Win Green River Ordinance's New CD ... TODAY!
In the mundane world of local law, a Green River Ordinance prohibits door-to-door sales without a homeowner’s prior permission. Fortunately, the band Green River Ordinance needn’t rely on such pedestrian peddling to sell its wares—its catchy anthems have drawn listeners on their own. The only door-to-door action is purely word of mouth, as one fan tells another what they’ve found.
Now, listeners everywhere will be able to discover what people in Fort Worth, Texas— the band’s hometown—already know, as EMI/Virgin releases Green River Ordinance’s Out Of My Hands on February 24, 2009.
The major-label bow follows independent debut The Beauty of Letting Go, a record that sold well online (reaching #2 at retailer Awarestore.com) and firmly put the band on the map. Following its release, Green River Ordinance won Artist of the Year, Rock Album of the Year and Song of the Year at the 2006 Fort Worth Music Awards, winning Artist of the Year a second time in 2008.
Regional fame landed the band opening slots with artists such as Bon Jovi, Collective Soul, Bowling For Soup, Simple Plan and many others, earning this young band (which formed in high school) the onstage experience and poise of a veteran act.
Out Of My Hands builds on the strengths that got the debut album noticed, with accessible, hook-laden songs suitable for cruising—windows down and radio blaring. Reminiscent of arena-ready, larger-than-life rock bands, Green River Ordinance expertly blends emotive vocals, guitars-to-11 and anthemic choruses to deliver moments certain to move crowds, with lighters (or phones) inevitably waving in the air.
