Brighton’s own RIVER BECOMES OCEAN have announced they’ll be release a debut album ‘A Motion Paralysed’ arriving 18th January 2019 via Department Musik

The post-hardcore four-piece already buckled down some banging EP, but now they’re set for a full length album and have already given fans a sneak preview with their latest single ‘Silence Means Nothing (FT Liam Cormier)” You can listen to that here:

Speaking about the new album, vocalist Marvin McMahon said “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,” continues McMahon, with a grimace.

“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.”
