The Ocean will be releasing a new live album/film titled “Phanerozoic Live“ on November 26. Pre-orders can be found HERE.
The band commented:
“‘Phanerozoic Live’ is a live album like no other – it is a live album that was recorded in a cultural vacuum, a bizarre time that we will remember for the rest of our lives: a time when the world as we knew it suddenly stopped spinning. ⚫️
It is a live album that does without all the qualities that we usually appreciate about a live album: without the sounds of a cheering, excited crowd. But it is the very absence of this, it is the eery silence between the songs that reminds us of what we miss most, and that gives these recordings a rare intensity and power. 🔥
This release is yet another master class of record packaging from Norwegian artist and long term friend and collaborator, Martin Kvamme: the trifold is made from thick, rough and incredibly fibrous cardboard, adorned with a filigrane copper foil embossing of a bitmapped live fotography from the Bremen event. It contains 3 vinyl records in printed inner sleeves, a DVD and a concert ticket with a streaming and HD video download link to both concerts. 👌🏻
‘Phanerozoic Live’ is out November 26 via Pelagic Records and now available for pre-order on 3xLP / 2xCD + DVD / Download here: https://listen.pelagic-records.com/theocean“
