The Ocean Party Announce New Album And Massive National Tour

The Ocean Party may just be the hardest working band in Australia. They have just announced their fifth album in just three years Light Weight and have also unveiled a lengthy list of tour dates.

Light Weight will be released on 9th October in Australia via Spunk Records. All six members of the band have written and sung on this album, which was recorded in Melbourne with producer John Lee, making it an amalgamation of plenty of ideas.

The album is preceded by the single Guess Work which was their first slice of new music for 2015 and marked the first time they’d recorded in an actual studio. Stream the track in full, below.

The Light Weight tour will see The Ocean Party plucked from the studio once again and placed in front of what seems like it could be the whole of Australia. They are performing over a massive 26 dates which includes a slot at Brisbane’s BIGSOUND.

The tour will kick-off supporting Teeth & Tongue in Melbourne on 28th August and wrap-up almost three months later in Launceston.

Check out the tour dates plus the album artwork and tracklist below.
