The Ocean

The Ocean released their latest LP Heliocentric last year, and will head out on tour in April of this year. They play a rare show in NYC, their first since touring with Kylesa, Withered, and Lair of The Minotaur in 2008, at Public Assembly on April 13th with East of The Wall & Flourishing .

The NYC date is one of three headlining dates for the band before they head out on tour with Job For A Cowboy, Between The Buried & Me & Cephalic Carnage. That trek begins at Crazy Donkey in Farmingdale, NY on 4/15 (tickets), and swings through New England Metal & Hardcore Fest on 4/16. There the band will share a bill their old tour-mates Withered, who will loop back to NYC on on their tour with Krallice, Ipsissimus, & Cleric.
