Rock supergroup Orbs have released the visuals for their single, "Giving Tree Hanging Me." Watch the video HERE via New Noise Magazine. The original track comes from the band's new album Past Life Regression, released on July 15th. Fans can purchase the album HERE or stream it in full HERE via Team Rock. The band will be touring the east coast in support of the new project, marking their first live performances in over five years.
"It was really important to us to find a way to bring some of the reincarnation story from the album to life," bassist Dan Briggs told New Noise Magazine. The remorseful, piano-driven "Giving Tree Hanging Me" is one of the more emotional songs on the band's new album. Briggs explained that, "The tree man plays an important visual in the album and we found a way to bring it to life with mixed media and great drawings." The drawings, created by Thomas Sara, fuel the creative vision developed by Briggs and director Richie Valdez (All Shall Perish, The Red Chord). "Valdez is a true creative warrior, I couldn't be happier with the result."
"I wanted to convey the guilt we carry when we affect someone with our selfish actions," vocalist Adam Fisher told Substream Magazine on the original track, "The main character can't forgive himself and though he keeps travelling he can't seem to move on." On the composition of the track, bassist Dan Briggs added that, "the big blowout at the end of the song does feel like a funeral dirge, with the character accepting his place in the forest as his final resting place."
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. Past Life Regression, self-produced by Dan Briggs, was released 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.
