WE ARE THE OCEAN TO RELEASE NEW STUDIO ALBUM SEPTEMBER 18th, 2012. DEBUT VIDEO FOR FIRST SINGLE “THE ROAD”
We Are The Ocean are back bursting through the floodgates with a new line-up, a focused direction, and an album that aims to set a new standard in the quality of rock music. Maybe Today, Maybe Tomorrow will be the third full-length release of the band, and it’s clear that no stone has been left unturned in the creation of this rock gem.
"This is how we’ve wanted to sound for years," states guitarist / vocalist, Alfie Scully.
What’s most impressive about the ten tracks that comprise ‘Maybe Today, Maybe Tomorrow,’ is that they constitute an entirely new beginning for the Essex four-piece, while both paying lip-service to their roots and signaling a bright new future. This is the sound of a young band taking some gigantic risks, and hearing them pay off.
On the topic of gigantic risks, there was no greater gamble for frontman Liam Cromby, bassist Jack Spence, drummer Tom Whittaker and Scully than to part ways with their former singer, Dan Brown, in June. Having recorded the majority of the record with producer Peter Miles (The King Blues, Dry The River, Canterbury), the remaining members of the band felt something was wrong, and decided to move forward as a quartet otherwise they wouldn’t be doing their new songs justice. “It was to do with our personal happiness,” explains Cromby. “When making this decision, we said if this divebombs then it divebombs, but we’ll be happier for it. We didn’t think of it as a brave step. We didn’t care what anyone else thought because we knew it was the best thing for us.”
The difference that the change of line up made is is immediately apparent on Maybe Today, Maybe Tomorrow. The level musicianship, technical ability, and textural understanding partnered with frontman Liam Cromby’s voice at the center, shows the world that rock music is not dying, but rather very much alive. It’s kicking and being screamed out loud from the collective lungs of We Are The Ocean.
The band’s video their first U.S. single, “The Road,” can be seen via Vevo here and the track can be downloaded via iTunes.
Maybe Today, Maybe Tomorrow will be available via SideOneDummy Records 9.18.12.

"In the last five years that I’ve had the opportunity of being on The Revival Tour, it’s been nothing but an invigorating breath of fresh air amongst the sea of live music out there today,” explains Americana singer/songwriter Chuck Ragan about the musical and cultural collaborative phenomenon that he helped create. “The revolving showcase of real music by real people in a simple grassroots fashion seems it originated in the old days from families and communities sharing music together, this is the simple ethic in live music events that we aim to revive.” The UK and European edition this Fall kicks off with a multi-national collection of amazing storytellers in Ragan, American singer/songwriter Cory Branan (who played on this past Spring’s US edition), Western Australia’s Emily Barker, Canada’s Jay Malinowski from reggae band Bedouin Soundclash and Texan Rocky Votolato.
