The End Of The Ocean is an instrumental post-rock band from Columbus, Ohio. From their start in early 2009, The End Of The Ocean has had a penchant for crafting soundtrack-esque athems that move freely from beautiful to trippy to heart-tugging to fist clenching. Heavily influenced by mid 90’s emo and their post-rock contemporaries, The End Of The Ocean utilizes intricate drumming, subtle guitar arpeggios, and a vast range of effects to craft beautiful, nostalgic and refreshingly unique memorable songs.
The End Of The Ocean has been fortunate enough to share the stage with Alcest, The Appleseed Cast, Caspian, Mono, Year Of No Light, If These Trees Could Talk, Pianos Become The Teeth, Touche Amore, Code Orange, Gates, Mouth of The Architect, Title Fight, Defeater, O’Brother, and many more.
The band has released 3 albums which have all made tidal waves in the post-rock community and has been included in the prestigious list of top 100 albums of 2011 by The Silent Ballet.
With three albums and multiple tours under their belt, The End Of The Ocean is currently writing a new full length album set to be released in late 2016 and preparing for their second international tour.
The End Of The Ocean brings forth a wall of sound and an aggressive live show. Listeners can’t help to be caught up in the band’s maelstrom of nostalgia, hope, beauty, melancholy, chaos and tranquility. It’s how The End Of The Ocean creates this ebb and flow of emotions that makes this band a monumental experience.
