The Ocean have announced a UK/European tour, set to take place in January 2021. The dates are in support of the band’s forthcoming eighth full-length Phanerozoic II: Mesozoic | Cenozoic, which is due for release on 25th September 2020 via Metal Blade Records (CD/digital) and the band’s own Pelagic Records (vinyl). 

“This tour has been planned for a long time already and despite the unprecedented situation we’re all currently going through, we decided to announce it and put tickets on sale now,” says the band. “We hope that this will serve as a strong positive statement for bands, promoters and music fans alike. As this develops, we have to assess, analyse and make the right decisions for everyone involved. The tour going ahead in early 2021 relies on many elements to fall into place, and if it can’t go ahead, then we have a backup routing in place already for later in the year, and all tickets purchased for this tour will be transferrable to that. Be assured that we will keep assessing this situation as we head later into 2020, and be in communication with everyone. Much love and we hope to see you guys out there in January!”
