Not long now until those warped Melbournians Ocean Grove ask audiences around Australia the most essential question: Are you a Lights On Kind Of Lover? Kicking off on September 30, Ocean Grove will invade Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane with their mates Reactions and a whole host of local talent in each city to get the party started.

Having impressed every audience they’ve been thrust in front of over the past twelve months, it wasOcean Grove recent, head-turning performance on the mammoth Equinox tour – where they joinedNorthlane, In Hearts Wake and Hands Like Houses – that has truly marked their arrival at a national level, with the Music stating, “A genre unto themselves, the band seemed to exude everything that was great about the ‘90s. Boasting discordance at all of the right moments, nu-metal rap and the modern breakdown flair, they were difficult to ignore. The vast combinations of styles worked in their favour, with the crowd kept engaged in an electric, youthful kind of energy.”

Main tour support Reactions may be an unfamiliar name to some, but for those more entrenched in the hardcore community, the five-piece is one of the more hard working and unique acts to have spawned from the city of churches this decade, with a live show that can rival many of their more heavily fancied, international counterparts. See details below for all local supports in each city.
