ORBS RELEASE NEW SINGLE “DREAMLAND II”
NEW ALBUM PAST LIFE REGRESSION TO BE RELEASED JULY 15th
Dynamic super group ORBS have announced the release of their latest single, “Dreamland II.” The track comes from the band’s forthcoming album Past Life Regression, slated for release on July 15th, 2016. Fans can pre-order the album here.
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.
“Dreamland II is a good example of the way we like to arrange songs,” says bassist Dan Briggs, “It mixes in mine and Ashley’s classical background with the big piano cadenza that leads into the final chorus.” Lyrically the track grabs the listener’s attention from the start. “I based the song off wondering what it is that gives us fetishes and forms us sexually,” says vocalist Adam Fisher, “It also dives into my battles with sleep paralysis. I do not sleep with a knife next to my bed anymore. Now I have a Louisville slugger.”
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.” With each track, the mood shifts: from the playful energy of “Death Is Imminent (However, Relative)” to the remorseful piano driven “Giving Tree Hanging Me.”
Not only did Dan Briggs self produce the record, he is releasing it on his own imprint called Hogweed & 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.
