Published Jan 24, 2012Last year, Vancouver popsters Hey Ocean! revealed that their new album, Is, was ready to go, but it's now seven months later and fans are still waiting for a chance to buy a copy. While the wait continues, the band will hit the road in Canada for an extensive tour.
Following a smattering of shows in BC this month, the tour will begin in earnest in late February. The group will be out on the road for a month, in which time they will travel all the way to the East Coast. All told, the band have 25 upcoming shows here in our country. See the schedule below.
