Bison Unveils New Album "You Are Not The Ocean You Are The Patient"

Vancouver metal band Bison makes a devastating return with brand-new album,"You Are Not The Ocean You Are The Patient."

Set for release in Europe on June 23rd followed by a North American release on July 7th, the crushing new offering follows the 2014-issued "1000 Needles" EP and serves asa first full-length offering to include bassist Shane Clark, former lead guitarist of 3 Inches Of Blood.

"It was important that the songs fit together to tell a bit of a story," relays guitarist and vocalist James Farwell, "a story of a new life and escaping the city, while still being tethered to it. Life is a constant fight, and though I have taken the fight to a more natural and beautiful place, that struggle persists. This is an album of daily living. It is for everyone."

Bison's "You Are Not The Ocean You Are The Patient" was captured in the band's hometown with long time friend Jesse Gander at Rain City Recorders.

"I wanted to also steep myself in music that was not necessarily heavy in the obvious sense," Farwell continues, "so I was listening to lots of blues while writing the album: Peter Green, Muddy Waters, and Howlin' Wolf. There was also lots of instrumental rock music playing on my long commutes to Vanceouver for work and rehearsals."

"The new songs still sound like 'us,' whatever that means," vocalist Dan And adds, "but we aren't concerned with shying away from whatever influences creep up. The older we get and the longer we play together, the less we give a shit about trying to sound like anything in particular."

1. Until The Earth Is Empty
2. Anti War
