Oceans Ate Alaska Release Video For ‘Escapist’

Midlands metalcore outfit Oceans Ate Alaska have announced the upcoming release of their next album Hikari, due out July 28th via Fearless Records. This will be the first release with Jake Noakes fulfilling vocal duties since his addition earlier this year. Hikari translates to ‘light’ in English, reflecting the band’s current mindset and highlighting major strides in the group’s sonic vocabulary. With a lyrical and musical theme rooted in Samurai mythology, the 11-track album blends traditional Japanese instruments with Oceans Ate Alaska‘s dynamic flare.

“We have a huge amount of respect for Japanese culture, especially their music, these unique and beautiful instruments have inspired us to create something brand new, and we are beyond proud of the end result!” – Chris Turner, drums
