The 2nd episode of OCEANO TV has been posted on the band’s YouTube page. In this episode , the band’s 2 newest members, guitarists Nick Conser and Devin Shidaker open up about what it’s been like to play with the heaviest, most pissed off band on earth and bassist Jason Jones talks about his disappointing Independence Day whilst giving fans inside access to footage of the band’s instrument tracking sessions. Patient fans will even find a short snippet of a track off of CONTAGION –delivered fresh from producer Zeuss‘ (MUNICIPAL WASTE, THE ACACIA STRAIN, HATEBREED, SHADOWS FALL) mixing board — at the end of the video.
