Whiskey Tango is an American punk rock band that was formed in Fairbanks, Alaska in 1997.

The Band was formed by guitarist Ian Le Sage and former guitarist William Newman. They were later joined by Bassist Mike Loftus and Drummer Sean Donavan. The current line-up is Ian Le Sage, Mike Loftus, Herman Schmidt, and Sean Donavan.

They started out as friends and became a band. The first show was a birthday party in Alaska circa 1998.

In 2006 they played live on KGRG 89.9 fm’s Punk 101 hosted by Plaid Lad and Lauren The Living Dead Girl.

All of their albums, except for one, have been self engineered, recorded, and mixed. The most money spent on any one album was $700.

In May 2008 the band decided to take an indefinite hiatus to work on other projects.

In November 2010, Whiskey Tango took their first International Tour to Japan. They toured with the band Pink-HOUSE. They have also been back to their hometown of Fairbanks, AK to play at the local university, UAF.

They currently are writing new material for an upcoming second full length record due to come out in 2012.
