THE END OF THE OCEAN RELEASE NEW ALBUM "-AIRE" AND SHARE NEW VIDEO
Columbus, Ohio based post-rock band, The End Of The Ocean, released their sophomore full-length, -aire, today via Rude Records/Equal Vision Records. To celebrate, the band has also shared the official video for their single “desire”, which Revolver called “a sprawling and furious, yet pensive entry”. -aire, the band’s first release since 2012, balances rich, thoughtful melodic passages, high-energy riff-wielding and truly epic climatic outpourings. The End Of The Ocean have always been championed for their maelstrom of nostalgia, hope, beauty, melancholy, chaos and tranquility. Fans can now experience a bigger, bolder version of that tempest with -aire.
Speaking on the release of the album the band says: “It has been roughly seven years that these songs have resided within us. Whether we consciously knew it or not, they were brewing and restless in our psyche. With this record now fully realized and recorded, we couldn’t be happier to share it. This record is for us. And this record is for you, too.”
After reaching a breaking point following the release of their highly praised 2011 debut full length, Pacific-Atlantic, the band had to pump the brakes for fear of tearing themselves apart. With so much going on in their personal lives, Tara Mayer (keys) says that they needed to “give ourselves a chance to hurt so that we could have the chance to heal” before even thinking about another release. The past few years forced the band to come to terms with their own humanity and mortality, as well as that of their bandmates and friends. Once they were finally in a place with their personal lives that allowed them to focus on new music, the collaborative experience of writing that would become their next album, -aire, ended up being a big part of their healing process. This undertaking forged a bond that is stronger than ever between Kevin Shannon (Guitar), Trish Chisholm (Guitar), Tara Mayer (Keys), Jason Han (Bass), and Wes Jackson (Drums), who make up The End Of The Ocean.
