THE OCEAN Announce Release Dates For NEW Album; Band To Tour With CULT OF LUNA!

2013 will be a busy year for THE OCEAN. The band will release a NEW album on April 26 (GSA), April 29 (Europe) and April 30 (USA) 2013 on Metal Blade Records, the follow-up to the critically acclaimed 'Heliocentric' and 'Anthropocentric' albums (2010). To support the release, THE OCEAN will embark on a 3 weeks European tour with CULT OF LUNA in April and May (dates further below), including a performance at Roadburn Festival on April 20th.

The NEW album will be a single album containing 52 minutes of NEW music. It will be mixed by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia, etc.) in January and will come in 2 versions: instrumental and with vocals.

Comments THE OCEAN's Robin Staps: "The album was originally written to be instrumental, but in the end me and Loic couldn't help but try out a few things vocal-wise and we soon got pretty excited… so there will be vocals on the album; however, we want everyone to have both versions, and we are also planning to perform the album live that way - with and without vocals."

The special edition of the album will be released along with a film by Craig Murray (Nine Inch Nails).

The 3xDVD "Collective Oblivion" has been postponed for a release later in the year, but shall also see the light of day in 2013.

THE OCEAN and LO! have both been confirmed to play Roadburn Festival 2013 and as support acts on the upcoming tour of CULT OF LUNA!
