After 5 years of touring on Pelagial, THE OCEAN deliver their long-awaited 8th studio album, split into two volumes to be separately released in 2018 and 2020 respectively, titled Phanerozoic.
The Phanerozoic eon succeeded the Precambrian supereon, spanning a 500 million-year period leading to the present day. It has witnessed the evolution and diversification of plant and animal life on Earth, and the (partial) destruction of it during 5 mass extinction events.
Conceptually and musically, The Ocean’s Phanerozoic is the missing link between the albums Precambrian and Heliocentric / Anthropocentric.
supported by 400 fans who also own “Phanerozoic I: Palaeozoic”
