Main Stage

We Are the Ocean are a 5 piece post-hardcore band[1] from London, England. The band have played hundreds of shows since their formation, including countless festivals during 2008 such as Slam Dunk, Offset Festival, Middlesbrough Music Live, and even opened for The Used at Taste Of Chaos. They have supported bands such as You Me At Six, The Blackout, Fightstar, Funeral For A Friend and My American Heart, as well as playing alongside From First To Last, The Medic Droid, Brigade, Saving Aimee, Tonight Is Goodbye and Furthest Drive Home. They are performing a headline tour in January and February 2009. The band embarked on a 24 show headline tour in Jan 2009 selling out most venues.

The band was originaly known as Dead But Still Dreaming with Dan Brown and four others. Jack Spence joined after the band lost their original bassist. After a while the band broke apart, but Dan and Jack carried on searching for new members during this time. They had formed a full line-up again by 2007 with Liam Cromby and Tom Whittaker, and still under the original name of Dead But Still Dreaming. After a while, the band lost their lead guitarist who was eventually replaced by Alfie Scully. Shortly after the creation of this solid band line-up, the band's name was changed to We Are The Ocean. The band quickly shot to prominence thanks mainly to myspace and were nominated for Kerrang! Best British Newcomer and voted K!Readers Poll 2nd best unsigned UK band. They released their debut EP in 2008 selling all 1000copies in 1 day.
