It’s been a little while, but it seems that Oceans Of Slumber have been in the studio of late. They’ve set a date of 4th September for a self-titled album via Century Media Records worldwide. The first single has broken today in the form of “A Return To The Earth Below” and the announcement of pre-orders here.
Vocalist Cammie Gilbert checked in with the following comment about the new song: “Within ourselves, just as within our societies there are cycles that need to be broken. Cycles that hold us down, that tear us apart, that give us anguish. Sometimes without warning these cracks surface and they trigger a cascade of emotional vulnerabilities, emotional turmoil, even hopelessness. But at some point we must stop running. Stop running from the pain, stop running from the truth, stop running from ourselves. In the light of this self reflection is where we will find peace, both inwardly and outwardly. A Return To The Earth Below is about that journey. It is about the collision of the heart and mind in struggling to find that internal resolution. We feel that the timing of this single couldn’t be more appropriate, as we have all found ourselves at the crossroads of change.”
