Vancouver, Canada’s Bison are primed to release their first long-player in five years this July. Entitled You Are Not The Ocean You Are The Patient, it marks the first full-length to feature guitarist Shane Clark, formerly of 3 Inches of Blood, who joined following the release of 2012’s Lovelessness.
According to guitarist and vocalist James Farwell:
It was important that the songs fit together to tell a bit of a story,a story of a new life and escaping the city, while still being tethered to it. Life is a constant fight, and though I have taken the fight to a more natural and beautiful place, that struggle persists. This is an album of daily living. It is for everyone.
You Are Not The Ocean You Are The Patient will be released July 7 in the United States on Pelagic Records. It can be pre-ordered here.
