Formed in Los Angeles by British-born Joe Dexter (vocals, bass) - at only age 13 - ORANGE effortlessly blend punk-rock sensibilities with infectious pop melodies, a fusion that caught the attention of Rancid front-man
Tim Armstrong, who quickly snapped the band up to his influential Hellcat Records label. Two albums, "Welcome To The World Of…" and "Escape From LA" followed, introducing ORANGE to an appreciative punk-rock community and earning the band support slots on tour with punk heavy
hitters including UK Subs, The Misfits and The Adicts.
The Gavin MacKillop-produced "Phoenix" album followed and saw the band take a step further into the pop-punk arena, a genre that clearly
suits their optimistic lyrics, anthemic choruses and killer hooks. The addition of new band members Perry Ladish and Alec Gomez, has allowed them to broaden their influences and stretch their musical ability to create music that has instant appeal without losing any of its punk
edge. In fact, Gomez has engineered some hit albums from a diverse array of artists including Oasis, Hole and LCD Soundsystem.
Following the band's hit single "Revolution", which is the theme to the Cartoon Network series "Generation Rex" and its accompanying video game, the band toured the UK with Zebrahead and MC Lars, followed by a set of summer dates with ska-punk veterans [spunge] in 2010. The
incredible audience response and rapidly growing fanbase prompted the band to return to Britain in spring 2011 for another extensive tour, which once again showcased their boundless energy, raw talent and effortless connection with their audiences.
The "Dead Sexy" EP will be followed by a full-length studio album later in the year, which will feature a track co-written by Shawn Harris from The Matches. Joe has also signed a major music publishing deal with Benair-Churchill Publishing and is in the process of writing songs for
the upcoming installment of the Twilight movie franchise as well as numerous US commercials.
The video for their current single "Everything I Need", taken from the "Pheonix" album, is in rotation on Scuzz TV.
