We let the guys in Oceans Ate Alaska take over our Instagram account yesterday while they're on their Ashes To Ashes tour in Vienna. Here's what we learned.

1. Oceans Ate Alaska love tea! Because how else do you represent Britain while being on a European tour?

Hang on, does Chris even have anything in his cup?

2. James K obviously misses his girlfriend. Just look at that intense stare. He thinks she's the guitar.

It's alright mate, you'll be home soon.

3. Fun fact: Drummer Chris is actually the world Parkour champion. (Not actually a fact).


So here's our drummer @chrisoaa hanging around on the #AshesToAshesTour in Germany! #oaa #oceansatealaska #432crew

It's good to see the guys HANGING OUT between shows. Heh. We'll see ourselves out...

4. OAA's selfie game is STRONG. Do you know how hard it is to fit that many people in a front-camera shot?! 


PRE-SHOW SELFIE!!! #ashestoashestour #oceansatealaska #oaa #432crew

This might not break the internet, but it was a good effort.

5. They really love pulling faces. Mike looks like he just remembered he left the cat in the washing machine.


Sometimes @mikeoaa pulls stupid faces on stage! #AshesToAshesTour #OceansAteAlaska #OAA #432Crew

"Guys, I did a bad thing..."
