THE OCEAN announce one-off London show to premiere new album material

THE OCEAN will be returning to the UK for an exclusive show at The Borderline in London on Sunday 14th April 2013.

The band will perform a full headline set of songs from their new album on Metal Blade along with older material from the likes of 2010’s double release ‘Heliocentric’/ ‘Anthropocentric’. The Ocean, described by Rock Sound as “mind-blowing metal on a Wagnerian scale” have previously toured with the likes of Opeth, Dillinger Escape Plan and Anathema; they were last seen in the UK undertaking epic performances at Damnation Festival and their co-headline tour with Textures.

To make the most of the weekend the band will be joined by some of the UK’s finest progressive metal and hardcore: special guests BOSSK will play main support as they continue their return to the stage; hotly tipped newcomers EMPRESS will follow up their tour with Cancer Bats; post-hardcore trio SHAPES will air new material having only sporadically played live since their last album. As if that wasn’t enough, The Ocean will bring Australia’s LO! into the UK for a very rare show and their label Pelagic will be present with their distro along with those from some UK independents.

THE OCEAN + Bossk + Empress + Shapes + Lo!
