Orange Sky is gearing up for a new U.S. tour in support of their new album.
Orange Sky rose to major status on their home island by supporting the likes of visiting artists such as Skid Row, Hatebreed and Ludacris. Becoming increasingly popular throughout the Caribbean, the Trinidad and Tobago Ministry of Tourism officially named the band International Ambassadors. In 2005, the band toured supporting Adema, followed by two tours supporting Yngwie Malmsteen throughout the U.S. in 2005 and 2006. With a musical style that blends modern-edged metallic rock infused with reggae, the band took much of 2007 to develop and record their album, Dat Iz Voodoo.
Orange Sky will hit the road this year with a summer tour across the U.S. and an upcoming CD release via StarCity Recording Company.
