Oceans Of Slumber’s new album, Starlight and Ash, has finally arrived on Friday (22nd) via Century Media Records. The Texas outfit’s overall fifth-full-length effort explores the group’s deeper side while musically showcasing a different direction. To celebrate the album’s arrival, the band unveiled a music video for the song “The Hanging Tree,” directed by Angela Herr and Bianca Greene for FirstSight Agency.


Vocalist Cammie Beverly comments on the track:

“An old childhood home, a frequently visited spot along the meadow, a closet we pass in our grandmother’s house, a tree in the town center that has scars from its terrible past…places hold memories and they never forget them even when buried under the changes of time.”


On the album, Cammie explains:

“The album ‘Starlight and Ash’ is scenery and stories inspired by characters, settings, and themes from the band’s (traumatic) childhood experiences. These encounters are woven into the lives and tales of individuals in a fictitious community living on the Gulf Coast.”
