The Ocean are Losing Two Members After their Current Tour

by | Oct 29, 2013

The Ocean will be losing two of their members after their current European tour.

Guitarist Jonathan Nido and drummer Luc Hess will be stepping down.

While an official statement hasn’t been released, Nido addressed the issue on his Facebook.

“[A]ll I can say is that we both had the feeling it was the right time to take this decision and move-on. There are obviously a ton of reasons for that to happen now. That include artistic divergence, full-time commitment to a project that isn’t 100% fullfilling anymore and other stuff like not wanting to deal with certain aspects/restrictions of what an established/touring act requires for its production and also the way things are generally working, especially on a personal level.”
