Ocean Grove "Another Place to Stay"

Ocean Grove, an alternative rock band that got together after being a part of backing bands for some big acts, is releasing their new EP, Another Place to Stay, on June 21, 2011. In support of the release, the band will go on tour with He Is We.

In the press release announcing the release of the EP and their 2011 tour, the group offered this explanation as to the band’s origins:

“After touring the globe and enjoying some of the greatest times of their lives, John Taylor (vocals/guitar), Ryan Liestman (keys/backing vocals), Greg Garbowsky (bass/backing vocals), Jack Lawless (drums) decided it was time to start their own project, one that would see them develop a truly unique rock n’ roll sound – Ocean Grove.

There, the band shacked up in a beautiful Victorian home near the ocean to focus on a real and more rock n’ roll sound. After recording 14 songs in two weeks, Ocean Grove finally felt they had come into their own. The EP, Another Place to Stay, mixed by Paul Hager (Van Halen, Goo Goo Dolls, American Hi-Fi) and mastered by renowned recording studio, Sterling Sound (Adele, Green Day) is an EP filled with feel good songs pulling from their greatest influences such as The Beach Boys, Tom Petty, and Weezer. The inspiration for the EP came from years of experiences and all the little things life throws our way.”

The band is proud of all their past accomplishments like having played with acts such as Stevie Wonder, Brad Paisely, Vince Gill and performing on over 50 television shows, but Ocean Grove is ready to continue something truly special and all their own, just like their bond as a band. With their new EP, and positive outlook on all that’s to come, they are ready for just about anything.”
