After 5 years of touring on PELAGIAL, The Ocean deliver their long-awaited 8th studio album, split into two volumes to be separately released in 2018 & 2020 respectively, titled Phanerozoic. The Phanerozoic eon succeeded the Precambrian supereon, spanning a 500 million-year period leading to the present day. It has witnessed the evolution and diversification of plant and animal life on Earth and the (partial) destruction of it during 5 mass extinction events. Conceptually and musically, The Ocean's Phanerozoic is the missing link between the albums Precambrian and Heliocentric/Anthropocentric.
