The classic tale of musical romance continues for Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland, the husband and wife duo behind Whitehorse.

The Fate of the World Depends on This Kiss is everything the talented pairs first full length promised. As a whole, the album reveals the expanding range of creative possibility as Whitehorse develops and focuses their sound. Song by song, the record takes surprising turns; while each track bears Whitehorses signature blistering guitar work and love-knotted vocals, their willingness to take risks while staying true to themselves makes for captivating listening.

From the opening track, the psychedelic-meets-Spaghetti Western scorch of Achilles Desire to the sunset-on-water acoustic sparkler Mismatched Eyes (Boat Song), the Archies-esque Out Like A Lion, (sweetened with a dash of "Sugar, Sugar"), and the pulp influenced suspense of "Devils Got A Gun, the album covers impressive ground without compromising its artistic coherence.

Whitehorses live show is built on mesmerizing guitar work and smoldering vocal chemistry, but also brings much more to the stage with complex layers of percussion, keyboard and telephone receiver amplification, tangled like an embrace with the help of looping pedals. Their sold out Winter Garden Theatre show in February, 2012 signaled their unquestionable arrival as a band. Whitehorse returns in ambitious fashion with a date at Massey Hall in 2013.

With savage talent and tender hearts, Whitehorse releases "Leave No Bridge Unburned" on February 17, 2015.
