The Ocean followed up their 2013 album Pelagial with both 2018's Phanerozoic I: Palaeozoic and 2020's Phanerozoic II: Mesozoic / Cenozoic, giving fans more than enough to listen to. Now they're doing that exact same release plan again.
The Ocean has revealed they're constructing a new studio, and when it's done they're planning on recording two new albums they've already written. They also revealed they'll be playing Phanerozoic I in full on March 25. Tickets for that are available here.
“We will be performing Phanerozoic I in its entirety on Thursday, March 25, 8PM CET, streamed live from Pier2 in Bremen, Germany.
"Please join to make this evening special— it will be a show without any audience in the live room. We‘ll be playing for you guys at your homes, whereever they are.
"After more than a year of absence from playing music, we’re stoked about getting back together to rehearse and perform— even more so, because we have a new space which we are currently transforming into our own recording studio. This is the beginning of a new era for us. We’ve battled against the inertia of 2020 with writing a whole bunch of new material, and the result is that we’ve got 2 new albums ready to record once the construction work is done.
"For now there are no plans to make this available online after the event, nor to do this again, so don‘t miss out on this.
"If this goes well, we‘ll promise to do something for Phanerozoic II a bit later in the year 😉‣”
