THE OCEAN released Phanerozoic Live last November digitally via Metal Blade Records and physically via Pelagic Records.

In early 2021 with no end of lockdowns in sight, THE OCEAN decided to thank their fans for the support with two streaming concerts, performing both Phanerozoic albums in their entirety: Phanerozoic I was streamed live from Pier 2, a big hall in the port of Bremen, Germany on March 25th, 2021. With more than 1500 tickets sold, it was the most successful show of the popular “Club 100” streaming events series thus far.

The day after this event, the band rehearsed and recorded Phanerozoic II in its entirety. This performance aired on April 16th, 2021 as part of the digital edition of Roadburn Festival (aptly named Roadburn Redux). Both shows couldn’t have been more different: where the first part boasts with a pompous, mesmerizing lighting production on a big stage, the second part is quite the opposite: intimate, almost cozy, focused on musicianship rather than performance. Preview and purchase Phanerozoic Live at THIS LOCATION.
