WE LOST THE SEA 2016 Australian Tour at Hotel Gearin
+ Special Guests Dumbsaint & Sonori
After a hugely successful debut Blue Mountains performance in 2015 we are very pleased to welcome back We Lost The Sea to perform at the Hotel Gearin for their 2016 Australian tour.
We Lost The Sea are embarking on their first-ever headlined Australian tour.
Performing across Australia for the past 8 years, supporting the likes of This Will Destroy You (US), Rosetta (US), Mono (JPN) and The Red Paintings, We Lost The Sea have elevated their live shows to new heights, so it is only fair to give the people what they want.
We Lost The Sea came together in 2007, to create a new collection of noise that gathers relentless crushing guitars together with post-rock atmospherics and melody.
Their debut release Crimea and 2012’s critically acclaimed sophomore album The Quietest Place on Earth established We Lost The Sea as a force to be reckoned with; making end of year lists both locally and internationally while also being given the title of “best Australian performance of the year” by Lochlan Watt of Triple J’s The Racket in 2013.
We Lost At Sea’s most recent and third full length album, Departure Songs, released in 2015 was written during a time of rare and uneasy rest, devoid of the constant adrenaline of performing live and the heartbreaking loss of their lead singer and best friend, Chris Torpy. This time offered a new space for We Lost The Sea to reflect on all these previous experiences and cradle them, while cultivating a new album in an unfamiliar environment – the most experimental and emotional, by far. Inspired by failed, yet epic journeys and events, each track in Departure Songs has it’s own story and is a soundtrack to that story. The group’s sense of rediscovery as a creative whole is tangible throughout.
We Lost The Sea teach us that you don’t have to be afraid of the past to move bravely into the future and with this, announce their first ever headlined Australian tour.
“This is a band that knows the art of subtlety; a band that, even in the most raucous moments of their music, remain cautious and attentive to the sounds they’re respectively creating” – The Music
“We Lost the Sea’s standout feature is the sheer momentum behind each of their songs, each totally sweeping me away” – The AU Review
“The compositions are thoughtful, the performances faultless” – This Is Not A Scene
