If you live in California around the Botega Bay area around tune in to KWTF October 24th and 25th to hear "Mr. Moneymaker" hit the airwaves this weekend! 

every week on air .. 3 times .. via http://www.KWTF.net/
Bodega Bay / California / USA
Friday at 11 PM > Saturday at 7am and 3 PM (also online)
California time

These past couple days Scott and Jason finished tracking the final song, "Skin" with Eric Delegard to be on THE ORANGE's forthcoming album. Again, an apology for the delay on the release but a great new song seems worth the wait. "Skin" is a solid number that guest stars Buddy Neighbors laying down sweet blues guitar riffs throughout. The tune really sounds amazing. The Orange should be finishing up the whole record next week and are looking at an early Spring 2015 release now.

In other news both "James Bond" and "Mr. Moneymaker" have been making the rounds on several FM radio stations in both Spain and Germany again!

   For all of our German friends and American friends visiting Europe, tune in to Lord Litter's Magical Music Box Radio show on Radio Marabu European Network, Berlin Germany. Mr. Lord Litter has heard The Orange and happens to enjoy our ode to celebrity culture, "James Bond". Even better the, "naughty words" don't have to be edited on European radio stations! Scott can finally say all the bad words he wants to without those ugly splices interupting the songs. To listen in the States through web cast go here: www.radio-marabu.de
   Also, the Northern California based station KWTF will feature, "Mr. Moneymaker" too on Lord Litter's International Magical Music Box Radio Show.  A little closer to home and also available to listen to here: www.KWTF.net

   In other news we have decided to go ahead and record the new Orange song, "Skin" adding it to our  record releasing this fall. We've had great reception of that song and have time to record one more for the album ....so we figured, why the hell not? The rest of the songs are completely mixed and finished and waiting to be sent to either Los Angeles or New York to be mastered. We are trying to decide who should master them. Sterling sound in New York has mastered records by everyone from Prince to The Vines to The Foo Fighters. Most recently they did The Horrors new album (which is amazing) Luminous and I love it. On the other coast of things Tom Baker in Los Angeles has worked with an amazing group of bands and mastered records by Stone Temple Pilots, 30 Seconds To Mars and Nine Inch Nails.  In the next 3 or 4 weeks we will be making a decision and going with it so we can finally get this record out and in stores... and in your hands!

                                    (The Orange at The Silverlake Lounge,  Los Angeles CA)

  After our trip back from Los Angeles we have more or less been taking a break from things. We came home and headlined The Double-Wide with our good friends Babe. Thank you to everyone who came out.  Then Scott, Melissa, Dan and Buddy did a great acoustic show at The Mohawk in Austin with a cool new band called Sonic Underground. That was a great show because of the intimate environment and the great group of old friends from Austin that we had a chance to see. A  flat tire at 4AM on the way back to Dallas from Austin was a real pain in the ass though. Thank god The Waffle House was open. Los Angeles was cool, and the crowd was great but I think we'll prefer playing New York next time we hit a coast. The Viper Room was awesome and it was interesting to see Scott Weiland's bass player there. He's a cool guy. Then Scott and Kirk had a chance to meet Priscilla Presley at the Rainbow Bar and Grill on The Sunset Strip and she was quite nice. That's really about it for that trip.

                                   (Lines of Los Angeles By Scott Tucker: Oil on Canvas, 2014)

  Scott has completed a new collection of paintings and sculptures based on both experiences and songs of THE ORANGE over the past 8 years. This collection has been slated to be shown at Circuit 12 Gallery on Dragon Street in Dallas this November 2014.  The Orange will be performing a few songs acoustic at the gallery. More information on the art show will be posted in the next month.

Umm, yea...

Well, tomorrow morning I'm packing it up and heading to California with my sister with a bunch of guitars and clothes in the trunk for a week of fun. I'm stoked to say the least. I've driven to New York before and from what I gather Los Angeles is about the same distance. I want to be sure and get a good picture of the desert, see the coast, hang out at the beach and of course... play an awesome show, shoot a music video and generally vibe out. I need a vacation... a sojourn of sorts.  I know this is sort of a working vacation with THE ORANGE but come on, we're going to have a ball. The rest of THE ORANGE will be flying in on Sunday giving Melissa and I Saturday to check out Disneyland. Funny enough, I've never actually been to California before.  If you're in the area or a long lost friend I haven't seen in 10 years, hit me up and we'll play catch up. If you have any suggestions of totally kick ass places I should go when I'm there don't hesitate to tell me! We are playing at the Silverlake Lounge on Sunset Blvd this coming Tuesday May 27th. I love long road trips.
