The Orwells - Disgraceland

The Orwells are set to release their new album Disgraceland this coming June 3rd and we reached out to them to get a better look into the making of their sophomore record. The band has created plenty of buzz for themselves and this album by touring the nation with Twin Peaks and largely thanks to their famous Letterman performance, making Disgraceland something that everyone is keeping a close eye on in hopes that it delivers on the hype. At first glance, I can tell you that it definitely does.

I got a hold of guitarist Matt O’Keefe to talk about their writing process, the producers they worked with and the meaning behind calling it Disgraceland. You can stream the album on Spotify before its official release and read our full interview below. Continue Reading

Video: The Orwells – “I Wanna Be Your Dog” (Live In London)

posted by Oscar October 15, 2013

The Orwells have been on tour all year and during a short run in the Old World, the Chicago area band was captured playing a cover of a Punk classic, “I Wanna Be Your Dog.” The band played that song to close out their set at Lollapalooza and this clip shows them playing it once more but now in London.

Their version is a bit heavier and darker than the original, and seeing it be performed live in a small club makes it look ridiculously awesome. Check it out above.
