THE OCEAN Prepares For Co-Headlining Tour With Scale The Summit; Live Video From The Summer Slaughter Tour 2013 Posted

In just over a month, THE OCEAN will be returning to North America for the first time since last year’s The Summer Slaughter takeover. Sponsored by MetalSucks, the journey will commence on March 5th in Seattle, include two performances in Austin, Texas at SXSW and finds the band co-headlining with Prosthetic Recording artists Scale the Summit. Additional support will be provided by special guests The Atlas Moth and Silver Snakes.

The tour welcomes new THE OCEAN recruits, drummer Paul Seidel and guitarist Damian Murdoch, who replace Luc Hess and Jona Nido, both of whom departed the band on mutual terms late last year. Two live videos have been made available from The Summer Slaughter Tour stop at the Rave in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Fans can watch “Demersal: Cognitive Dissonance” (featuring guest vocals from CJ of Thy Art is Murder) below.

Comments THE OCEAN founding guitarist Robin Staps: “Summer Slaughter was the final US tour for Luc and Jona. These clips bring back good memories of our last Summer together and a lot of crazy parties in parking lots across the country. Now I’m really looking forward to getting back to the US with our new guys. We’ve started rehearsing for our upcoming tours this week, and there’s a really good vibe in the room. We’re hungry to get out again, we’ve only been home for two months now but it already feels too long.”
