All online tickets come with music!
A ticket to dates on Freelance Whales’ tour gets you more than entry to a show. Every online ticket automatically includes a digital version of Freelance Whales’ new album Diluvia. The album will be delivered directly to your inbox on street date. But you don't have to wait that long for music. Shortly after purchase, you'll also receive instructions on how to redeem a four track sampler in advance of release. For every online ticket purchased, you’ll get:
• Four tracks -- “Locked Out,” “Spitting Image,” along with two other Freelance Whales songs -- delivered on August 20th.
• A digital download of Freelance Whales’ new album Diluvia delivered on October 9th.
To call them multi-instrumentalists might be a little overdone. The kids in Freelance whales are really just collectors, at heart. They don't really fancy buffalo nickels or Victorian furniture, but over the past two years, they've been collecting instruments, ghost stories, and dream-logs. Somehow, from this strange compost heap of little sounds and quiet thoughts, songs started to rise up like steam from the ground.The first performance of these songs took place in January of 2009, in Staten Island's abandoned farm colony, a dilapidated geriatric ward, in one of New York's lesser visited boroughs. A seemingly never-ending jigsaw of small rooms, the farm colony ate them whole and threatened to never regurgitate them. And even though the onlookers were only spiritual presences, the group was still palpably nervous and visibly cold. After a bit of singing, strumming and stomping asbestos, they realized that they'd found a good crowd. They heard a bit of clapping from an adjacent room, also some laughing, but not a single soul asked about their record.
