The Ocean found themselves in a pickle in early September. They were supposed open on a major tour that was going to run in October and November. However, those plans fell through and left the European band (who already booked their flights to the U.S.) with limited options. Luckily, though, they were able to hop on the road with The Devin Townsend Project. As fortunate as that was for them, the tour comes to an end tomorrow night (October 29) in Vancouver, BC, and the band isn’t heading home to Berlin, Germany until the end of November.

Thus, The Ocean are scrambling to book headlining dates for the upcoming weeks. Here’s what they’ve booked so far:

10/31 Boise, ID @ The Shredder TBC

11/1 Ogden, UT @ Mojo’s (+ White Arms of Athena)

11/2 Denver, CO @ Casselman’s

11/3 Omaha, NE @ 5810 Grover St (house show)

11/4 Saint Paul, MN @ Station 4

11/5 Indianapolis, IN @ Indy’s Jukebox (note: venue upgrade)

11/7 Pittsburgh, PA @ Mr Roboto Project

11/10 CAN – Toronto, ONT @ Wreckroom (+ Cynic, 3, Scale The Summit)


And now they need your help! They are still looking for shows on the following dates:


11/8 DC area OR Buffalo OR Syracuse OR NYC / NJ

11/9 Buffalo OR Syracuse

11/11 NYC, Buffalo OR Syracuse

11/12 CT / RI / MA / NH

The Ocean have said that they’re willing to play pretty much anywhere. If you have a gig offering or can hook the band up with a show on the available dates, email them at Keep an eye out on The Ocean’s Facebook page for updates on booked shows.
