SUDDENLY: the Nuclear Sunburst of the Truth Revealed
YOUNG OCEANS, over the past four years, has been quietly releasing independent albums, that have organically grown a grassroots audience of fans. This October, YOUNG OCEANS is at it again, with their new album titled “SUDDENLY (or the Nuclear Sunburst of the Truth Revealed).” They are also preparing their debut band's tour.
In the early stages of writing the band’s 2014 album “I MUST FIND YOU,” band's songwriter Eric Marshall became captivated with the Eucharist also known as Holy Communion.
“Whatever the language, whatever the time, whatever the culture, participation in Communion provides an intimacy and solidarity founded not in prosperity or political power but in brokenness, humility, and surrender,” he states. “We took on the challenging experiment of writing a collection of songs that could double as a traditional Eucharist service.” Eric continues, "Young Oceans, and certainly this album, is not an ecumenical exercise but rather a poetic one. I’m not speaking for any denomination or specific perspective. We’re exploring something that is mysterious. Something that is supposed to unite us."
As a result, the album is a collection of recordings that double as both a Eucharist liturgy and the new Young Oceans album. The songs are interlaced with many ancient prayers that both Catholics and Protestants will find familiar, including the invocation to the benediction.
A Pledge Music campaign has also been created to give fans early access to exclusive content including, videos, and merchandise. Check it out here http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/youngoceans/updates
