We are extremely excited to say Divide The Sea’s new album Man came out Tuesday, January 26, 2010 and feedback has been great thus far! Blood & Ink staff were able to travel to South Carolina for their CD release show and seeing them in their hometown of Greenville play to a sold out crowd was phenomenal! Oh, let’s not forget HM Magazine gave the album a 4/5 review, asserting “Divide The Sea’s fantastically produced Man… [combines] great musicianship with a powerful frontman.”

You can currently hear songs from Man on Divide The Sea’s Myspace at: www.myspace.com/dividethesea
