orgy-waad-cover-finalCritically-acclaimed alternative rock band are back and better than ever, to the delight of their die hard fans. And the band’s brand new single, “Wide Awake and Dead,” released nationally today, is sure to garner a whole crop of new devotees. Today fans can download “Wide Awake And Dead” via iTunes and other major digital retailers, or at www.orgymusic.com/wad/.

emerged in the music scene in 1998 with their incredible remake of New Order’s “Blue Monday.” The track sold over a million copies and built a worldwide audience for the band.

Fast track to present day, where original band founder and lead singer JAY GORDON has assembled a brand new band lineup and will continue to crank out ’s unique brand of ahead-of-its-time alternative rock music, beginning with the catchy, intense “Wide Awake and Dead.”

According to GORDON, “’Wide Awake and Dead’ is literally a song about most everyone around me on a daily basis. I am always asking people, ’Are you cool? You kind of look like your brain just fell out.’ People of Los Angeles in particular inspired me when I wrote the lyrics.”

After deciding to reform the band due to the demands of rabid ORGY fans, GORDON found himself with the task of finding new members. After careful deliberation, he selected lead guitarist CARLTON BOST, bassist NIC SPECK, drummer BOBBY AMARO and synth guitarist CREIGHTON EMRICK.

With these new members joining and combining their respective resumes to build a new and improved band, ORGY was transformed and set to reestablish itself in the alternative rock scene.

“It’s always difficult to replace any member of an original band,” reveals GORDON. “Fans don’t usually take too kindly to that, but it literally took about a week to decide to move forward once I really thought about it. Even though the lineup has changed, ORGY has really come a long way. I couldn’t be happier with the new lineup.”

ORGY will tour the States again on their second leg of “Wide Awake and Dead Tour 2014,” and will be hitting the road to support the launch of the single and EP. ORGY will continue to play in major cities throughout the country in 2014 and will be announcing a world tour in Europe and in Australia. Stay tuned for tour dates to be announced soon.
