Oceans Of Slumber is now streaming “Where Gods Fear to Speak”, the first single off their upcoming (currently announced) sixth album. The single features a music video directed by Josh Vargas, and comes ahead of Oceans Of Slumber‘s tour with Lacuna Coil and New Years Day this May.

The album’s concept explores organized religion, specifically Oceans Of Slumber vocalist Cammie Beverly and her childhood home being divided over her father’s dedication to the Institute of Divine Metaphysical Research and her mother becoming a Jehova’s Witness. “Regardless of which one you believe, organized religion makes us suffer in order to please this heavenly deity”, Cammie said. “But the payoff is only an illusion.”

On the single itself, she added: “I’ve always wanted to do death growls. ‘Where Gods Fear to Speak’ presented the perfect opportunity. Mixing harsh vocals in with my cleans speaks to that tug of war between pleasure and pain, though there’s a freedom that comes with pushing my voice past its perceived breaking point.”
