Despite it being one of the best touring lineups I’ve seen that year, I couldn’t make it out to Summer Slaughter 2013. Massive disappointment on my part, but I had just started a new job so taking time off was not an option. The band I was most looking forward to seeing was The Ocean, who had just released my album of the year, Pelagial.

Fortunately, they’re coming back shortly, but in the mean time, I can make up for the lost experience through multi-cam live footage of what I assume is most of their setlist in ‘Bathyalpelagic‘ and ‘Demersal,’ the latter of which features Thy Art Is Murder vocalist Chris McMahon!



If that doesn’t convince you to not miss out on their upcoming co-headlining North American tour with Scale the Summit, then I don’t know what will. Here are the dates, featuring support from The Atlas Moth and Silver Snakes:
