"The End of the Ocean is Kevin ShannonTrish ChisholmBryan YostTara Yost, and Robby Stillings.

The End Of The Ocean is an instrumental post-rock band from Columbus, Ohio. From their start in early 2009, The End Of The Ocean has had a penchant for crafting soundtrack-esque athems that move freely from beautiful to trippy to heart-tugging to fist clenching. Heavily influenced by mid 90′s emo and shoegaze (My Bloody Valentine, Mineral, The Appleseed Cast, American Football, Planes Mistaken for Stars), and their post-rock contemporaries (Mono, Envy, Explosions In The Sky), The End Of The Ocean utilizes intricate drumming, subtle guitar arpeggios, and a vast range of effects to craft beautiful, nostalgic and refreshingly unique memorable songs.

The End Of The Ocean has continually expanded its horizons from playing local shows to touring all across the United States. Theyíve been fortunate enough to share the stage with Alcest, If These Trees Could Talk, Pianos Become The Teeth, Touche Amore, Code Orange Kids, Mouth of The Architect, Title Fight, Defeater, OíBrother, Junius and The Ascent Of Everest.

The End Of The Ocean self-released their first album, a 4 song EP entitled Calm Seas Donít Make Sailors, on October 1st, 2009. The album was unexpectedly downloaded over 2,000 times in the first week of its release and received stellar praise from many reviews both in the US and abroad.

The bandís second album, PACIFICēATLANTIC, was released by futurerecordings (Indian Summer, The Ascent Of Everest, Sunlight Ascending) on March 1st, 2011 and made tidal waves in the post-rock community. Pacific∑Atlantic was included in the prestigious list of top 100 albums of 2011 by The Silent Ballet, voted into the top 20 releases of 2011 by Post-Rock Listeners Choice, and chosen as the #6 best album of 2011 by the internet radio show Progopolis.

On June 29th, 2012, The End Of The Ocean released their third album, In Excelsis, (futurerecordings) and embarked on a five week cross-country tour in support of the album.

With three albums and multiple tours under their belt, The End Of The Ocean is currently writing new material and preparing for an even more extensive touring schedule in 2013.

With a wall of sound and an aggressive live show, listeners canít help to be caught up in the bandís maelstrom of nostalgia, hope, beauty, melancholy, chaos and tranquility. Itís how The End Of The Ocean creates this ebb and flow of emotions that makes this band a monumental experience.

More information can be found at their offical website, www.theendoftheocean.com."

This will probably be one of the easiest decisions ever made by the post-rock team...
