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. Amir Derakh was immortalised in the Coal Chamber song Amir Of The Desert. He produced their debut album. Jay Gordon appeared on the follow up “Chamber Music”.

    Gave a listen to Wide Awake and Dead. It's not how I supposed it was but it feels nice to hear that they're back, I guess they've always wanted to make something like that but the Nu-Metal scene was huge when they started back in 1997.

    WAAD is actually really good. maybe there's hope after all. Maybe Jay shouldn't release shitty dubstep influenced tracks as teasers for the new album. Hopefully he'll decide they don't belong and just scrap 'em. Jay has such a unige voice that I would've bought it no matter what anyway. I do really miss the old line up though.

    there is a new...song. i think there is another coming soon.... i duno why they arent just releasing an album. i guess to build up anticipation and interest. a good strategy after being gone for ages, but i'd still rather hear a full album

    Wide Awake and Dead is soooo much better than the half-assed PSP stuff.

    I missed their music very much. So cool to hear them again. Wide Awake And Dead sounds quite up-and-coming!

    Seriously, anyone that thinks the new upcoming release sounds anything like Candyass or Vapour Transmission is just plain silly. It sounds like dubstep people. I know PSP was shite but it sounds a whole lot better than the newest one.

    For those interested. Creighton Emrick took the place of Ashburn Miller in Orgy. I'm a big fan of Creighton's work. Check out his band Vegas in Space, which is highly recommended to any Orgy fan, particularly the album "Infinite Infect". His music is available on spotify for those who don't have the albums.

    Revisiting PSP several years later... You know, it's really not that bad.
