The Ocean Blue vinyl reissues

The Ocean Blue will reissue its first three albums - The Ocean Blue (1989), Cerulean (1991) and Beneath The Rhythm and Sound (1993) - on vinyl on Nov. 20 via Shelflife/Korda Records.

Both Beneath The Rhythm and Sound and Cerulean are being issued on vinyl for the first time ever. The band will also perform their S/T debut and Cerulean in full on fall tour (full dates below). A new full length record is in the works and slated for release in 2016.

Debuting on Sire Records in 1989,
The Ocean Blue achieved widespread acclaim, radio and MTV airplay. The band of four high schoolers from Hershey, Pennsylvania went on to do two more well-received records for Sire, the atmospheric Cerulean and alt-pop Beneath the Rhythm and Sound, and a fourth record for Mercury/PolyGram, See The Ocean Blue, before leaving the majors in the late 90s.

They did several independent releases in the 2000s, including Davy Jones Locker and Waterworks, and in 2013 released their first full length record in over 10 years, Ultramarine, on Korda Records, a new Minneapolis cooperative label that the band helped launch in late 2012.

A new full length record is in the works and slated for release in 2016.
