Ocean Colour Scene on track to Engine Shed
Ocean Colour Scene Iconic indie outfit Ocean Colour Scene are lined up to play at Lincoln’s Engine Shed during their 2010 UK tour.

The band, whose hit the Day We Caught The Train became an anthem for the Brit Pop generation, are on track to perform at the University of Lincoln venue on Tuesday 2 March 2010.

During an illustrious career, Ocean Colour Scene have clocked up eleven Top 20 singles and five Top 10 albums in the UK alone.

They scored a succession of hit singles at the height of the Brit Pop period in the late-1990s with tracks such as The Riverboat Song, You’ve Got It Bad and The Day We Caught The Train.

The band is currently recording a new, as yet untitled album at the legendary Rockfield studio (Oasis, The Stone Roses, and Black Sabbath), with esteemed producer Gavin Monaghan (Kings of Leon, Robert Plant ,The Editors, The Twang). The album is due for release on Monday 1 February 2010.

Their back catalogue includes tracks which will still be considered classics years from now. We're delighted to be one of the venues for their new tour and it should be exciting to hear their new material as well as their old hits."
