Last year we featured Alt/Rockers Shadow of Whales during our Rock The Summer competition. When they reached out to us with their exciting plans for the New Year, we were more than happy to share the news with our readers.

The boys from Austin have come up with an innovative idea to deliver their music directly to the fans. They plan on releasing twelve singles throughout the year, all exclusively through Patreon.

“Think of our Patreon as a Shadow of Whales Member-Only Access Club to exclusive content that we won’t be releasing to the general public.” explains the band. “In the world of a never-ending plethora of physical and digital distribution for musicians — where on some platforms artists get paid for their work and other platforms they don’t– we decided to put most of our work for the foreseeable future on Patreon so that we could recognize our truest fans by directly rewarding them with not only our music but things like special merchandise, 14inch vinyls of our singles, calendars with our schedules on them, extra media, extra discounts on our public stores, videos on how we make our music and how to play it, the list goes on.”

“Roots”, the first single released is a breath of fresh air, an uplifting start to a brand new year. Their passion and joy performing is alive and well, and expressed perfectly in the track.

If you like what you hear and want to help the cause, you can find their Patreon page here.
