Hey Ocean! Announces Summer Festival Dates: Premieres Zombie-Ridden Video For "Change"

Vancouver-based band Hey Ocean! will bring their dynamic live show back to the States this summer, including a number of dates on the Vans Warped Tour, as well as an appearance at Summerfest, alongside fellow Nettwerk artists Family of the Year (Label and Artist Management) and fun. (Artist Management); all dates are below. The band’s latest video for album track “Change” is set in an alternative world where zombies and humans attempt to coexist peacefully. Watch it above.

The alt/pop trio, who were nominated for 2013 Juno for “Breakthrough Artist Of The Year,” completed their first major tour of the States, including a stop through Austin for SXSW, earlier this year in support of their latest album IS, which Nettwerk released in late January.  

On IS, irresistible hooks entwine with dreamy keyboards and crystal clear guitars. Hey Ocean!--Dave Vertesi [vocals/bass], Ashleigh Ball [vocals/flute], David Beckingham [vocals/guitar]--are three mischievous personalities who, when combined, form a dynamic live presence that keeps concertgoers captivated and on their feet. The band has been building their fervent live following since 2008 with countless tours across their native Canada, sharing the stage with artists like Family of the Year, Cat Empire, Xavier Rudd and Bedouin Soundclash. Their electrifying live show has also wowed audiences at various festivals, including the Calgary Virgin Festival, Saskatoon Jazz Fest, Whistler Arts Festival and the Osheaga Music and Arts Festival.
