The band gained a dedicated world-wide fanbase and early critical acclaim with their 2014 debut ‘The World Around me’ an its follow up EP ‘December’, released in 2016.
The Brighton quartet have also collaborated with Canadian post hardcore veteran Shane Told of Silverstein on the emotional and hard hitting track ‘What If I Stay’. This became a huge success for the band and saw the video picked up for full circulation by MTV & VH1.
Their latest release, debut album ‘A Motion Paralysed’ has already had a huge response around the globe, reaching over 500,000 streams within the first weeks of its release in January 2019.
The album sees River Becomes Ocean combining new genres with poppy influences and some of the heaviest material written to date, whilst still staying true to their cinematic sound. They have continued to add to their impressive collection of collaborations, with Cancer Bats’ own Liam Cormier featuring on the lead single ‘Silence Means Nothing’. It made big waves in the scene and has featured on Daniel P. Carter’s BBC Radio 1 Rock Show.
