OCEANO: Debut Album To Feature Artwork By COLIN MARKS

Chicago's OCEANO has tapped Colin Marks to create the artwork for the band's upcoming debut album, "Depths". Colin Marks is a London-based artist whose dark and gritty art style has made him the right man to provide the visuals for bands like STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, ABORTED and WHITECHAPEL. His proficiency for creating striking works of symbolic art with a heavy twist made him the perfect choice to collaborate with the heaviest, most pissed off band on the planet. "We felt he was the right guy," says OCEANO guitarist Andrew Mikhail. "Based on his work with WHITECHAPEL and ABORTED, we felt that he could represent 'Depths' the way we envisioned it — dark and abstract. On top of everything, he's simply a great guy to work with."

"Depths" will contain 13 tracks (15 in Japan) of the angriest deathcore cuts ever committed on record alongside a limited edition bonus DVD. An early 2009 release is expected.

OCEANO will head into the studio this October to record "Depths" with producer Joey Sturgis (THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, MY CHILDREN MY BRIDE) at The Foundation Studios in Connersville, Indiana.
