THE LIGHTHOUSE AND THE WHALER have announced the release of their EP Paths, out October 6. Their first single off the EP, entitled “Paths”, is out now. The EP is the bands highly anticipated follow up to their 2015 album Mont Royal, which received glowing support from the likes of Rolling Stone, Paste Magazine, and NPR.

"I always believed art was about understanding,” says Lead singer-songwriter Michael LoPresti. “The songs on ‘Paths’ came during a period where I was struggling with some of the truths I had prescribed to in my life. Things like family, spirituality, and where I fit into the world. I think ‘Paths’ is my way of understanding some of that, or at least the first step on the journey. We’re all on a path, I’m just trying to find mine. I hope the songs we’ve made help people in whatever place in life they find themselves in, like I said before art is, in my estimation, about understanding and maybe together we can find what we need."

In addition to the Paths EP announcement, The Lighthouse and the Whaler will be supporting the release in major cities across the US on a 12-date tour. The dates kick off at the Grog Shop in their hometown of Cleveland, OH, with stops in Nashville’s The End, New York’s Mercury Lounge, and many more. Full dates listed below.

The band will be participating in the Sofar Sounds' Give A Home event, a partnership with Amnesty International and VICE to help raise awareness for the world's refugees.

The Lighthouse and The Whaler is Michael LoPresti, Matthew LoPresti, Mark Porostosky Jr., and Ryan Walker
