While THE OCEAN are working on the conceptual sequel to the band's 2007 album Precambrian; the band has recently reissued the album on vinyl. To further celebrate the 10th anniversary, the Berlin musician's collective has announced a short tour around a number of European festivals this spring, where they will perform the album in its entirety. This 12“ picture disc features a brand new studio re-recording of the "Precambrian" opener Rhyacian, with the band's current lineup. The B-side has an instrumental version of the same track, which is exclusive to this Record Store Day release! Few albums still feel relevant, fresh and contemporary-sounding, 10 years after their original release. THE OCEAN's musically most mature and versatile album to that date, Precambrian is distinguished by complex yet intimate songwriting, huge orchestrations, subtle electronic textures and immense harmonic and dynamic density. With guests appearances by Caleb Scofield (CAVE IN), Nate Newton (CONVERGE), Tomas Hallbom (BREACH) and musicians from the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, Precambrian remains a career-defining milestone for the band, and still a fan’s favourite.
