The Lighthouse and the Whaler is a band from Cleveland, Ohio, though its name alludes to the waters off the coast of Massachusetts. Inspired by a theme from Moby Dick, the band’s name alone is enough to make underpaid Literature teachers beam with pride. The Lighthouse and the Whaler recently released its new album, “This is an Adventure, produced by Ryan Hadlock (The Lumineers, Ra Ra Riot), which NPR Music liked so much it named the band the “next artist on the rise. The album debuted at #92 on iTunes alternative music charts in it’s first week. The album gained momentum on radio too reaching #104 on the CMJ music charts. The band has shared stages with the likes of The Temper Trap, Cults and GIVERS, and just finished touring with Ra Ra Riot in the spring. John Richards of KEXP called The Lighthouse and the Whaler his new favorite band. He may be the smartest man on the planet.
