"Brutal, fast, and unrelenting rock that confronts and entertains with hardcore energy." - Bernard Baur: Music Connection Magazine
"One band stood out. One band from Los Angeles blew my fucking mind.
H Is Orange." - Josh, LocalMusicScenes.com, Eat'M conference
"You ever listen to a local band and think they should already be signed? To a major? H is Orange is a pretty exciting example of this."
- Porktartare.com/sound reviews
The band h is orange consists of Guy Staniar on drums, Troy Brittain on guitar, Marcel Blanco on bass, Jay Skinner on guitar/laptop and Sam Nelson on vocals. The band to date has successfully and independently completed four regional tours, distributed five-song e.p. "Be Silent and Know", acquired national radio play and film soundtrack inclusion, and performed opening slots for major label acts throughout the United States.
The h is orange sound is built on an aggressive hard rock foundation complimented by melodic textures and smart, well-crafted lyrics. Their closest musical references are the A Perfect Circle, Deftones, and Filter but reviewers have also compared them to "U2 with a fork in their ass".
Their unique and powerful sound - combined with an explosive, emotional live show - has made them stand out from the crowd; in fact, they were named by Music Connection Magazine in December 2002 as one of the "Top 100 Unsigned Bands."
With just two and a half years together, h is orange has firmly established their musical mark, but continue to evolve, with plans for a full-length CD of new recordings to be released in summer 2003. They plan to share the new songs with their fans throughout the country via a national tour in the fall.
Thanks for listening.
