New Album Update! – Nov 2012
We are proud to announce that we are just a few months away from finishing our 2nd full length studio album. We have been diligently working on this album for the last few years.
Nothing has been held back in terms of production, it features an insane amount of instruments and mind-blowing performances from players around the world. Tight compositions, wild improvisations, complex horn and string arrangements, bombastic rhythm sections, unorthodox orchestrations, film noir, blaring guitars, angelic vocals, ambient textures...it's all there. So we hope you are ready to take a ride into uncharted sonic territory.
There's no official release date set but we plan on doing a full US tour in support of this album, so make sure to look out for OTC in 2013.
Announcing: Our first show after a 2-year hiatus, with a brand new lineup and new material! Playing with amazing guitarist Tim Young and his group The Lap Band.
Next Studio Album in the Works – Sep 2009
OTC's second studio album is in the works right now. It features some of the same musicians that appear on the first release but has many more collaborations with musicians from the local Seattle music scene. Legendary musicians such as Alan Bishop, Eyvind Kang, Joe Doria, Dave Abramson, Steve Moore and Mike Stone are just a few of the names which will appear on this new release. The material on this upcoming record is somewhat similar to the debut record in that it contains influences from wide gamut of sources. Cinematic, film noir, heavy surf, eastern jazz, ambient rock and european folk are just a few of the genres which will converge on this new release. We strived to achieve a much more organic sound on this record by actually tracking it live to 2-inch analog tape directly following our U.S tour last May. So please sit tight because this one will be worth the wait...
New Tour! - Mar 2009
Orange Tulip Conspiracy is back at it again with a full North American tour scheduled for this May. OTC features members of Secret Chiefs 3 and Estradasphere; including guitarist Jason Schimmel, longtime Estradasphere saxophone wizard John Whooley and madman drummer Lee Smith. Now with members from Seattle's avant music scene this group will melt your face off. Coming to a city near you.
