Even though OCEANO did say that the 14th Annual New England Metal and Hardcore Festival, which takes place on April 20th, will be their final live performance, they have denied rumours that they’re breaking up as they’re working on a new album.
Frontman Adam Warren clarifies both the break up rumours and the band’s future:
Kinda funny how right around Easter we decide to pull a Jesus and flip the script on what everyone was thinking right?
With rumors running around, and haters trolling in their own discontent, it IS true Oceano will be staying alive and kicking for the rest of 2012 and far beyond.
After essentially removing ourselves entirelyfrom touring and the music aspect of our lives for almost 8 months, we all got to spend time with our families and friends and rediscover “normal” life.
We rarely experienced this being a part of Oceano. So it felt amazing. But also, within all the valuable time home the itch slowly started to come back.
Our “final shows” at the Jamboree and New England Hardcore/Metal Fest began to come closer, yet it just didn’t feel like anywhere near the proper way to end this band.
We all respect and appreciate how far Oceano has come amidst all the bullshit and sidetracking. Prevailing from the entire struggle made it all worth it. We also love and cherish the things we sacrifice to be on the road and perform for all those people who have supported us through it all. So why can’t we have both?
We each took the time to discover the best approach and game plan to have ample time for the things we hold most important at home (family, jobs, etc.) while still being able to do what we love and making a living off of it.
We’re beyond stoked to get back to work and infect every listener with our brand of Windy City Death, but this WON’T be the Oceano you knew from last year, or even before that. The stakes are higher,shits gonna get heavier, and we’re coming to entice destruction and bloodshed in every city. See you soon.
