about

We Lost The Sea’s Departure Songs is inspired by failed, yet epic and honourable journeys or events throughout history - times where people have done extraordinary things for the greater good of those around them, and for the progress of the human race itself. Each song has it’s own story and is a soundtrack to that story.

“This is our 3rd album and our first instrumental album. We’re exploring new ground and exploring ourselves in the past two and a bit years since Chris went on his own journey. It’s slightly bleak with shimmers of hope and layers of many things. It’s a tribute and a catharsis of emotion and it’s also really honest.”

Thank you for your support.

For fans of: Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Mogwai, Sigur Ros, Cult of Luna, and Pink Floyd.
