Known for their energetic live shows, We Are the Ocean are a British five-piece influenced by the post-hardcore sounds of Refused, Hot Water Music, and Rise Against. The London/Essex-based band, vocalist Dan Brown, guitarists Liam Cromby, and Alfie Scully, bassist Jack Spence, and drummer Tom Whittaker, formed in 2007 from the remnants of another rock outfit, Dead But Still Dreaming. After changing their name, they utilized social networking sites to build up a loyal following, which resulted in a nomination for Best British Newcomer at the Kerrang Awards before they had even put out a record. In 2008, they released their self-titled debut EP and began touring various festivals including New Jersey's The Bamboozle, and Donington Park's Download, before traveling to Baltimore to work with producer Brian McTernan (Thrice) on their debut album, Cutting Our Teeth. Following support slots with You Me at Six, Funeral for a Friend, and Lostprophets, it was released in 2010 through Hassle Records, with their second album, provisionally titled Go Now and Live, scheduled for 2011. ~ Jon O'BrienPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
