The title of Fifteen, Green River Ordinance's first studio album in three years, has a dual meaning for the hard-working quintet. In addition to marking the fifteen years that have passed since the five bandmates first began making music together, fifteen was also the average age of the band members when the group formed. In the decade and a half since they first convened in their hometown of Fort Worth, Texas, Green River Ordinance has built a potent body of effortlessly accessible, instantly memorable music, while winning the loyalty of a fiercely loyal fan base that's stuck with the band through thick and thin. Green River Ordinance's thrilling evolution continues on Fifteen, which matches irresistibly infectious melodies and insightful, forthright lyrics with rootsy, rousing musical flights and soaring vocal harmonies. Fifteen arrives at a pivotal juncture in the Green River Ordinance's career. Having achieved a hard-won mainstream breakthrough with their 2009 album Out of My Hands and the hit singles Come On and On Your Own, the band grew uncomfortable with the contradictions of a changing music industry and the compromises required by an outdated business model. The band approached the making of Fifteen in a manner designed to inspire the band's creative impulses. The band cut tracks for Fifteen in separate sessions with three notable producers—Paul Moak, Rick Beato and longtime GRO collaborator Jordan Critz—in three different cities. The band recorded many of its performances live in the studio, capturing the musicians' vibrant chemistry.
Having come up with their most accomplished album to date, Green River Ordinance are looking forward to reconnecting with their still-rabid fan base and taking Fifteen on the road, strengthened by the lessons they've learned over the band's eventful lifespan.
