We don’t know about you guys but generally anytime we get to go to an instrument shop (like Guitar Center, for example) it’s always a pretty good time. You know, getting to try out some high-quality equipment you could probably never afford, shredding on some top-notch guitars and even giving the synth section a go is usually pretty entertaining.
So, when we heard UK metalcore outfit Oceans Ate Alaska were coming to town supporting their newest LP Hikari, we thought it was a total no-brainer to take the five-piece to a local Guitar Center and watch them jam out – key word being “thought.”
Instead, what we experienced was something we (and the Guitar Center employees) will probably never forget. Without getting into details, we highly suggest watching our five-minute video coverage of the band above. Afterwards, if you’ve yet to pick up a copy of Hikari, be sure to do so here.
