Four-piece grunge/pop band Black Ocean have this week announced their debut EP, which will be released on 15th July 2016. The band will launch the EP with a gig at 360 Club in Leeds on the same night.

The band have noted their key influences throughout the making of the EP as Nirvana's In Utero and Weezer's Pinkerton. "We wanted to keep it simple and to try capture the sound and energy of our live shows", explained guitarist Josh Lawson on the recordings.

The self-titled EP is now available for pre-order on bandcamp, with all purchases receiving an instant download of the first track 'Glow'.

Tickets for the launch night at the 360 Club are available now at Leeds Gig Tickets.
