Six Shooter Records' Melissa McClelland and Luke Doucet tie the musical knot with the debut of their new band, Whitehorse, marrying their talent and chemistry on stage as a smoldering duo. Gutsy and resolute in their pursuits of sound and substance, Luke and Melissa's fusion of the personal and professional brings to mind the road-tested romance of Johnny and June.

Individually, Luke and Melissa have been recognized with awards and nominations from the Juno Awards, the Canadian Folk Music Awards, the Hamilton Music Awards, the independent Music Awards and the Polaris Prize. Together, Luke and Melissa create music that cascades forth, rushing like currents fluid and electric. More than the sum of considerable talents, Whitehorse showcases the rarity of true give and take in partnership, uniting falcon with songbird to dramatic effort.

Whitehorse gathers together members of Melbourne Australia's
underground music community to create crushingly heavy, sludge-metal layered with electronics. Drafting members from the punk, grindcore, experimental, rock and noise scenes Whitehorse often garner comparisons to the likes of Corrupted and Khanate.

This their 3rd US tour sees them play 35 dates across the country
including 2 appearances at Chaos In Tejas in Austin, TX.

Not to be missed by fans of the crushingly heavy.

"It's not so much the feverish, rabid, frothing at-the-mouth imp-ish
vocals that make Progression horrifically dark. It's the murk around
them: the dragging static and hanging distortion, the echoing empty spaces and rolling waves of sound... Whitehorse handle havoc deftly: in a covert, convincing manner that could influence an entire genre of musicians. 8/10" - Decibel
