Oceans Release New Single ‘We Are NØT Okay’

After revealing the first details about their upcoming digital EP “We Are Nøt Okay”, due to be released on April 30th, OCEANS follow up with the first tune of their new masterpiece. Today, the band release the title track “WE ARE NØT OKAY”, teaming up with Andy Dörner (CALIBAN) who joins the song as a feature guest on vocals.

Singer Timo Rotten states:
“The title track for ‘WE ARE NØT OKAY‘ is about recognizing the fact that it’s actually okay to NOT be okay. We as a society have to overcome the stigma of mental health and admit, that we have a problem. Especially in those challenging times right now, mental health is an important issue that unfortunately is too often swept under the carpet. So if you’re fighting any kind of mental illness we encourage you: reach out to somebody, stop faking smiles and admit that #wearenotokay. Only if we do that, we take a first step towards becoming a more caring and inclusive society. Down in the abyss we are many. “

Andy Dörner adds: 
” The topic of “WE ARE NØT OKAY” fits perfectly into today’s world. Even though the theme is timeless, 
It’s very important to speak about it and I’m very happy to be a part of this banger song! Enjoy my friends and don’t hesitate to speak up about your problems and inner demons … There is always a solution! “

The single comes with an intense video, which you can watch below:

The EP “We Are Nøt Okay” will be released on April, 30th and contains four different songs dealing with all aspects of mental illness. Each track will feature a special guest adding his very own style to the new output of Berlin / Vienna based post metal heroes OCEANS.

Cooperating with The Ocean In Your Mind, A German NPO, the band adds a very serious tone to their newest output by turning “music for the depressed” into active help and encouraging fans to join the cause.

Raphael Funck, Founder of The Ocean In Your Mind eV adds:
“We dream of a world, in which people can freely show their vulnerability. We are giving hope a voice and are fighting together against suicide and for mental health.”
