By Stu Kelly / May 14, 2024

Connecticut-based Americana sensation Orebolo is making waves in the music industry as they unveil their highly anticipated debut studio album, The Chateau, accompanied by the release of their inaugural single, “Rockdale.” The trio, comprised of Rick Mitarotonda (vocals, guitar), Peter Anspach (vocals, guitar), and Jeff Arevalo (upright bass), has already built a fervent following with their electrifying live performances, and now they are ready to captivate audiences worldwide with their studio-recorded magic.

“Rockdale,” a cherished favorite among Orebolo enthusiasts, has been polished to perfection in the studio, offering listeners a refined yet authentic rendition of the beloved track. Recorded in the serene ambiance of guitarist/vocalist Rick Mitarotonda’s newly minted studio, affectionately dubbed “The Chateau,” the single showcases Orebolo’s signature acoustic charm and musical prowess. Produced by the esteemed D. James Goodwin, known for his work with luminaries such as Bob Weir, The Hold Steady, and Bonny Light Horsemen, “Rockdale” promises to be a soul-stirring testament to the band’s undeniable talent.

The announcement of The Chateau marks a significant milestone in Orebolo’s skyrocketing career. The trio, also members of the acclaimed indie-jam band Goose, has experienced a meteoric rise in popularity in recent months, propelled by their mesmerizing musicality and heartfelt performances. In 2024 alone, Orebolo treated fans to three consecutive sold-out shows at Port Chester, NY’s Capitol Theatre, demonstrating their ability to command a stage with ease and finesse. Additionally, their breathtaking oceanside performance at Playa Cancun, MX’s Dead Ahead, featuring guest appearances from music icons Bob Weir and Sturgill Simpson, further solidified their status as one of the most exciting acts in the Americana scene.

With The Chateau slated for release on June 7 via No Coincidence Records, Orebolo is poised to leave an indelible mark on the music landscape. Fans can expect an album brimming with soulful melodies, evocative lyrics, and the unmistakable warmth synonymous with the Orebolo sound. As anticipation mounts for the release, “Rockdale” is a tantalizing glimpse into the sonic tapestry that awaits listeners on Orebolo’s debut studio album.

Fans and new listeners can pre-order The Chateau on limited edition 180g turquoise Galaxy vinyl through the band’s online store. A black and cream Galaxy variant will also be available at retailers nationwide. Fans can catch Orebolo this summer at Chillicothe, IL’s Solshine Reverie (5/24-26) and Marshfield, MA’s Levitate Music Festival (7/5-7/7).
