Forming within the growing Los Angeles Indie/Experimental scene, The Color Turning conceived a project that pulled from an eclectic pallet of modern and experimental rock. The band blended the power and emotion of Southern Californias indie scene while using European ambient rock instrumentation and arrangements to contextualize and broaden the scope of expression drawn from their creative manifestations. After solidifying their line up and a handful of songs, the band was ready for their live debut.
Curious as to how thirsty ears would receive their conceptualized blend, The Color Turning began playing local shows to only be encouraged by a strong reception and a dedicated following. The eclectic influences displayed in each song lent the band to perform with a wide variety of bands and musicians. Invited to support Plain White T's, Dashboard Confessional, Hello Goodbye, The Spill Canvas, Thrice, Melee, and many others, the band began to see an overwhelming fan base with their captivating live performances. It was one of these performances at the Van's Warped Tour in Los Angeles that caught the attention of Something Corporate's Josh Partington.
Partington offered the band a release though his label, Random Play Music and the band was in the studio and recording their first EP, Our Currency is Time. The EP brought the band to a new frontier of fans and propelled them into being a favorite in both the Los Angeles and Orange Country music scenes. Inspired by the band's high-energy shows and rising success, German Director Julian Reich approached The Color Turning to direct their first music video, "This Is How That Feels".
Exposure from the video (gaining attention and support from MTV) and their reputation for their electric live shows found the band prominent figures and promising leaders in Los Angeles. The band pushed forward, harnessing the past year's momentum and entering the studio to record their next EP. Antidote would be released in 2005, creating a vision that portrayed maturation and precision within their brand of Indie/Experimental Rock.
Antidote utilized a variety of elements only hinted by the band in the past. Always accessible, the dark brooding guitars, big piano, and sweeping intros amalgamated with ambient textures and unconventional song structures demonstrated curious promise and highlighted the band into a focus amongst the current independent music scene. The Color Turning was firmly placing a their claim into modern music- there to nurture their bold artistic talents was Scott Weiland's Softdrive Records.
Signing the band in 2007, the band hit the studio and a string of dates. Reception was overwhelming. After playing tour dates with Stone Temple Pilots and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, the band brought in the New Year as direct support for Stone Temple Pilots on their KROQ New Years Eve 08/09 Club Nokia Performance. Following the celebration, the band moved forward with 5 West Coast dates supporting Scott Weiland and his solo endeavor. After witnessing the success of these prominent shows, The Color Turning plans to release their Me Versus Me EP in May '09 (supporting their first single, "Me Versus Me") in anticipation of their first full length LP Good Hands Bad Blood set for release by Softdrive/New West/Sony/Red on Aug 4th, 2009.
