Rock supergroup ORBS have announced their first tour dates in six years. The band will be hitting the road in support of their forthcoming album, Past Life Regression, out July 15th. Fans can pre-order the album HERE and click to stream their new singles "Exploded Birds," "Dreamland II" and "Giving Tree Hanging Me."
"It's a special thing for us, we're celebrating this album and obviously some older songs," Dan Briggs told The Amalgam, "
it's just exciting to see what will happen in the future." Announcing their first string of tour dates since 2010, ORBS have dates set up and down the east coast, starting in South Carolina, hitting Virginia, North Carolina, New York, and Rhode Island. With more dates on the way, the band is excited to bring their new project to the stage. Dan Briggs said, "Adam and I have talked about how we don't understand how we're going to be able to contain ourselves emotionally on stage playing these songs because they've been this pipe dream for us for so many years now and it's finally really happening."
ORBS is the creative brainchild of Dan Briggs (of Between The Buried and Me), Ashley Ellyllon and Adam Fisher (of Fear Before The March of Flames). The trio first joined forces in 2010, releasing their debut project, Asleep Next To Science, with Equal Vision Records. In the six years since their inception, ORBS gained a steady fan base and released a two-track EP, These People Are Animals mixed by Ken Andrews whose previous collaborations include Failure and Paramore. ORBS have released three singles from the forthcoming album so far including "Dreamland II," "Exploded Birds" and "Giving Tree Hanging Me."
Recorded in North Carolina and California, Past Life Regression is a project six years in the making, and is not to be taken lightly. At its core, the album deals with the topics of reincarnation, death and the difficulties of living your life. "It wasn't intentional, I think it's just where my head was at, at the time." says Fisher. "The music was far darker than the last record so it was really easy to go to a dark place and touch on that stuff." Not only did Dan Briggs self produce the record, he is releasing it on his own imprint calledHogweed & Fugue Record, via Equal Vision Records. With this project, ORBS re-enters the music scene ready to perform for their fans for the first time in five years.
Past Life Regression is the second full release from Orbs, following their 2010 album Asleep Next to Science. For more information, please visit: https://www.facebook.com/orbsband
