OCEANO WORKING ON NEW ALBUM; RELEASE LYRIC VIDEO FOR BRAND NEW TRACK

January 29th, 2013

Chicago’s OCEANO have started work on a brand new studio album, which the band have revealed will be titled INCISIONS.

The five-piece are currently hard at work writing the long-awaited follow-up to 2010′s CONTAGION, with plans to release the new album later this year on Earache Records.

OCEANO have released an official lyric video for a brand new track which is set to appear on INCISIONS, titled “Slow Murder”, giving fans a taste of the brutality to come.

Check out “Slow Murder” now at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFZ3I6ZTXR4

OCEANO guitarist NICK CONSER comments:

“The new Oceano comes out today.  Get ready for it.  We’re starting a new chapter in this band.  We’re not selling out.  We’re not getting soft.  We’re getting more fucked up and bringing more hate.  And if you want us to change, then you’re gonna be disappointed.  We’re not gonna replicate any album that we’ve ever released.  We’re going to get more evil than anything you’ve heard from this band.  Today will show the start of how hateful this record is gonna be.”

OCEANO will be hitting the road again full-time this summer in support of the new album, with tour dates due to be announced in the near future.  The band also have a hometown show scheduled for this Friday, February 1st at Reggie’s Rock Club in Chicago, featuring support from MONSTERS, THE OX KING, THIEVES and NO ZODIAC.

OCEANO NAMED AS ONE OF ALTERNATIVE PRESS MAGAZINE’S 100 BANDS YOU NEED TO KNOW IN 2011

March 9th, 2011

Chicago deathcore heavyweights, OCEANO were named as one of Alternative Press magazine’s 100 Bands You Need To Know In 2011. Distinguished for being one of the heaviest acts on the list, OCEANO‘s story is a remarkable one which is touched upon in a 1 page feature within the April 2011 issue (in stores now). In it, vocalist, Adam Warren touches upon the changes made before CONTAGION was written, the constant battle for respect out of certain segments of the metal audience and vocal techniques that keep the formidable frontman on his toes over the course of the hundreds of shows that the Billboard charting act plays each year.

OCEANO‘s feature in Alternative PressApril 2011 100 Bands You Need To Know issue is in stores now and can also be read here: http://www.earache.com/archive/oceano/AltPress_Apr11_100BandsYouNeedToKnow.jpg

OCEANO‘s feature in the April 2011 issue of Alternative Press magazine is also remarkable for the dark and disturbing photograph that accompanies it. The band is featured amongst rows of dead deer hung in a dank slaughterhouse. The photograph brings the band full circle in some respects, paying homage to the banned MySpace photos that caused an uproar when the band first signed to EARACHE RECORDS.

Go behind the scenes of OCEANO‘s photo shoot for Alternative Press here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tK6tXzXLDA

Chicago deathcore heavyweights, OCEANO will be participating in Alternative Press magazine’s free, all-ages party at Emo’s in Austin, TX on Saturday, March 19th.

OCEANO CONTAMINATES THE WEST COAST THIS JANUARY

December 2nd, 2010

Fresh off of the success of their sold out Contagion Across The Nation tour, Chicago deathcore heavyweights, OCEANO are pleased to announce the Contaminating The Coast tour. Sponsored by AMP magazine and running throughout the month of January, the Contaminating The Coast tour will see the year’s heaviest Billboard charting act get in front of their rabid western fans who have been waiting a long time for the band’s return. Trekking along with OCEANO will be their friends, FOR THE FALLEN DREAMS, UPON A BURNING BODY, THE GREAT COMMISSION and I THE BREATHER. The full list of dates for this January tour will be announced soon at http://myspace.com/oceano and http://facebook.com/oceanometal.

OCEANO‘s new album, CONTAGION landed the Chicago deathcore heavyweights at number 163 on the Billboard Current Artist Chart in its first week of release. The band also debuted on the Billboard Heatseekers chart at number 3.

CONTAGION is now out in North America. Produced by Zeuss (MUNICIPAL WASTE, THE ACACIA STRAIN, HATEBREED, SHADOWS FALL), the new album is about a government-born virus that becomes an epidemic and spreads chaos amongst the population. CONTAGION is a major step forward for OCEANO. Their signature breakdowns and inhuman heaviness is still intact, but the band’s traditional death metal influence now shines through more than ever, leading to a stronger melding of old school and modern extremities.

OCEANO COVER ARTIST DISCUSSES HIS WORK ON “CONTAGION”

October 8th, 2010

The terrifying artwork depicted on the cover of OCEANO‘s November 9th release, CONTAGION was created by Dusty Peterson. Known for his work with BLOODBATH, SIX FEET UNDER and CATTLE DECAPITATION, the band sought him out as they are fans of his work. In the end, the band felt they couldn’t have had made a better choice in an artist. “Adam was particularly excited about the interior artwork to the album when I showed him,” says Dusty.  “He said something about some lyrics that he had written that matched up with it perfectly. The concept of theirs is very vivid, just like the artwork!”

So how exactly did Dusty go about taking things from concept to the final product presented on the album? As the artist himself puts it: “At the start, Oceano had a very specific, lengthy concept that was based off of all of their lyrics. After considering the message that they wanted to convey, I basically dug deep into my horror movie interests and tried to make something that told the story of a government-caused viral outbreak but with a classic, old-school feel. I really wanted it to be colorful and eye-popping, but also very unsettling. I referenced everything from 28 days later to Dawn and Day of the Dead to classic Death album covers.”

OCEANO VOCALIST, ADAM WARREN REMINISCES ABOUT HIS RECENT STINT WITH CHELSEA GRIN

September 26th, 2010

OCEANO vocalist, Adam Warren lent his formidable talents to Utah’s CHELSEA GRIN during their recent Canadian tour. Warren stepped in for CHELSEA GRIN vocalist Alex Koehler, who was recovering from a jaw fracture. Just after coming back home, Adam gave a statement that describes his excitement over his stint fronting for CHELSEA GRIN and beyond:

“The Grin tour went awesome. It was really fun to get to experience all the Canada has to offer. Even IF it involves paying bigger prices. Everyone (Blind Witness,Chelsea grin, Attila) were all cool and it was just like picking up on a tour that I had already started. It was a good way FOR ME at least to establish some good friendships with CG and Attila as well considering Oceano will be hitting the road with them very soon. So I’m sure there will more partying to ensue when that rolls around.”
