Ambient post-hardcore band Being As An Ocean are giving fans a deeper look at upcoming album, ‘Proxy: An A.N.I.M.O. Story,’ with the release of second track “Find Our Way”. The band’s musical evolution continues on the upcoming 5th album, with “Find Our Way” occupying a strangely effective and catchy space between newer Bring Me The Horizon (think That’s The Spirit and Amo), big, catchy post-hardcore, and even the mainstream bent of the more electronic side of Linkin Park. In other words, Being As An Ocean are marking their new album as one that is made for much bigger stages.
Southern California’s own Being As An Ocean have released much-anticipated new single “Play Pretend”, and its cinematic sci-fi companion video/short film, which is certainly worth the price of admission alone. The anthemic “Play Pretend” is the first track from the band’s upcoming album, ‘Proxy: An A.N.I.M.O. Story,’ which was recorded with Grammy-nominated producer and collaborator Zakk Cervini (Blink-182, Halsey). The band has also announced a fall USA headlining tour ahead of the record, where they’ll be joined by De’Wayne Jackson and Cardiff’s Holding Absence.
Earlier today, Tyler William Ross of Being As An Ocean tweeted “Just drained my E*Trade account to buy my own album. Welcome to 2017, the rules are changing.”. The long delayed release of the band’s 4th album, Waiting For Morning To Come, was supposed to happen 2 months ago – but never did. At least not yet.
