The Ocean & Scale The Summit Pair Up For 2014 “MMM” Tour

So you say you like The Ocean and you mean the band and not the cooling calming surf of vacations spots everywhere AND you also like Scale The Summit, we;; my fiends do I have a tour announcement for your because both of those bands are headed out on a run that will span the entire month of March. Talk about getting your March Metal Madness planned early (that’s why I did the “MMM” in the subject in case you wondered). More from their official Press Type Resources after the poster.

Official Press Proclamations:
“In just over a month, THE OCEAN will be returning to North America for the first time since last year’s Summer Slaughter takeover. Sponsored by MetalSucks, the journey will commence on March 5th in Seattle, include two performances in Austin, Texas at SXSW and finds the band co-headlining with Prosthetic Recording artists Scale the Summit. Additional support will be provided by special guests The Atlas Moth and Silver Snakes. The tour welcomes new THE OCEAN recruits, drummer Paul Seidel and guitarist Damian Murdoch, who replace Luc Hess and Jona Nido, both of whom departed the band on mutual terms late last year. Comments THE OCEAN founding guitarist Robin Staps: “Summer Slaughter was the final US tour for Luc and Jona. These clips bring back good memories of our last Summer together and a lot of crazy parties in parking lots across the country. Now I’m really looking forward to getting back to the US with our new guys. We’ve started rehearsing for our upcoming tours this week, and there’s a really good vibe in the room. We’re hungry to get out again, we’ve only been home for two months now but it already feels too long.”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ll admit that I have never really followed any of the bands on this package over the years but I have listened to “Pelagial” by The Ocean and really like its interesting presentation. There is a little of everything on the release and I expect it to be a cool album to hear in the live sense. Having a little more background in Scale The Summit I can say that fans of the Progressive Metal side of things should definitely look into their set at least. I’m going to try my best to be a part of the tour when it hits my local region on one of March’s final days. What about you fans? Does this tour package interest you at all?
