Oceana, whose new record Birtheater came out less than a month ago, have decided to call it quits.

The band release this statement on their MySpace page:

"We know a lot of rumors have been circulating around about us.
We’re sorry we left you hanging so long on this blog.
But unfortunately the rumors are true. Oceana has broken up.
We apologize to all of our fans. You are amazing and are the only ones who made this worth while. We love you.
Thanks to everyone who picked up our new cd. We all put our heart and soul into birtheater and are very proud of the album.

This breakup has nothing to do with any one member. We’re all best friends and we all sat down and talked this through. It’s not that we are not happy with the response from the new album. We knew the change would be a bit rocky and our kind of music isn’t exactly whats popular right now. A lot of kids would rather listen to songs riddled with breakdowns and over auto-tuned vocals. That is exactly why we appreciate our fans so much, you guys aren’t just going with the trend. We all decided that our hearts were in different places at this time in our lives. We’re all young and we guarantee this won’t be the last you hear of us. Maybe you’ll get five new bands out of the deal.

Again we apologize for letting anyone down and we hope you will all support us in our future endeavors.

We love you all and thanks for making this amazing."
