Add to Calendar
OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS THE LIGHTHOUSE AND THE WHALER HAS ESTABLISHED ITSELF AS A PREVAILING INDIE ROCK ACT. THEY'VE SPENT MUCH OF THAT TIME TRAVELING THE U.S. AND CANADA WHILE SHARING STAGES WITH BANDS LIKE SUFJAN STEVENS, RA RA RIOT, THE TEMPER TRAP AND JUKEBOX THE GHOST. ALL THE WHILE THEY WERE BUILDING THEIR OWN FAN BASE AND HEADLINING MANY OF THEIR OWN TOURS LEADING TO SOLD OUT SHOWS AT STORIED VENUES AROUND THE COUNTRY. DESCRIBED AS "A GENRE-BLURRING INNOVATOR." BY PASTE THE BAND HAS BUILT ON THE MOMENTUM OF THEIR LAST FULL LENGTH RELEASE, 2015'S 'MONT ROYAL', THE BANDS MOST CRITICALLY AND COMMERCIALLY SUCCESSFUL RECORD TO DATE, WHICH ROLLING STONE CALLED "A SINCERE AND IMAGINATIVE EFFORT" AND IMPRESSED NPR SO MUCH THAT THEY NAMED THE BAND ONE OF THEIR '100 BANDS TO SEE AT SXSW' IN 2017.
THE END OF 2017 SAW THE BAND RELEASE THEIR EP 'PATHS', IT WAS WELL RECEIVED BY CRITICS INCLUDING PASTE, SALON AND MORE. THE CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER NAMED IT ONE OF THE BEST EP'S OF THE YEAR. THE BAND HEADLINED AN EAST COAST TOUR IN SUPPORT AND ENDED THE TOUR WITH A SOLD OUT MERCURY LOUNGE SHOW IN NEW YORK CITY. IN 2018 THE BAND RELEASED TWO SINGLES - 'INTO THE UNKNOWN' AND 'FUTURE BLIND'. THEY HEADLINED A WEST COAST TOUR IN MAY/JUNE. THEY ALSO ADDED TO THEIR EVER GROWING LIST OF SYNCS WITH A PLACEMENTS IN ABC'S GREY'S ANATOMY, AMERICAN IDOL AND IN THE WORLDWIDE TRAILER FOR DISNEY'S 'CHRISTOPHER ROBIN'.
Fickle Hellcat consists of female powerhouse Rachel Maxann as lead vocalist/Guitarist, producer and versatile dj/artist Mike Wiley as bassist, and seasoned percussionist Eric Wright on the drums.
Longtime friends, the stars aligned to bring the trio together to collaborate on a new vintage indie pop rock project. Midwest natives,all three members have played around the country and internationally, and are excited to be able to share their experience with a new audience. They have released one single 'With Without ' and are currently working on their first album.
