Whale and the Wolf, an independent band with over a million Spotify streams and five singles charting in the Top 40 for Canadian Active Rock, recently teamed up with Grammy-nominated producer Jimmy Mansfield and Paul Rogers to solidify their impending rise, offering a fresh take on alternative rock with their blend of hard pop.

Veins is about the endless battles and negotiations with inner demons, involving the self-medication of those feelings and the addiction that can come with them. It’s the second single off their upcoming EP, ENVY, which weaves a consistent theme of self-reflection and struggling with self-acceptance.
