Denver-based two-piece band In The Whale has never made music for anyone but themselves. The duo deals in noisy, thumping rock ’n roll with heavy influences coming from classic punk and metal. Now, the pair has teamed up with Los Angeles noisemakers (and Sub Pop Records act) No Age to record their new release, Neighbors. In The Whale’s new two-song EP was produced by No Age and mixed by Romesh Dodangoda (Motörhead, Bullet For My Valentine), and today we’re debuting the title track. The band comments:

“The song tells the story of basically a grumpy neighbor who won’t answer the door for anyone, but tells a greater narrative of what In The Whale is about: doing what we want to do in life and everything else gets the middle finger.”

In The Whale’s Neighbor EP will be released October 23 via Red Bull Sound Select.
