SCHED* SXSW 2011 has ended
avatar for Orbit


Orbit's SXSW set coincides with the band's long awaited release of "the lost album" on A&M Records. Boston's Orbit was formed in 1994 by principals Jeff Robbins (guitar, vocals) and Paul Buckley (drums). They released their first CD La Mano on their own label, Lunch Records, in 1995 and signed to A&M Records. Orbit's debut record, Libido Speedway (released in January 1997) spawned the Top 30 Modern Rock smash "Medicine" and earned them an acclaimed spot on that year's Lollapolooza Festival, landed them on MTV, and played over 400 shows crisscrossing the United States. But the story of the band lies in the band's second album for A&M Records ' Guide to Better Living. GTBL was completed prior to the Polygram / Universal's merger and the band was dropped in early in 1999. Besides a handful of promo copies fans were lucky enough to get their hands on, the album has never seen the light of day ' until now. In March of 2011, in true coup de theatre, Universal Records will finally release Orbit's second album, Guide to Better Living (now titled "the lost album"). In conjunction with the album's release, Orbit will be playing exclusive live dates in Boston, New York, Los Angeles, and at this year's SXSW with the band's original line-up, Guitarist/Vocalist Jeff Robbins, Bassist/Producer Wally Gagel and Drummer Paul Buckley. www.orbitband.com ORBITOGRAPHY: ALBUMS œLibido Speedway-A&M Records, 1997 œXLR8R- Lunch Records, 2001 œ(the lost album) ' Universal Records, 2011 EPs œLa Mano Lunch Records, 1995 œMedicine EP -A&M Records January 1997 (Promo only) œWestern Medicine EP & 7 -A&M/Lunch Records-February 1997 œTonedeaf EP- Lunch Records, September 1999
