The Ocean Guitarist Robin Staps Issues Band Update

The Ocean guitarist and main songwriter Robin Staps has posted the following band update online:

"Thanks to everyone who came out to see us during our recent European tours supporting The Dillinger Escape Plan and then Anathema. We've had an amazing time with both bands and would like to thank them for inviting us to join them.

"It was a great honor and fun to share the stage with The Dillinger Escape Plan. I have been a fan of this band for more than 10 years and had a blast watching them destroy every single stage they got to, 33 nights in a row. We've all become good friends over those five weeks, Loic had been guesting with them on the song 'Sunshine, The Werewolf' for the last 10 shows or so, and Ben Weinman joined us on piano for 'The First Commandment Of The Luminaries' in return. It was awesome, there is some YouTube footage up there if you care...

"The Anathema tour was equally amazing and came as a big surprise, as we didn't really know what to expect from this tour. We were overwhelmed by the positive feedback we received everywhere from Anathema's fans, as well as our own of course. We were the heavy band on this tour but it seems that the diversity of the bill was exactly what made it interesting for most people: the amazing Petter Carlssen opening up with an acoustic set, us following up with doom and destruction and then Anathema playing an epic two-plus-hour set most nights."
