Biography

Los Angeles, United States (1997 – present)

The members of Orgy — Jay Gordon (vocals), Amir Derakh (guitar-synths), Ryan Shuck (guitar), Paige Haley (bass), and Bobby Hewitt (drums) — have described their music as “Death Pop” in the past, but few agree on what to call their blend of rock, metal and electronica.

The band was formed in Los Angeles, California in 1997 and signed to Korn’s Elementree record label soon after. They quickly released their first album, “Candyass.” Soon after, they performed the duty of opening act on the Family Values tour in ‘98, where they were introduced to many for the first time. Around then, they had their first hit with a cover of New Order’s Blue Monday, followed with successful singles for Stitches and Fiction (Dreams In Digital). After the release of their second album, “Vapor Transmission”, they left Elementree records, and largely disappeared from the public eye.

Bobby briefly joined Snake River Conspiracy for a while, and Jay formed his own independent record label, D1 Music, with his father. In 2004, Orgy’s third album, “Punk Statik Paranoia,” was released under D1, but with little to no radio play or recognition from the mainstream music media.

Ryan and Amir have also started a side project known as Julien-K, with a much more electronic focus, and have released a song featuring the vocals of Chester Bennington of Linkin Park on the recent Underworld Evolution soundtrack. They have since formed the project Dead By Sunrise with Bennington.
