This week marks the release of On The Ocean, the new EP from iconic alt-pop outfit Guster. This 6 song collection features previously unreleased tracks as well as a few acoustic versions and remixes of songs that will be familiar to Guster fans. While the EP is available from your traditional digital outlets such as itunes and amazon, the band will hold true to their progressive nature, making physical copies of the album only available from independent retailers and at the shows themselves.
Guster has been growing their cult-like fanbase for over 15 years now, and as evident by their latest album Easy Wonderful, they are only getting better. The band feels the release of Easy Wonderful marked a turning point in their career, and believe they have emerged from the process as “stronger players, writers and record makers”.
Below is a list of the tour dates for Guster’s summer run with Jack’s Mannequin. Make sure you find your way to the show when they’re in your town, and experience for yourself the effect “feeling more energized about our music and playing together than ever” has had on the band’s already legendary live performance.
