This tour-sponsoring malarkey is great. We have favourite bands, we ring up the label, agent, manager and they let us put our name to a set of dates (not to mention this time around putting together a damn fine London Alldayer bill!). Already this year we've bigged-up and been a part of the rawk of Reuben, Kinesis and Biffy Clyro; and now we bring you the UK's finest ethereal art-rock grafters, from Manchester, signed to Beggars Banquet, OCEANSIZE!
The tour is in support of their new EP 'One Day All This Could Be Yours' (5th May on CD and 10" Vinyl) by the band that Rolling Stone described as "triple-guitar paradise" at 2002's South by Southwest festival. They continued "'Relapse' is an EP-size bite of their heavy golden drone, the nine-minute title track affirms everything that knocked me out that night. While everyone else is going back to the garage, Oceansize are headed for the outer limits.".
