Austrian-German post death metallers OCEANS have just wrapped up a string of dates supporting label mates CELLAR DARLING and FOREVER STILL across Germany. Whilst on the road the quartet premiered new material from their upcoming debut album titled The Sun And The Cold and today, the group is pleased to announce that the aforementioned record will be released on January 10, 2020 via Nuclear Blast. To celebrate the big news, OCEANS have revealed a visualiser video for their new single ‘We Are The Storm’. Watch now: youtu.be/IJ7tJUU618U

Vocalist/guitarist Timo Rotten states, “As we are constantly trying to raise awareness for mental illness, this is the song that is meant to give strength to everyone who feels neglected, alone or is struggling somehow. It’s a powerful song for the silent ones, the introverts, the outsiders. Because still waters cut deep and we are the storm!”
