Oceans Of Slumber recently announced The Lighthouse East Tour. The band will be hitting the road this fall for a handful of headline shows starting in their hometown, Houston, on August 27 and wrapping in Austin on September 11.

Fronted by the inimitable power, range, and grace of vocalist Cammie Beverly, Starlight and Ash posits Oceans Of Slumber in a league of their own. This is as much eloquent extensions of famed singer-songwriters Nick Cave and Chris Stapleton as it is the heartbreaking pulse of Type O Negative and Katatonia. Starlight And Ash isn’t metal, but its edges are.
