The Ocean Blue prep new LP, share “Kings and Queens,” touring
Alt-rock vets The Ocean Blue will release Kings and Queens / Knaves and Thieves, their first album in six years, on June 21 via Korda Records. They've shared "Kings and Queens" from the album, which is a jangly bit of dreampop cut from the same cloth as college radio classics like "Drifting Falling," "Between Something and Nothing" and "Ballerina Out of Control." You can watch the video for the song below.
The Ocean Blue launch their tour right after the album's release, beginning with a hometown show in Lancaster, PA and then hitting Brooklyn, Seattle, Portland, Minneapolis, Phoenix, Philadelphia, and Norfolk. They've also got fall tour dates in DC, Detroit, Chicago, Los Angeles and more. The Brooklyn show happens at Rough Trade on June 23 and tickets are on sale.
