Hot News: The Ocean – ‘Pelagial’ European headline tour with support from Shining, Tides From Nebula and Hacride announced!

THE OCEAN has launched a brand new video for Bathyalpelagic II: The Wish in Dreams from their most recent album, Pelagial!

The video is the band’s first official music video, not counting previous videos composed of live footage, and was directed by Alexander Kraudelt and Lukas Hambach, produced by Frameshock, with additional visuals by Craig Murray. Bathyalpelagic II: The Wish in Dreams is streaming now HERE!

Guitarist and founding member Robin Staps comments: “This clip is blending performance footage with excerpts from Craig Murray’s ‘Pelagial’ movie, which was released along with the limited edition CD and vinyl boxset versions of the album. We’ve never really done a clip like that before, but it was great fun making this.”

THE OCEAN just announced a European headlining tour for the fall of this year!

Pelagial, the latest album from THE OCEAN, has been received with open arms and ears across the globe – this is a band that is becoming widely regarded as leaders within their genre. Metal Sucks declared that THE OCEAN have “never written more intriguing music” in their 5/5 review. Spin recognised the band’s diversity with “Mastodon-shaped footprints, lush strings… [before] the submarine crashes at Melvins tempos”. Decibel noted a band who have“become more luxurious, experimental and textural”, Terrorizer heard an album “ambitious and adventurous”, whilst Kerrang were bowled over by “melodrama, intimacy, grandeur, grace and big fucking riffs.” Rock-A-Rolla, bastions of taste at the experimental end of heavy music, emphasised how revered The Ocean currently are: “With Isis gone, no one has yet taken their place as intelligent and sensitive masters of post-metal but, with this, there’s no doubt that The Ocean are shoe-ins for the title.”

The latter’s emphasis is fitting considering THE OCEAN recently toured a number of sell out shows with another master of post-metal, Cult of Luna. The Mastodon reference is relevant after they invited THE OCEAN out for their summer tour dates, and the diversity on display is never more apparent when you consider tours in the past few years with Dillinger Escape Plan, Opeth and Anathema. THE OCEAN has an army of fans, and undoubtedly the respect of their peers.

Diverse elements are honed and perfected on Pelagial, and this ethos is at the heart of the touring package for THE OCEAN’s headline European tour. For an album that treads a wild and creative path within and outside of the supposed boundaries of metal, Norway’s SHINING could not be a more appropriate addition to the touring bill. Their new album One One One was recently released and it’s direct and pulsating approach is gathering the same kind of response that saw 2010’s Blackjazz get rave reviews all over the world, with contemporaries such as Danko Jones and Mike Portnoy writing pieces praising the band. If you’ve seen them live then you’ll know how good they are; if you’ve not, you need to! Poland’s TIDES FROM NEBULA meanwhile have been mesmerising the underground and in 2013 they take a step up, releasing their new album via a brand new label. They bring post-rock to this package, a welcome ingredient due to this genre touching aspects of Pelagial. Finally, France’s HACRIDE bring some serious, technical heaviness to the tour, as anyone who has heard their new album Back To Where You’ve Never Been will testify.
