The first single released by HEART OF THE WHALE!


Tell the devil
That kid ain't right
Tell him all this ends, tonight
Tell him when the lights go out he may find his way
Tell him if his heart says run
He shouldn’t stay

I’ve traveled across the river battles
I’ve come to tear his gold heart from inside his chest

Tell the devil
If he’s running
Tell him there’s no land in sight
And while his ship is lost at sea
We will plunder
We will be waiting on the shore

Our fires will be blinding
Our drums will be beating
Waiting to watch him burn
As his curses and his shrieking
Only draws us closer

Tell the devil we are coming
When it rains


released February 26, 2015

HEART OF THE WHALE San Francisco, California

Heart of the Whale is a San Francisco rock'n roll band with something very dark up their sleeves. They blend psychedelic gospel, fuzzed out blues and heady distortion. Raucous, beautiful and sometimes harrowing but they do it all with a sideways smile and a tip of the hat.

Their songs are stories heard from across a campfire or lived through a young boy in a small North Carolina church.
