Recently, The Ocean Blue recently announced their first album in over six years – Kings and Queens / Knaves and Thieves, will drop on June 21 via Korda Records. Ahead of the release, the band have shared “All The Way Blue.”
The Ocean Blue arrived as the 1980s drew to close, and their debut record on famed Sire Records (Madonna, The Cure, The Smiths, Talking Heads, the Ramones, etc) in 1989 seemed to summarize the best of the musical decade. The band of four teenagers from Hershey, PA quickly achieved widespread acclaim and Top 10 Modern Rock/College Radio & MTV airplay, with hits like “Between Something and Nothing” and “Drifting, Falling.”
The band’s LP Cerulean, which included one of their most beloved songs “Ballerina Out of Control,” was followed by the release of their highest charting pop album, Beneath the Rhythm and Sound and fourth record for Mercury/PolyGram, See The Ocean Blue. After a busy decade of recording and touring, the band left the majors in the late 1990s. In 2013, The Ocean Blue released their first full-length record in over 10 years, Ultramarine on Korda Records.In 2015, the band worked with Sire Records and Shelflife to reissue their first three Sire albums on vinyl.
Frontman David Schelzel is also part of international supergroup 5 Billion in Diamonds led by producer/drummer Butch Vig, making music with members Spiritualized, Soundtrack of Our Lives, Echo & the Bunnymen and more.
