THE TEA PARTY RELEASE THE OCEAN AT THE END, SEPTEMBER 08
NEW SINGLE THE BLACK SEA AVAILABLE WITH PRE-ORDER NOW18 AUGUST 2014 (Toronto, ON) – Canadian Rock trio THE TEA PARTY today announce the September 08 release of THE OCEAN AT THE END through Anthem/Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company. Pre-order begins today, the 10-year release date anniversary of their last full-length studio album, Seven Circles. Fans who order The Ocean At The End at iTunes now will also instantly receive The Black Sea. The Tea Party's original line-up of Jeff Martin, Stuart Chatwood, and Jeff Burrows reunited in 2011 for select Australian and Canadian live dates and their sense of artistic kinship inevitably led them back to the studio. Produced and engineered by Martin, mixed by Grammy-award-winning David Bottrill (Rush, Muse, Peter Gabriel, Tool) and recorded largely at Toronto’s Revolution Recording, The Ocean at the End contains some of the most streamlined music in The Tea Party’s career. “It’s a rock n’ roll record,” declares Martin, describing the outcome whose genesis began last year in Byron Bay, Australia, and eventually migrated to the trio’s original home base of Windsor, Ontario. “We started the writing process in Byron Bay, and songs like Brazil, Cass Corridor, Submission, and Water’s On Fire came out of that session,” he continues. “But where things got really exciting for us was when we jammed in Windsor: songs like The 11th Hour and L.o.C. came out and it was really rock n’ roll. We were having fun and not over-thinking it anymore. The water had passed under the bridge, and we’re three friends now. 'What do you guys want to do, rock? Okay, let’s go!'" Formed in 1990, The Tea Party have released seven studio albums, selling over two million copies worldwide, filling stadiums on the strength of anthemic hits such as The River, Sister Awake, Temptation, and Heaven Coming Down. The Tea Party will be touring Australia this October, with Canadian dates to be announced shortly.
