The Ocean will be touring in support of their recent split EP Transcendental with Japanese post-rock legend Mono, as well as in support of their critically acclaimed last album, Pelagial (2013), which was hailed as the group's "most ambitious record to date" (HeavyBlogIsHeavy.com). Over the course of the crushingly massive record, "tender piano interludes get stomped on by Mastodon-shaped footprints, lush strings work next to bulldozing double-kick work, and, at the end, the submarine crashes at Melvins tempos" (Spin.com).
