Teeth of the Sea is a psychedelic rock band from London. The group (Sam Barton, Mike Bourne, John Hirst and Jimmy Martin) were inspired to forge forth in search of oblivion unknown after experiencing an epiphany during a Wolf Eyes gig. After the release of their January 2009 album 'Orphaned By The Ocean' on Rocket Recordings John Hirst left the band, to be replaced by Mat Colegate. After a tour with Oneida, an appearance at the Offset Festival, and November's 'Holy Trinity' tour with Gnod and Thought Foms, Teeth Of The Sea released the twenty-four-minute-long 'Hypnoticon' EP in January 2010. and their second album, 'Your Mercury' was released in November 2010. 2011 saw them tour with British Sea Power, Esben & The Witch and Parts & Labor, as well as playing the Supersonic, Standon Calling and Supernormal Festivals, along with dates with Circle, Crippled Black Phoenix and Vessels. They also performed a specially commissioned soundtrack work REAPER (a Re-Imagining of Neil Marshall's Doomsday) for the Branchage Film Festival in Jersey in September, and ressurrected it in London for a one-off event in January 2012. A third album is planned for later in 2012, also to be released on Rocket Recordings.
