Ozric Tentacles New Release 'Sunrise' Festival Due May 26, 2008

Ozric Tentacles have recorded an unbelievable 25 albums in the past 25 years but are relatively unheard of, despite their groundbreaking Psychedelic music. They hail from Somerset, England, and have sold a million or so albums, by hook and by crook, but have never had music industry support.

The amazing thing about Ozric Tentacles is that they bridge the gap, a long one, between 60's psychadelia and the psychadelic techno/rave scene, yes thats right, eastern themes, unusual time signatures, guitars, flutes, esoteric song titles (eg: Chewier, Clockdrops, Spirals in Hyperspace) PLUS the thumping baselines loved by people who are too young to know who the Move, Vanilla Fudge or the Blue Magoos are.......

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the band. To mark the date, they are releasing Ozric Tentacles - 'Sunrise Festival', recorded last year at the Sunrise Celebration Festival in Somerset
Original Keyboardist Joie Hinton, and former drummer, Merv Pepler appear for the first time in twelve years.

Released Date May 26th. Pre-Order with Spin CD's
