About:

Comprised of childhood friends Joe Dexter (Vocals, Bass) and Jack Berglund (Guitars) along with Jon DeRing (Guitars) and Zak Glosserman (Drums), ORANGE was forged in 2002. Influenced by a vast array of bands including the Sex Pistols and Social Distortion among others, the group spent the next few years carefully crafting their own unique style of energetic and playful punk'n'roll. In 2004 the band surfaced to play local shows and record a demo. After playing a residency at the LA hotspot The Key Club, Orange caught the ear of Operation Ivy/Rancid mastermind Tim Armstrong, who signed them to his Hellcat label soon after. In 2005 ORANGE released their debut album, Welcome To The World of ..., which was critically acclaimed and widely accepted within the punk community.
