Houston-based progressive metal outfit OCEANS OF SLUMBER have released a video for their new single “The Banished Heart”, which is also the title track of the upcoming album to be released on 02 March 2 2018.
The band comments: “As many terrible ups and downs as we’ve had over the years and as hard as 2017 was for some, we have made something we are very proud of. Something we could funnel into the aural and visual, and something that is bound to crush us and you. We made a record that is a window in time. A chronicling of what life was during it and an album we could call home for a bit.”
“Don’t dance with the devil too often – sometimes he takes the lead and takes you home.”
