Hey guys – what have you been up to for the last few months?

The last few months, ADO has been in a rebuilding phase and working really hard with our 2 new members John and Jason. We have been putting the finishing touches to the mixing of our album, “Parhelion”,  and writing tons of new stuff to get our new chemistry down. This new stuff is insane! 

How has 2012 been for you? Highlights? Any particular low points?

2012 has been very eventful for us as much as it has been slow. Low points are the loss of founding members and the constant prolonging of our next release because of other issues as well. The highlights are the gaining of 2 of the strongest and most musical members we have ever had which has made us tighter than we have ever been as a group and literally we are writing our most brutal and beautiful stuff ever. I can’t wait for people to hear were we are taking our sound. Another highlight was opening for Between The Buried and Me / Periphery and opening for that near sold out crowd.

We’re on the final run up to Christmas and the end of the year – what are you busy cramming into the final few weeks?

The final mix/master/release of “Parhelion”!

What releases from 2012 have you been particularly impressed with? 

Personally I have been all over the new releases from Arctic Sleep (Arbors), Devil Sold His Soul (Empire of Light), Deftones (Koi No Yokan), and Meshuggah (Koloss).

What do the band want from Santa for Christmas?

A perfect 2013 for ADO!….and to open for Meshuggah!!!

2013 - what can we expect from A Dark Orbit?

You can expect the best year from ADO! We are releasing the new record (finally), working on all new music and hopefully another new release by the end of 2013. We also are planning many weekend shows outside of St. Louis and we plan to make it back to the UK in the Summer! We hope people get tired of hearing about us! 

Final message for fans?

Please don’t forget about us or give up on us. Many things are out of our control….but trust us…we are coming! FULL STEAM AHEAD!
