Brighton post-hardcorers River Becomes Ocean have revealed details of their debut album! A Motion Paralysed is set for release on January 18, 2019 through Department Musik.
Frontman Marvin McMahon explains of the record; “Although focusing on love and relationships through much of the record’s material, we also approach new subjects like the apathy of Generation Z and a feeling of numbness towards our current political situation. Betrayal, deception, broken hearts and hopelessness are not only central to ‘A Motion Paralysed’ but they’re bleak states of being that can be seen around the globe on a daily basis. A glimpse at the evening news or your social media feed often give a very sinister outlook on what the world has to offer at the moment. Hate crimes, love crimes, war crimes, race crimes, gender crimes. We’re doomed. In times like these, togetherness, tolerance and mutual understanding are more important than ever. River Becomes Ocean hope to stand for the light at the end of tunnel amidst a sea of darkness. We will continue to stick together, as always, and we want our fans and the music community as a whole to be a part of that sense of togetherness.”
The band’s new single Silence Means Nothing features guest vocals from Liam Cormier of Canadian hardcore legends Cancer Bats! Check it out below:
