The Ocean Recording New Double Album “Phanerozoic”

The Ocean have revealed that they are recording a new double album titled “Phanerozoic.” The first part will be released in September 2018, while the second part will arrive in 2019. Robin Staps said the following about the effort, which is being recorded in Iceland:

“We were looking for an isolated place in a cold and beautiful environment to get us into the right mood for making this record. The new album will start off bleak, cold and heavy… and then evolve and diversify throughout the second half.”

what happens in iceland, stays in iceland… #maybe ❄️
