Wapiti has announced Toronto’s hottest buzz band, Inlet Sound, has joined the 2013 line up.

Inlet Sound has been climbing the indie charts since the release of their debut album “The Romantics” this past October. Inlet Sound is the musical convergence of passionate folk-rock spirit and atmospheric pop form. The band has spent the greater part of 2012 tirelessly crafting The Romantics, their first full-length record, in lofty cabins and expansive churches.

Since its humble beginnings in 2009 as a two-piece folk-pop collaboration between Wexler and Hardy, Inlet Sound has gone through both physical and sonic transformations: a coming-of-age that mirrors what The Romantics has come to represent. Members have come and gone and musical ideas have taken shape around the personal experiences from which the band has grown and matured.

Inlet Sound brings a colourful addition to Wapiti and another band travelling across Canada to play right here in Fernie.

The Wapiti Music Festival runs two days, Friday August 9 and Saturday 10. Tickets are now on sale. Advance prices are in effect in limited quantities.

Inlet Sound joins fellow Canadian rockers on the CBC Stage: Plants and Animals, Current Swell, Loon Choir, No Sinner and many more.
