New Album "The Banished Heart" Announced By Oceans Of Slumber

Houston-based progressive metal outfit Oceans of Slumber has just announced the release of the forthcoming full-length album "The Banished Heart," which will be issued on March 2, 2018 via Century Media Records.

Singer Cammie Gilbert comments, "Guided by our resolve to only make music that is real to us, we explored a new depth and crawled deep inside ourselves to uncover what had been hiding and bring it out into the light. Sometimes in life there are places where we are able to turn away, to get away with applying the utilities of denial, but not this time. This time we forced ourselves to stay in that uncomfortable and terrifying place. To explore its vast and dark void in hopes of uncovering a better path out of it, not only for ourselves, but for all those familiar with that same dark place within themselves."

Oceans Of Slumber mystifies listeners with atmospheric melodies over darkened dynamics that range from the perversely sinister to the adventurously progressive, creating an undeniably epic wall of sound that has become the Texans’ trademark.

More details on the album will be revealed soon.

The band also recently announced two album release shows:

3/2 Houston, TX - White Oak Music Hall
3/3 New York, NY - Saint Vitus

YES! Awesome news. Winter was/is a masterpiece. Looking forward to this next step and to see how Cammie contributes to these songs along with what Dobber and the rest of the gang bring as well.

Can't wait!
