2017 was kind enough, acceptance-wise. The last quarter was a regenerative period for the band, mending relations and reacquainting ourselves with the music until it feels like home again. We found ourselves active once more, in the gigging circuit doing bar tours, getting invited to mini festivals, and random guestings and corporate events in and out-of-town. Heck, we even flew to the Middle East for a couple of shows and manage to release a new single and launch a crowdfunding campaign for an album project. I guess we can confidently say we are ready for 2018. Quoting Alan Watts: “We have faith that something really good will come out of all this in the end like the phoenix out of the fire.”
We are deeply grateful for the support of our families and friends, especially to our old and new fans. You helped us return to life after what seemed like a decade-long paralytic stroke. We won’t let you down this time as we discover new horizons and build more sturdy bridges. At the end of the day and of each passing year, it’s all about Love and Music.
Cheers to a New Year and another chance for us to get it right!
14 years ago, we recorded our debut album. It was released independently and came out with only 1,000 copies in CD and was shelved by our former label after a couple of years. As our first album project after recently reforming, we are heading back to the studio to re-record the whole album in time for its 15th Anniversary and we want to invite you to be part of this recreation. As a bonus, we plan to include a couple of unreleased tracks and pledgers will also receive an advance digital copy of our brand new single “Lovers Go, Lovers Come.”
We’ve grown so much as musicians in the past 10 years with different bands and projects and this is a way for us to look back where we started, and improve whatever we can on the record. Overall, we are just excited to share this with our fans. It has been a long time coming.
Each week we will be posting a video and give you an inside look of who we are, the making of this record and the story of each song. We want our fans to be part of the release every step of the way. So come join us and pledge and get the full Orange & Lemons experience.
