Ocean Grove are kicking off a new chapter of their musical journey today with the release of “Ask For The Anthem.” The track, which was produced by drummer Sam Bassal and co-written with studio member Running Touch, premiered on triple j radio earlier this week with fans being treated to a quirky and captivating visual today. Fans can watch “Ask For The Anthem” HERE.
The video, directed and edited by the band’s longtime collaborator Thomas Elliott, features Ocean Grove at their creative best. “We pushed our own limits of experimentation on this track,” says Dale. “It is by far the most time and energy we have invested into any one song. Just so you know, this is not a song about being cool and getting the girl. Look closer.”
The band has also announced today that Twiggy Hunter is their new bass player with Dale Tanner becoming the full-time frontman of the group.
While the band toured in the US recently with metal core giants August Burns Red, fans in Australia will be lucky to catch the first live performances of “Ask For The Anthem” later this month when they hit the road with Hands Like Houses.

Hailing from Melbourne, Ocean Grove have quickly ascended to the top of Australia’s heavy music scene in recent years, with their debut album ‘The Rhapsody Tapes’ in 2017 debuting at #5 on the ARIA charts and landing triple j feature album prior to its release. The group have toured globally with the likes of Limp Bizkit, Northlane, and Crossfaith, as well as mainstage festival appearances at Splendour In The Grass andAustralia’s inaugural Download Festival, and show no signs of slowing down in 2019.
