We are thrilled to announce that our friends The Innocence Mission are joining Korda! And we will be releasing their first full length record in 5 years (Korda 014) on October 17! The guys in The Ocean Blue have a long and deep friendship with Don & Karen of The Innocence Mission that goes back to some of each band’s first shows in Pennsylvania and their major label debut records on Sire and A&M. The Innocence Mission‘s new record is a beautiful work that we can’t wait to share with you. Here is a video of a track off their 2010 release, My Room In The Trees.
