Hailing from the suburban mill town of Clinton, Massachusetts, ORANGE ISLAND were once a household name during the late ’90’s and early ’00’s post-hardcore scene. Though they were often mislabeled as emo, a more accurate description of their sound would be abrasive, yet mature, indie-rock with an astute understanding of pop melodicism.
During put out albums with Triple Crown and Rise Records and toured with The Movielife, Taking Back Sunday, and other luminaries of the era.
One Night Stay combines melodic hardcore, complex guitar interplay with lots of pop-influenced choruses and deeply somber lyrics that focus on the darker sides of life. While out-of-print for the last 15 years, the album sees a reissue, and release on vinyl for the first time, via Iodine Recordings on September 30. It is fully remastered and features production by Matt Squire (Taking Back Sunday, Thrice, and The Used). Order it here.
