Background:

Founded in Alpine circa 2011, Being As An Ocean stared off under the name Vanguard, playing Christian heavy metal. After a name change, they became a more melodic hardcore band before evolving into an arena rock-nu metal-techno pop act. Singer-guitarist Michael McGough was formerly with post-hardcore band the Elijah.

Their albums include Dear G-d (2013), How We Both Wondrously Perish (which reached number 57 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart in 2014), a self-titled album (2015), and Waiting for Morning to Come (2017).

Their fifth studio album PROXY: An A.N.I.M.O. Story, was recorded with Grammy-nominated producer and collaborator, Zakk Cervini (Blink-182, Poppy, Halsey). It was released in September 2019, along with a video for "Play Pretend," prior to them leaving for a UK/EU tour.
