Fresh off of the success of their sold out Contagion Across The Nation tour, Chicago deathcore heavyweights, OCEANO are pleased to announce the Contaminating The Coast tour. Sponsored by AMP magazine and running throughout the month of January, the Contaminating The Coast tour will see the year's heaviest Billboard charting act get in front of their rabid western fans who have been waiting a long time for the band's return. Trekking along with OCEANO will be their friends, FOR THE FALLEN DREAMS, UPON A BURNING BODY, THE GREAT COMMISSION and I THE BREATHER. The full list of dates for this January tour will be announced soon at http://myspace.com/oceano and http://facebook.com/oceanometal.

OCEANO's new album, CONTAGION landed the Chicago deathcore heavyweights at number 163 on the Billboard Current Artist Chart in its first week of release. The band also debuted on the Billboard Heatseekers chart at number 3.
CONTAGION is now out in North America. Produced by Zeuss (MUNICIPAL WASTE, THE ACACIA STRAIN, HATEBREED, SHADOWS FALL), the new album is about a government-born virus that becomes an epidemic and spreads chaos amongst the population. CONTAGION is a major step forward for OCEANO. Their signature breakdowns and inhuman heaviness is still intact, but the band's traditional death metal influence now shines through more than ever, leading to a stronger melding of old school and modern extremities.
