Theatre Feb 28 - Toronto, ON @ Phoenix Concert Hall Mar 2 - Hamilton, ON @ First Ontario Concert Hall Mar 4 - Kingston, ON @ Grand Theatre Mar 5 - Peterborough, ON @ The Venue Mar 7 - Ottawa, ON @ Algonquin Commons Mar 8 - Montreal, QC @ L’Astral

WE ARE ANNOUNCING TOUR DATES TOMORROW 🚙🌲🌲🌲🚙 Also: a big thank you to all the radio stations who have been spinning UnAmerican! The song has cracked top-10 at Alt Radio in Canada and is still on the rise. Your support means so much to us!! ❤️

This is a device for staying hydrated. It‘s copper-brushed stainless steel and was made locally by Moonshine Dreams. Available only as a part of our Cascadia pre-order bundles! www.discovercascadia.com

Did anyone catch this frame of the UnAmerican vid when it came out? 😏 It happens at the 2:33 mark and lasts 1/12 of a second, so don’t feel too bad if you missed it! I should mention: EVERY pre-order of our new album will be shipped with one of the original prints from this video shoot, signed by us. And to whoever gets this one: I demand a stop-motion selfie from you. (I don’t know exactly what that means but I want to see it!)

Here’s Jayce calling our Cascadia Hotline from Iceland, but did you know you can text the hotline too?? Shoot us a text at 1 (855) 247-2342 and tell us where you are!! Will try very hard to reply to everything🌲📱🌲📱🌲

THIS IS THE COOLEST. Amazing Vancouver artist (and friend) Holly Clarke has painted a 2019 Cascadia Calendar. We’ve printed it on heavy-weight, textured art paper and have bundled these up with the album pre-order. It measures 19” x 29” and will look amazing up on your wall. 🎄🎄🎄And here’s the sweet deal for your Christmas shopping needs: if you pre-order this tier of the bundle by Dec 10, we will personally ship your calendar before everything else so it arrives before Xmas. (Or we could arrange to meet somewhere in Vancouver to avoid shipping)

🌲WAKE UP is the opening track on our new record, “Cascadia”. This song is on all the streaming services and available as a free download when you pre-order the record!! (www.discovercascadia.com) A bit about the song for those interested: “Wake Up is about proximity. We live in the heart of Vancouver and we breathe outside of it. This song references the things we know and love as part of our urbanite lives, and our natural desire to get away from the city. Everywhere on earth there are beautiful places - we keep them close and call them sacred. This song is about OUR sacred places. The love we have for these areas is written all over this album and in our personalities.”

In case you missed it last week: we announced our new record “Cascadia”, out Feb 8, 2019 via @artsandcrafts.

Exciting times!! 🌲🌲🌲 (This image is the back cover of the LP, photographed by Vanessa Heins)

For your Sunday morning viewing pleasure: this is the first of a three-part mini docu-series about our band, with each epiosde focusing on a different member. Episode one takes us up to beautiful Whistler, BC, where we experience a day in the life of Jaycelyn. She shows us the sights, talks about shredding pow on the slopes, and shares her love of cooking and baking. Later in the episode she cooks a beautiful meal and is joined for dinner by Ben and Tyler. Hope you all enjoy this little glimpse! Directed by Zac Vague and Sterling Larose.

This is the Cascadia Rucksack. It was designed by us to be the perfect fashion-meets-function dream backpack, then built by hand in Edmonton, AB by Isaac at Fieldwork Co. Made from the finest waxed canvas, complimented with brass hardware and premium European veg tan leather. It’s minimal in its basic design, but it also has enough sneaky little pockets to store all your stuff and keep things organized. That’s what I love most about it. These will ONLY be available via our album pre-sale. They are one of a kind, made-to-order. This bag is so beautiful I could cry 😭😭😭
Said The Whale Nov 15, 2018
🌲Our sixth studio album “Cascadia” comes out Feb 8, 2019!!🌲 This is our debut album for Arts & Crafts and we could not be more excited to share it with you all. Pre-order starts today.

ALSO today we’ve released TWO more tracks from the album for your listening pleasure. Those are available as instant-grat downloads when you pre-order. (They are also up on streaming services now) ANNNND another thing: all physical pre-orders come with a printed frame from the UnAmerican music video, which we will sign for you. I think that’s it?

That’s up on our YouTube channel. And finally, if you've been following our social feed you have probably already called into our Cascadia Hotline, which is an interactive phone line with a ton more info on the album, some info on each song, and a few other little nuggets, all narrated by CBC's Grant Lawrence. If you haven't called already, give us a ring and leave a message! 1-855-C4S-CDIA. LOTS OF STUFF TODAY, HOLY.
