“The In Between dives into the same improvisatory bandwidth as Red-era King Crimson. Tough, fearless, and utterly driven, it turbo charges an outstanding set of spontaneous explorations with an expressive metal-etched velocity that marks a new and exciting point of departure for the Philadelphia-based power trio."
Sid Smith, Prog Magazine (UK)

With the new album by Orion Tango - The In Between, the band goes much deeper, darker, and heavier than any time in their history. Certainly their debut, Orion Tango and the much lauded sophomore release, The Apple of No, have their moments of heaviness, but as an improvising progressive power trio, they‘ve never moved this close to metal, progressive metal, doom metal, black metal, or whatever you want to call it—perhaps, even an aspect of punk ferociousness is present. It definitely goes there. It’s yet another color or force in the Orion Tango expanding palette. Orion Tango can conjure a lot. This band can and does go anywhere—their core is experimental in nature moving to free jazz, to ambient, to progressive, to blues and all of the mutations and unknown extremes. It’s hard to say where they won’t go. But this album is a testament and offering of Orion Tangos most powerful music for this planet at this time. This is dangerous music. According to the band it’s attempting to “break down all of the walls that stand in front of all of us in this world—Ukraine, the climate crisis, racism, the political crisis, the pandemic. We are in The In Between. We are releasing extreme optimism with these power chords, pummeling baselines, and slamming drums. Trying to manifest waves of positive energy and vibration in everyone to help us move forward. All of us are trying to find that better future. So we are hitting it as hard as we can with this record.”

Get Ready. It will take you there. Let it take you there.

Thanks so much for your support!
