To those still liking our page, thank you so much - even though we disbanded late 2014, it's nice to know people are still discovering us - some of us are still active in bands and projects - Lee Alexander is guitarist for In My Disguise, Jax Deacon is currently performing in a Johnny Cash covers band (search: Jax & Co) and I James Whitby am with alt. rock band Siberian Divide if you want to check out where we are now.
Much love the gathering of more followers of Oculus. Never say never.
James Whitby - former lead vocals
Before anyone gets excited - this is NOT a REUNION status!
Just wanted to show appreciation to those still 'Liking' our page despite us splitting back in 2014.
Music is still music if you enjoy listening to it whether the band are famous or not, dead, not together or anything like that.
Thank you again for your support!
Just a quick update, it seems now that everyone is on their own path musically and looks to be an exciting year ahead
- Our former Drummer Lee is currently working on 'IMD'
If there are any bassists about looking for a band,
check these guys out ...
- Former Keys player Patrick has started a band called 'Abreaction' playing some great acoustic tracks around Ipswich area!
- Former Bassist and Guitarist Sam and Jake have just reformed their three piece band, Harmless Insanity a blend of old school punk and pop punk!
- And our former lead singer James has got something in the works for the new year! hopefully have more information soon!
all in all some really positive stuff!
It is with a heavy heart that after nearly three years of symphonic madness, Oculus have decided to call it a day.
Due to the departure of the drummer and other ventures surrounding the band it would be difficult to continue the band at this time.
Thank you for supporting all that we put our hearts into, to all our families, friends and of course, the Oculites - we salute you!
As a final thank you and farewell, we give to you our final recording - we proudly present....KING ...OF FOOLS!
OCULUS NEEDS NEW DRUMMER!
