The Ocean Share Their Take On Lustmord’s “Primal”

The Ocean have shared their rendition of Lustmord’s “Primal.” The track, which is titled “Primal [State Of Being],” is from the upcoming Lustmord tribute album “The Others [Lustmord Deconstructed].” That effort will be available individually and as part of Lustmord’s “[ O T H E R ]“ 9xLP/5-CD box set on April 1. The box set is called “The Other” and it will also feature two remix albums, “[ THE DARK PLACES OF THE EARTH ]” and “[ B E Y O N D ].“

The Ocean’s Loïc Rossetti To Miss The Band’s Upcoming Shows To Undergo Surgery For His Broken Legs

The Ocean’s Loïc Rossetti will be heading home early from the band’s current tour to undergo surgery for his broken legs. This news comes after the vocalist was previously trying to finish the trek in a wheelchair.

The band issued the following statement:

“Loïc literally went a little too far and broke both of his legs 2 days ago, he’s got 4 fractures in total and needs surgery. He still played the L.A. show with us in a wheelchair yesterday despite being in severe pain, and he will perform with us one last time tonight in Berkeley. Then he will be transferred to Switzerland for surgery.

The show must go on, we will continue this tour without him. We will play ‘Phanerozoic II‘ in its entirety for the next few shows, and run his vocals as backing tracks. We’ve always thought it’s super lame to do that, but under the given circumstances it seems like the best option and we trust you agree that this is no Milli Vanilli situation. Gabbo from Implore is with us and might take on vocal duties for some tracks too.

By all means, please DO come out to the remaining shows to support us in these difficult times. This tour has been such a blast so far, it’s a big blow for us as you can imagine and of course for Loïc more than anything.

Thank you.”

The Ocean Cancel January 2022 European Tour

The Ocean have cancelled their European tour with pg.lost, Hypno5e, and Psychonaut due to the coronavirus pandemic. The band commented:

“As most of you might have noticed, the world fucken sucks these days, and to contribute our own share to this great contemporary gobal suckfest, we see no other option but to cancel our upcoming tour. Over the past 2 weeks, several countries on the routing have announced restrictions for live concerts that make them de facto impossible, or imposed mandatory (and expensive for a crew of 18 persons) PCR tests as immigration prerequisites, or both. We’ve tried until the very last moment to salvage at least a couple of these shows… but at this stage and under the given circumstances, holding on to this tour would imply tremendous health- and finacial risks for everyone involved, from promoters to you and us. Therefore the tour is off. Be sure that WE WILL reschedule these dates once more and this time to the warmer season, since this bastard virus just loves the cold. In the meantime, stay tuned for another big tour announcement VERY SOON. Happy new year! Stay fit, sane and don’t lose your shit like we just did. 🤘🏻”

The Ocean Premiere “Eocene” Live Video

The Ocean have premiered a new live video for their song “Eocene.” The clip was released to promote their new live album, “Phanerozoic Live,“ which will be released on November 26. That effort will feature the band’s livestream show at Pier 2 in Bremen, Germany in which they performed “Phanerozoic I: Palaeozoic” in full and their set from the “Roadburn Redux” virtual festival in which they performed “Phanerozoic II: Mesozoic / Cenozoic” in full.
