Denver’s IN THE WHALE members Eric Riley and Nate Valdez sit down with Damian to talk their humble small town origins, moving to Denver, the secrets of their success and their new album: Eric. All that and MORE!

Welcome to your new favorite band.

In March of 2012, I found myself sitting on a Denver patio with my friend Haley day drinking massive amounts of PBR. Hours later and without much choice I found myself being whisked away to Fort Collins, Colorado for the annual FoCoMx festival. FoCoMx is a city wide music festival, very much in the vein of SxSw, only with a much larger emphasis on local, Colorado music.

I don’t remember the details of that night very clearly, but some how I ended up at the Astoria and was baptized by the explosive rock n roll of Denver’s IN THE WHALE. I’ve been following the band half-assed ever since, but it wasn’t until I found myself at the Bluebird interviewing Murder By Death’s Adam Trula that I once again witnessed the raw power and abandonment that is IN THE WHALE.

Not long after I reached out to members of the band about a possible interview and here is that mighty fine interview for you today!

We join Eric Riley and Nate Valdez at Illegal Pete’s on South Broadway in Denver. After bullshitting and enjoying a few delicious adult beverages, the band opens up about their early small town beginnings, how they discovered music in those small towns, finding each other in college at UNC in Greeley. We also talk about their move to Denver, taking the band serious, their secrets of success and their new EP: ERIC. All of that and more on this week’s Podcast!

Do not miss the band’s sure to be sold out album release party at the Larimer Lounge in Denver on November 22nd! For more information, please visit: http://www.larimerlounge.com/event_details.cfm?blogid=1178

Music featured on today’s episode includes: “34-28-32” from CAKE and “On a Roll” from the upcoming Eric.
