Noah and the Whale is a critically acclaimed indie-folk-rock band from London. Noah and the Whale's debut album, Peaceful, the World Lays Me Down, reached number 5 in the UK album chart when it was released in 2008. The band's second album, The First Days of Spring, was released a year later and whilst it didn't do quite so well in the charts, it still received very positive reviews from music critics.
Noah and the Whale released their third studio album, Last Night on Earth, in March 2011 to critical acclaim. A message posted on the band's website says of the album: "Our third album is adventurous...it is unmistakably Noah and the Whale".
Noah and the Whale will perform 'a month of Sundays' at London's Palace Theatre in April and May 2013. The gigs will be in support of the band's upcoming fourth studio album Heart of Nowhere.
