It all began around 1998, when two long time friends who used to spend their summer vacations together, Andreas V. – guitar and Vagelis Lekos – bass, decided to form a band, eventually named “Floating Worlds”.

After a lot of failed attempts to record their first songs, they succeeded in completing their first album, entitled “Only A Dream, Can Kill A Dream…” in the autumn of 2007. Following the completion of the recordings, the obvious need to promote the new album through live performances, made the search for permanent band members imperative and finally the first gig of the “Only A Dream… Tour ’10 – ‘12”, took place on May 2010.

This tour came to an end after 17 gigs on July 2012 with a lot of lineup changes, of which the most important and crucial for the future of the band, were the departure of co-founder V.Lekos on November 2010 and the taking over of the male vocals by Jon Soti, on November 2011.

In November 2015, the “Sea Of Light Tour ’14 – ‘15” ended with four memorable shows in Serbia and immediately afterwards, the band entered a two year period of composing the songs of their third album.

“Battleship Oceania” was released on May 17th, 2019 and is the first concept album of the band, where the main character of the story Lieutenant David Smith, is narrating the adventurous story of the legendary Battleship Oceania and its crew.
