Ocean Is Theory was an indie rock band from Atlanta, Georgia, consisting of vocalist/guitarist Josh Williams, guitarist Nick Novak, bassist Kevin Cerbone, and drummer Clay Carter. The group debuted with Into The Mouth Of Lions in 2008, which also featured Alex West on lead guitar. The post-hardcore-influenced EP was succeeded in 2009 by In My Blood Again, in which the band's sound developed in a more conventional alternative rock direction inspired by artists like Manchester Orchestra.
The band signed with Razor And Tie Records before releasing their Future Fears EP. After a delay, the full-length Future Fears LP was released in 2012, and the band played their final show in the spring of 2013.
