OCEANS – Reveal New Single “EVERYONE I LOVE IS BROKEN” + New EP “We Are Nøt Okay“ Is OUT NOW!

Today, post-metal heroes OCEANS release their new digital EP We Are Nøt Okay via Nuclear Blast. They also reveal their fourth single ‘EVERYONE I LOVE IS BROKEN’, for which the band teamed up with none other than the American metal legend Robb Flynn (MACHINE HEAD) to call out the dangers of rashly prescribed antidepressants. The accompanying music video graphically displays the effects of pill addiction.

Timo Rotten comments: “Working with Robb and all the other amazing people that contributed to this EP was an experience I will never forget.
Everyone was so positive about it and we all put so much energy into this without the slightest hint of hesitation. It’s just absolutely mind-blowing to me and I couldn’t be happier about how it all turned out.
Together we can make a difference and end the stigma of mental health once and for all!”

Robb Flynn adds: “The OCEANS team reached out to me with a really unique idea for a song. There was a public blog about depression that anyone could add their story to, the band partnered with the blog and took bits of people’s stories, and from that concept came the lyrics for this song.
As someone who has battled and written about depression, I know how powerful music can be to fight off the feeling. This song has a powerful message, I’m honored to be a part of this great song.”
