Days after revealing their drummer bounced, The Ocean have announced the addition of new drummer Paul Seidel.
His name may be familiar to fans of War From A Harlots Mouth.
That still leaves one opening in the band.
The group issued the following statement: “A divorce usually hurts, but it always also opens up new horizons. We are happy to announce that Paul Seidel will be the new drummer in The Ocean.
“Paul is currently playing in War From A Harlot’s Mouth, who are going on indefinite hiatus at the end of the year, as well as in Dioramic and Wassbass. He also gives drum lessons in Berlin and knows from the experience with his own bands what it’s like to tour America, Europe and Australia.”
Comments Paul Seidel: “I’m very pleased to officially announce, that I’ll be joining forces with The Ocean. I am glad, both musically and on a personal scale, to walk new paths and broaden my horizon. My personal approach has always been to overcome genre boundaries as well as stereotypes, to swim against the current and to play or enjoy music apart from conventional habits.
“The Ocean have ever since implemented a conceptual urge in the context of progressive music and have never been afraid to dare to experiment.”
So there’s that.
