February 25 2016, 1:00 PM EST By Sarah Force


Being As An Ocean have officially signed with Equal Vision Records, joining the likes of Say Anything, Set It Off, Waterparks and more.

"We are ecstatic to finally get the opportunity to work with the family at Equal Vision Records,” lead vocalist Joel Quartuccio says. “Our relationship has been a long time in the making, and it is like a dream come true to be able to call ourselves part of the team. Ever since we met Dan Sandshaw, EVR's president, we knew that the label's ethos and passion for the music was akin to our own and that we didn't want to settle for anything less. We are eternally grateful to EVR for sticking it out through the years with us to see this beautiful partnership to fruition."

Today, the band kicks off their tour in support of Silverstein in Quebec City, Canada.  Well, they aren’t stopping there. Being As An Ocean have announced a headlining tour with ’68, Capsize, Listener and Movements beginning April 3 in Pontiac, MI.

If that isn’t enough for you, the band teamed up with us to premiere the highly anticipated single “Dissolve.”

"'Dissolve' has been about 3 to 4 months in the making, being written over one of our longest timelines, and we think it is one of our best yet. We, simply, have never had the time to make something this special before, and I think it really shows,” Quartuccio explains of the song.  “In 2016, our listeners and fans should expect a lot of amazing tours, more and more singles, and a band full of best friends excited and ready to make this year one of the best that Being As An Ocean has ever had."

Being As An Ocean is taking over the AltPress Instagram today! Follow @altpress to keep updated on the band's shenanigans. You can find a full list of tour dates below, and don't forget to check out the brand new music video for "Dissolve!"
