“The playing is aggressively beautiful and propulsive while somehow seeming fragile, able to intricately penetrate small crevices as well as scale mountains.”- AllMusic

“Mock Orange is a band that refuses to quit. Having existed since the late-’90s, the band has weathered the collapse of labels, changes in its membership, and pressed on undeterred.”- AV Club


Revered Midwestern indie rockers Mock Orange just completed a tour of Japan with The Band Apart and now the Japanese genre benders are set to join Mock Orange as support on the upcoming west coast dates of the ‘Nines & Sixes’ Tour, which commemorates the 20th anniversary of their seminal album of the same name.

Check out this exclusive live video session of Mock Orange playing “All You Have,” recorded in Chicago:

Frontman Ryan Grisham was recently a guest on the Washed Up Emo Podcast, where he discussed the tour, the band’s legacy and much more. The chat can be streamed here:

Having been a band for over two decades, Evansville, IN’s Mock Orange have seen and done quite a bit throughout the years. They have released more than ten ever-evolving albums and EPs, touring the world over, and consistently amassing a devoted fanbase in the U.S., Europe, and especially Japan.

In 1998, Mock Orange released “Nines & Sixes”. This highly acclaimed record solidified their standing as an innovative, genre-blurring band and earned them a cult following that continues to grow.

Celebrating 20 years since its release, Mock Orange is bringing “Nines and Sixes” to the stage again, playing the record in its entirety. Dates include a stop at Gainesville, FL’s Fest 17 on October 28.
