Whales and Aurora signed to Slow Burn Records for release of “The Shipwreck” album in may 2012. “The Shipwreck” is the result of several days of hard work. It is a concept album that brings the listener, step by step, to a negative status of consciousness; a desperate, black and white vision which arrives to an apathetic acceptation of things as they are. Passing by different chapters and different emotional landscapes, the bad journey described by W&A is composed by 7 tracks. Recorded at Raptor Studio with producer Matteo “Ciube” Tabacco and Chris Dowhan from Planet Red Studios (Virginia, USA), who worked with bands such Giant, Spitfire, Night Like These and The Black Dahlia Murder.

Whales and Aurora’s project was born at the beginning of 2008 as a 3-piece band, with former members of LaPeste.
Coming from different musical realities, W&A decided to focus on the emotional impact of sound engaging in a open minded musical research.
