OCEANS – Release New Single “The Awakening” + Kick Off Pre-Save For Their Upcoming EP Hell Is Where The Heart Is – Part I: Love

After releasing their digital EP We Are Nøt Okay in early 2021, rising German-Austrian nu-metal stars OCEANS recently unveiled their new digital single “Sulfur” via Nuclear Blast.

Now, they return with yet another pummeling, driving, yet melodic and most of all melancholic anthem, titled “The Awakening”. The single comes with a beautiful music video that you can watch here:

Timo Rotten comments: “’The Awakening’ is a love letter to the people who are here for us at our darkest. At that moment when you hit rock bottom and fall into the void of nothingness. No hope, no light, just emptiness. But then someone reaches out and pulls you out of this misery. We want to thank you. You know who you are!”

“The Awakening” is part of the digital EP Hell Is Where The Heart Is – Part I: Love, which will be released on January 14th.

Timo Rotten comments: “’Sulfur’ is a love song but in a very unconventional way. You know the situation: you and your loved one get into a serious fight, doors slamming and all. And then sometimes, things are being thrown at each other that shouldn’t have been said… words that sting like knives. This is where love burns like sulfur.”
