Playing together since Reagan was President (almost), the members of Tampa area based Orbit Orange continue to release hard rocking melodic tunes with no ego attached. This release was recorded with Tom Morris at Morrisound Studios and mastered at Criteria/Fullersound in Miami with no expenses spared. Fans have compared Orbit Orange to Alice in Chains, Creed and Days of the New in describing Dave Dennis's vocal style on this album. Orbit Orange consists of Dave Dennis-Vocals/Guitar, Dan Whitman-Bass/Vocals and Jeffro Stahl on Drums. Formerly called "Uncle Sally", these guys rocked Florida for years releasing highly acclaimed material and securing a really bad indie record deal in the mid 90's due to bad management. They've shared the stage with bands ranging from Soundgarden and Marilyn Manson (and the spooky kids) to the Warren Brothers (friends of ours back when they were a rock band) and were the opening act for Saigon Kick in their heyday. They've played every cockroach infested, whore hangin seedy bar in Florida to 20,000 people plus shows like 98 Rocks Livestock Festival (3 times) and received extensive radio play from their previous releases. You may ask yourself why wait to release the Orbit Orange album (1997), and the answer is two-fold. First, they were extremely jaded by the previously mentioned "record deal" and never shopped the material, and secondly life happens. However, they have never stopped playing and have a re-invigorated interest in getting the music out there for people to enjoy. You won't be disappointed. Keep your eye out for the next release. Orbit Orange is heading back into the studio in September to begin recording their next album with Tom Morris at Morrisound Studios in Tampa, Florida.
