Being As An Ocean
Californian melodic hardcore crew Being As An Ocean will return to Australia in May for their first headlining tour of the country since 2013, and in tow will be Perth band Saviour and Melbourne’s Void Of Vision.
The San Diego, CA based outfit return to perform shows of their own in Brisbane, Sydney, Newcastle, Canberra, Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth. The shows will deliver the rich musical journeys spanning across their three full-lengths, the latest of which – a self-titled album released in July 2015 – as well as their newest single “Dissolve” released in February 2016 which shows a more hook-driven direction for the band whilst still incorporating their signature sound of sophisticated storytelling woven over lush, ambient soundscapes. Add to that the unique juxtaposition of Joel Quartuccio’s gritty, impassioned vocal work and Michael McGough’s gracefully soaring vocals creating a distinct blend that is both captivating and cathartic.
“If music’s most important property is the connectivity that’s made between who’s playing it and who’s listening to it, then Being As An Ocean already won the war because the levels of passion instigated by the ferocious, frustrated, loving, and hopeful sounds and message set down by the American band were fantastically embraced by the public” – Music & Riots Magazine
