UK METALLERS OCEANS ATE ALASKA RELEASE INSTRUMENTAL VERSION OF DISPARITY 

Birmingham, UK metal quintet¬†OCEANS ATE ALASKA¬†‚ÄĒ¬†James Harrison¬†[vocals],¬†Chris Turner¬†[drums],¬†James “Jibs”¬†Kennedy¬†[guitar],¬†Adam Zytkiewicz¬†[guitar], and¬†Mike Stanton¬†[bass] ‚ÄĒ¬†have released an instrumental version of their¬†latest album¬†Disparity, out now via¬†Fearless Records. The instrumental edition is available¬†here.

“For Oceans, the instrumental release was always done out of pure demand,” the band explains. “We put a tremendous effort into making the composition as dynamically rich as possible, no aspect of the instrumentation goes without a lot of time, care, and patience put in. When you apply this work ethic, it kinda makes sense that listeners want to hear a version without vocals; that’s not to say they don’t belong to the music, but the human voice tends to capture our ears before everything else so it’s a cool experience to be able to listen to everything that surrounds it.

“With¬†Disparity, our youthful sporadic compositional tendencies have been tempered, but only to give space to our lo-fi progressions, big room energy and fundamental song structure. We are very excited about this instrumental release as it will be a new experience for everyone!”

The band is also doing a 24-hour livestream of all of the visualizers for the instrumental versions. Tune in here.

ABOUT OAA + DISPARITY:
Oceans Ate Alaska have carefully and quietly progressed to this point. Following their 2015 debut¬†Lost Isles, they presented¬†Hikari¬†in 2017. The song “Hansha”¬†amassed over 12¬†million Spotify streams as the album surpassed 40 million total streams. Upon arrival,¬†New Noise Magazine¬†raved, “Optimistic, empowering, and mesmerizing, Oceans Ate Alaska‚Äôs bold sophomore album is a true progressive metalcore triumph.”¬†Along the way, they toured with the likes of Wage War, The Plot In You, We Came As Romans, Like Moths to Flames, and more.¬†Throughout 2021, they assembled what would become¬†Disparity. Inspired by a mutual love for the likes of Bonobo and Alina Baraz, collaborator Clem Cherry enhanced the production with airy beat-craft and immersive sonic accents. At the same time, they absorbed the unease of the world, infusing a post-apocalyptic thematic undercurrent.¬†In the end, Oceans Ate Alaska encode an important message inside of¬†Disparity.¬†“For us, it’s about uplifting listeners,” Harrison says. “We want them to feel empowered to realize they can be the change they want. It’s still what we’re doing. It’s been a long time since we put out an album, but we’re here.” Indeed it has been a minute since the last OAA album but it was entirely worth the wait.
