Sumerian Records has announced the signing of Chicago, Illinois deathcore titans OCEANO. The band is currently recording the follow-up to 2015's "Ascendants" at The Nook Recording Studio in New Lenox, Illinois. A late spring release is expected.
Vocalist Adam Warren comments: "I and the rest of OCEANO are beyond honored to become a part of the Sumerian family. The journey of OCEANO through its awakening was seemingly meant to bring us to such an exciting opportunity to work with the best label to truly visualize and amplify our music and message."
Part of the first wave of American deathcore, OCEANO burst forth onto the scene with the release of 2009's "Depths", a pure and pummeling deathcore debut from the quintet. OCEANO established themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the heavy metal scene by way of constant touring and the release of three more bone shattering full-length albums via their former label Earache Records. OCEANO fans can expect a devastating display of heaviness blended with vast atmospherics for the group’s upcoming, currently untitled record that sees the band continuing to take strides forward with their writing and involved lyrical message.
In other news, OCEANO will hit the road this spring to headline "The Revelation" tour that kicks off on April 5 in Valparaiso, Indiana and wraps up on May 20 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Joining OCEANO on "The Revelation" tour are SLAUGHTER TO PREVAIL, AVERSIONS CROWN, SPITE and NO ZODIAC.
