THE OCEAN Announces Co-Headlining U.S. Dates With SCALE THE SUMMIT

Tuesday, 14th January 2014

THE OCEAN will be returning to North America in 2014 for a co-headline run with SCALE THE SUMMIT and special guests THE ATLAS MOTH and SILVER SNAKES.

The tour kicks off on Wednesday, March 5 in Seattle Washington and wraps up on Sunday, March 30 in Cambridge Mass., including two dates scheduled in Austin, TX for SXSW.

Guitarist, founding member, and main brain behind THE OCEAN, Robin Staps comments: “We’re excited to return to the US with our first headline tour since 2008. A lot has happened in the meantime and the band is in a different place now, both musically as well as lineup-wise. We have played some bigger tours which came with a lot of compromises (short set, no production, rushed changeovers), so we are really happy that we’re finally gonna be able to offer our Stateside fans and supporters a ‘full’ The Ocean set. We will be playing Pelagial in its entirety most nights, the way it’s been written and the way it’s been meant to be performed live, as well as some Heliocentric, Anthropocentric and Precambrian tunes.”
