The Ocean To Tour With Scale The Summit

The Ocean will be returning to North America in 2014 for a co-headline run with Prosthetic Recording artist Scale the Summit and special guests The Atlas Moth and Silver Snakes, presented by Metal Sucks.

The tour kicks off on Wednesday, March 5th in Seattle and wraps up on Sunday, March 30th in Cambridge Mass., including two dates scheduled in Austin, TX for SXSW.

The Ocean's Robin Staps comments: "We're excited to return to the US with our first headline tour since 2008. A lot has happened in the meantime and the band is in a different place now, both musically as well as lineup-wise. We have played some bigger tours which came with a lot of compromises (short set, no production, rushed changeovers), so we are really happy that we're finally gonna be able to offer our Stateside fans and supporters a ‘full’ The Ocean set. We will be playing 'Pelagial' in its entirety most nights, the way it's been written and the way it's been meant to be performed live, as well as some 'Heliocentric', 'Anthropocentric' and 'Precambrian' tunes."
