Earlier this month, prominent melodic hardcore act Being As An Ocean announced that their fourth full length studio album will be released on June 9th, 2017. The upcoming album, titled “Waiting For Morning To Come, will be their latest record since their 2015 self titled full length and will also be their first album released through Equal Vision Records. The California based act has seen a significant increase in their fan base since their latest release and it is safe to say that this forthcoming record will be one of the most anticipated records in the first half of 2017.
Personally, I believe that BAAO’s self titled album is their worst release to date. Their absolutely legendary debut album, “Dear G-d”, and their great sophomore record, “How We Both Wondrously Perish”, completely outperform their third full length album and as a result, Being As An Ocean’s self titled record was very disappointing. There is one thing, however, that is keeping my anticipation for this new material from BAAO very high and that is the fact that the two singles the band has released in 2016 have been unfathomably phenomenal. The two singles, “Dissolve” and “Ok”, feature a perfect mix between the classic, original Being As An Ocean sound, and the more alternative rock influenced new sound that has emerged in the last few years. With a combination of melodic guitar and bass riffs with background, ambient sounding synths and other instruments, Being As An Ocean has been able to completely redeem themselves from what they released in 2015. If these two singles are featured on “Waiting For Morning To Come”, or if this new album sounds anything like these two new singles, I can absolutely say that this fourth studio album will easily exceed the expectations established after the last release.
Singles and merchandise bundles will definitely be released early next year, and the minute they do, we’ll be the first ones to share it with you.
