The Ocean Posts "China" Segment From Triple DVD "Collective Oblivion"

On the heels of three long months of touring (North America, Asia, Russia) in support of latest album "Pelagial" (reviewed here), The Ocean has launched the entire "China" chapter of the "Collective Oblivion" triple DVD. Check it out below, courtesy of Noisey.vice.com.

The Ocean main man Robin Staps comments: "I can't believe that this is finally… finished. We all kind of lost hope along the way, as the project totally grew out of proportion over the last 2 years. Originally we only wanted to film one single show, and by June 2012 we were sitting on top of a pile of 28 terabytes of data filmed across the globe during 2 full years. Countless live shows, interviews, crazy parties on Russian trains and funny moments in Chinese pharmacies. But then the worst part began: editing, choosing, compiling, structuring, which took another year. Now it's done, for real! And I can safely say that you will be hard-pressed to find any other band DVD that is equally extensive, hilarious, profound and compelling, as this one. Everything you ever wanted to know about this band, from the early days until now… the answer is here! And a lot of things you didn't wanna know as well…"

"Collective Oblivion" comes in a hardcover book-style packaging with brass-foil print. The book contains 3 DVDs and a 30 page booklet. The Ocean wnill also be touring Europe throughout October and November, with dates available below.
