History

Tides of Man first released their self titled debut EP in 2008. After the release of their self titled EP, the band signed to Rise Records to release their full length debut Empire Theory in 2009. Then in 2010, Tides of Man released their follow up to 2009's debut with Dreamhouse. Shortly after the release of Dreamhouse, vocalist Tilian Pearson departed from the group. [1]

Departure of Pearson and Young and Courageous (2010–present)

On December 20, 2010, the band announced that Pearson had left the band to focus on a new musical project (reportedly to become the lead singer of Saosin, but he ended up replacing Jonny Craig as the lead singer in Dance Gavin Dance). The band also stated that they were going to audition new singers and continue on as a band. The departure of Pearson forced them to drop off the No Rain, No Rainbow tour with Greeley Estates and the Downtown Battle Mountain II tour with Dance Gavin Dance that took place early 2011. After Pearson's departure, the group wrote instrumental tracks while looking for a new vocalist. It was also announced that Spencer Bradham has joined as keyboardist, although later it was clarified he only joined as a studio member due to him not being able to go on tour because of his work as an audio engineer. [2]

The band's first instrumental album, Young and Courageous was released on February 4, 2014.

The band released its second instrumental album, Every Nothing, on August 3, 2018.

Style and songwriting

Songwriting is an integrative process involving every member, with the exception of vocal tracking for Empire Theory, on which Pearson recorded separately from the band, due to being in a different city. Empire Theory is a concept album about war and mercy with the songs being mapped out. On Dreamhouse many of the songs were written by either Gill or Pearson sitting in a room alone, coming up with a song structure and essential riffs. Then the drums and bass were worked individually and the songs were interactively built piece by piece. The recurring theme lyrically in Dreamhouse is about not taking the life you have for granted.
