Noah and the Whale, ‘L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N’ new music video release

with 3 comments

My favourite folk band, Noah and the Whale, released the official video to their upcoming single today; L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.

The single is set for release on February 28th, 2011 and is taken from their upcoming third album ‘Last Night On Earth.’ The album follows on March 7th, 2011.

The track has more than a hint of country about it; perhaps influenced by the time the band spent recording the album around L.A. The music is mellow and the lyrics are sunkissed, as Fink narrates the stories of two main protagonists; one male, one female, both following their creative and performing dreams, with several physical and mental obstacles along the way but all the while not taking L.I.F.E too seriously. Fink muses about not having more money than sense; but having heart and going your own way. This upbeat and parabolic track resurrects the band we were introduced to back in 2008 with their debut record ‘Peaceful, the World Lays Me Down.’

Tour dates to bookend the album’s release include:

Thursday 17th February – LONDON, Koko (NME Awards Show)

Wednesday 30th  March – MANCHESTER, Deaf Institute

Thursday 31st March – LEEDS, Brundenell

Saturday 2nd April – GLASGOW, Stereo

Sunday 3rd April – DUBLIN, Whelans

Monday 4th April – BRISTOL, Thekla

Tickets can be purchased via www.seetickets and  A free download of new album track ‘Wild Thing‘ is also available from the band’s official website at:

I can’t wait for the new album and will be at the front of the queue at Deaf Institute, Manchester to see the boys. I reviewed their show at Manchester Cathedral last year and it remains one of the best live shows I’ve ever witnessed. Very excited!

  3. I believe it is yes. I think I’m going to like the country sound of the new album. I’m going to watch them at the Ritz in Manchester in May, can’t wait! I think they are light years ahead of Mumford and Sons, but irritatingly they appear to be grabbing all the headlines these days.
