Electric Sea is the thirty-fifth studio album by avant-garde guitarist Buckethead. It is the sequel to his 2002 release “Electric Tears”.

The album was announced on December 20, 2011 via City Hall Records, and contains 11 tracks.[1] The album was scheduled to be released on February 21, 2012 but fans started receiving their copies more than a month early.

Track #2, “Beyond the Knowing” is a re-working of “What Kind of Nation”, and is probably recognised as the oldest song on the album, as Buckethead’s earliest known performances of it date back to 2001 onstage with Guns N' Roses.
