Ocean Grove are kicking off a new chapter of their musical journey today with the release of “Ask For The Anthem.” The track, which was produced by drummer Sam Bassal and co-written with studio member Running Touch, premiered on triple j radio earlier this week with fans being treated to a quirky and captivating visual today. Watch the video now below.
The video, directed and edited by the band’s longtime collaborator Thomas Elliott, features Ocean Grove at their creative best. “We pushed our own limits of experimentation on this track,” says Dale. “It is by far the most time and energy we have invested into any one song. Just so you know, this is not a song about being cool and getting the girl. Look closer.”
The band has also announced today that Twiggy Hunter is their new bass player with Dale Tanner becoming the full-time frontman of the group.
While the band toured in the US recently with metal core giants August Burns Red, fans in Australia will be lucky to catch the first live performances of “Ask For The Anthem” later this month when they hit the road with Hands Like Houses.
