After a well deserved time off from our extensive touring in ’22 and early ’23, we’re now slowly preparing to get back on the stages to present our new album ‘Holocene’.

We will play a selected amount of festival shows in August before we head to South Africa for the first time ever (!), followed by a quick visit to support our friends in Ne Obliviscaris in Australia. It’s been over 4 years since we’ve been down under and i’m very excited to set foot once again on this beautiful continent.

This will hopefully warm us up for a full month of co-headline dates with one of my all-time favorite instrumental post-rock bands called This Will Destroy You.

See you at one of the shows! ♥️


After spending almost all of 2019 on the road with The Ocean i flew over to visit my long-time partner in crime Simon Sludge to lock ourselves in and write the Nightmarer follow-up album to “Cacophony of Terror”.

We spent a good 2 1/2 weeks in an intense writing session before i headed back home to Berlin to record drums at one of my favourite places: Daily Hero Recordings! Our buddy Marc, who has been involved in our album recordings since “In Shoals” times was more than happy to tag along and within 3 days all new tracks were tracked and done!

I’m very happy with my choice of gear (cymbals, shells, heads etc.), the tuning, the room and how everything turned out eventually! Intense sessions lead to intense music.

Check out some pictures captured by Emma Kollmorgen below:

Keep your eyes peeled for new music!
Love, Paul


A vital part of enjoying the perks of the musician life is touring, specifically when it comes to playing foreign countries and exploring the various cultures, nature and vibes that come with it.

Even after having played more than 700 shows across the globe and jet-setting from continent to continent there’s still so much more to dive into! This year’s highlights have already included travels to India, Australia, New Zealand and a full-month European tour.

But behold! The Siberian Traps tour taking place between August and October will guide us to some gems hardly anyone has ever been to let alone bands performing a concert. Not only will we traverse the vastness of Russia, we will also find ourselves in countries such as Latvia, Belarus, Armenia, Georgia and Kazakhstan. The icing on the cake will be two shows in Japan!

This will surely be one for the books and an experience that will stay with all of us forever. Here’s the full list of shows:

29/08 – LG, Riga – Melna Piektdiena
