Ocean Colour Scene are currently in the studio working on their brand new studio album with producer Matt Terry – never too old to make a new album, fans can expect big things! Some new tracks currently being worked on are revealed in the below video clip – check it out right here on Music Scene.
In their 22 year existence Ocean Colour Scene have notched up nine albums, three of which went Top 5 – 1996’s Moseley Shoals, 1997’s Marchin’ Already and 1999’s One From The Modern – and a run of nine successive Top 20 hit singles commencing with 1996’s The Riverboat Song. They supported Oasis at their massive Knebworth shows that same year, and two years later helmed the biggest arena tour of any UK band to date.
From their days as Breton-shirt wearing disciples of The Stone Roses (debut single ‘Sway’) to million selling Britpop superstars (‘Marchin’ Already’ bumped Oasis’ ‘What the Story’ from the top spot in 1997) to long-term touring allies with Paul Weller, their story is inseparable from the greats of modern British rock.
Expect to hear hits such as The Riverboat Song, The Circle, Hundred Mile High City, Profit In Peace, and of course The Day We Caught The Train, when Ocean Colour Scene return to visit The Academy in Dublin.
Oh Oh La La – Oh Oh La La – Oh Oh La La – Oh Oh La La
