UK ROCK UPSTARTS OCASAN ANNOUNCE SOUTHERN ONTARIO TOUR DATES

BAND TO PERFORM AT NXNE FESTIVAL



Stereo Dynamite Recordings are pleased to announce that Northampton, UK's finest three-piece rock/pop band Ocasan will make their live Canadian debut this Friday (June 8) when they arrive ahead of their performance at this year's NXNE Festival.

The band will be supporting the Stereo Dynamite Recordings release of their debut album, the 10 track "Ricochet." Produced by Romesh Dodangoda (Manic Street Preachers, Lostprophets, Bullet For My Valentine, Attack Attack), the album showcases the band's ability to marry a quintessentially British sound with the ferocity of American rock. The songs shift musical gears effortlessly, and recall the best songwriting of Blur, Supergrass, and The Manics, all the while maintaining the drive and power of the Foo Fighters; clearly demonstrating a truly unique talent.

"They set out to write fantastic songs that had you hooked from the first beat to the last chord and we think they've done just that!"
- KERRANG!

"Ocasan write insanely catchy pop/rock songs and are an exceptional live band to boot. Go and watch them and find out for yourself"
- ROCKSOUND

"We wanted the world to pay attention to this one. The first album, we all agreed, had to be big, loud, well crafted and really in-your-face! We completed what we set out to do and are very proud of it." says bassist Rich Webb. "We poured our souls into this first album. It's a huge sounding record bursting with energy." continues drummer Luke Mcdonnell (who along with singer/guitarist Nick Burns complete the band line-up).

The album's first video 'No One's Safe In Soho' has been added to MuchLOUD, and is also available online: http://youtu.be/VTRHSmLZcuo

"Having never toured Canada we've been overwhelmed with the response from Canadian fans." says Luke. "Our managers at 'Riot Rock' have been eager for us to play NXNE since we met last year and we've heard great things. We can't wait to get over there!"
