Comments THE OCEAN’s Robin Staps: “We’re stoked to announce more European live dates this fall, and we are more than happy to have these great bands on board as supports!”
“Philadelphia’s Rosetta have been around almost as long as us, and have released 6 amazing albums over the years. We had them out with us for our Precambrian 10th anniversary tour earlier this year, and just felt that run was too short to leave it at that. We’re super happy to have them on board again, and to dive into their eclectic sound between post rock and metal every night!”
“I have a love for (especially 90’s) noise rock, but Norway’s Årabrot are much more than that: a band with an interesting story, a long history and a truly charismatic sound that is quite different from both THE OCEAN and ROSETTA, which is precisely why we wanted to have them on this tour.”
“The Ocean and LLNN share a love for apocalyptic synths, which define and color their relentlessly heavy and modern sound. Synths and metal are a tricky combination, one that is not easily mastered… LLNN is dystopian, contemporary heavy music at its best.”
“When we entered the main stage tent at last year’s Dunk! festival at about 3 in the afternoon, there was an instrumental band playing a long meditative part.. but this band was different from they typical post rock fare. They would soon burst into one of the heaviest riffs I have ever heard in my life, all of a sudden, completely unexpected. Briqueville are a truly heavy instrumental metal band, and they put on a great conceptual live show.”
