Detroit, Michiganâ€™s Squid The Whale first formed in 2008 with a revolving lineup of friends that wasnâ€™t solidified until 2011. Singer Bradley Walden notes, â€śWe have all been friends, even enemies at one point. Without Myspace, none of this would be happening right now.â€ť The quartet play a mix of rock and soul with influences from classic rock to hip-hop. Thanks to plenty of grassroots touring, the guys have built a supportive fanbase that allows them to travel, play music and have fun. â€śWe don't know how to doâ€”and loveâ€”anything else,â€ť says Walden.
