I Am The Manic Whale will be returning triumphantly to the Oakwood Centre in September, the venue where their live album New Forms Of Life was recorded. They will be playing a very different show, with several songs from the forthcoming third album, and full production including visuals once again.
I Am The Manic Whale are unashamedly a progressive rock band. Whilst making similar timbral choices to many of the great progressive artists, particularly Genesis, Big Big Train, Spock’s Beard and Neal Morse, I Am The Manic Whale hopes to be able to bring something new to the table. Their intelligent thoughtful lyrics touch on a range of unusual and interesting subjects from a fresh modern perspective; from science fiction to the history of printing, from the decay of a derelict swimming pool to the mobile artistic and engineering creations of Dutch artist Theo Jansen, known as Strandbeests.
We are also delighted to announce that Circu5 will be playing with us.
ROLL UP FOR CIRCU5… THE ENTRANCE FEE IS YOUR MIND
Think CIRCU5… think rock and prog poured into a blender, mixed with a dash of 60s vocal harmonies and lashings of hard-driving rhythms. But while certain influences spring to mind, CIRCU5 exists in its own world of adrenalin-rush anthems, addictive choruses and goose-bump melodies.
CIRCU5 is the project of Steve Tilling – multi-instrumentalist and guitarist/vocalist for TC&I (the band of Colin Moulding and Terry Chambers from XTC).
