After the success of 2012’s ‘Maybe Today, Maybe Tomorrow,’ which saw We Are The Ocean storming the BBC Radio 1 playlist, with an addition to the A list for their track ‘Young Heart’, the Essex quartet now prepare to release new music and announce their first full UK headline tour since they brought a UK run to a stunning climax at London’s Koko 14 months ago.

With a release date to coincide with their UK tour, We Are The Ocean will return to Middle Farm Studios to record a brand new EP with Peter Miles (Blitz Kids, Dry The River) who produced their previous two records, ‘Maybe Today, Maybe Tomorrow’ and ‘Go Now and Live.’ WATO will look to build on their new course seen with the release of ‘MT,MT.’ Of the new material Liam Cromby, guitarist and lead singer had to say “We wanted to step out of our normal boundaries of imagination with these new tracks, I think we’ve surprised ourselves and will surprise our fans  with what we’ve come up with.”

Tickets for shows go on sale this Friday 11th April 2014, and will see WATO showcase new music alongside the raft of hits from their previous three albums. Alfie Scully, lead guitarist, says of the announcement “We’re so excited to announce that we’re heading out on the road again, touring has always been a huge part of what we’re about as a band. We always aim to make every one of our shows something to be remembered and this tour will be no exception to that”

With Jack Spence bassist adding, “Not playing a show for over half a year is a curse I would not wish on any musician, and we are chomping at the bit to get back on the touring circuit doing what we love, and making the most of every second on stage.”
