My brother's band was recently sued by another band with the same name here in the U.S. who claimed there name was legally registered, citing copyright infringement. Different story. If you and the other band are in the same country I would see legal help. If not you should be ok. Worst case is you keep the Whale name, and recevie a Cease and Desist lette rfrom the other band's lawyer (doubt that would happen though) and your band changes it's name.
This seems to make sense.

But I think it would be better if you changed your name to, "Whaleasouraus"
