Recently, OCEANS released their second single ‘VOICES’ from the upcoming digital EP ‘WE ARE NØT OKAY , that isdue to be released on April 30th. The third single, ‘SHARK TOOTH’, that is out today, once again features a very special guest at the microphone: Christoph Wieczorek of the German Post-Hardcore pioneers ANNISOKAY.
In contrast to the dark and depressing topics the band usually deals with, ‘SHARK TOOTH’, a powerful nu metal-infused banger, acts as a hopeful anthem for every lost soul out there.
Today, OCEANS also announce their “Never Lose Hope” tour Vol. 1 for January 2022. The tour consists of six shows at locations across Germany and Austria.
“The whole world is waiting to experience live shows again and we will bring some to you. We have so much new song material and plenty of playtime, so you’re definitly in for an unforgettable evening. There will be joy and tears, and we will unleash all the power, that we had to hold back for so many months.“– Timo Rotten
