Fresh from a stadium-filling European tour supporting Muse, We Are the Ocean come to Rugby on Saturday August 3.
The four piece indie/post hardcore band boast several millions of views on Youtube and hundreds of thousands of Facebook fans , and thanks to their songwriting ability have been propelled to the top by Radio 1 and the national press.
After forming in 2007, We Are the Ocean quickly made a name for themselves after signing to UK indie powerhouse Hassle (Alexisonfire, Trash Talk, Cancer Bats) to release their debut self-titled EP, winning a nomination for Best British Newcomer the following year.
Its follow-up, Look Alive was released the following year, and debut full-length Cutting Our Teeth came hot on its heels in early 2010.
It was the emergence of second album Go Now And Live in 2011, though, that cemented the band as a powerhouse-in-waiting of UK rock; packed with colossal choruses, the album enjoyed significant commercial success.
It propelled We Are the Ocean onto Reading and Leeds’ main stage and allowed them to go global, winning prestigious slots on Australia’s Soundwave tour and signing a US deal with the revered SideOneDummy (The Gaslight Anthem, Title Fight).
Support on August 3 will come from epic-rock band Lonely the Brave, featured on Radio 1 and also signed to Hassle Records. Rugby’s popular melodic metal band Go Primitive and rock/electronica band Drop Down Smiling will also be performing.
