Video: David Letterman Discusses The Orwells’ ‘Late Show’ Performance

posted by Oscar January 28, 2015

One of our favorite bands The Orwells made a splash when they made their American TV debut on Lettermanso much so that David Letterman himself still remembers it fondly. While appearing on last night’s Regis Philbin-hosted episode of the Late Late Show, Letterman and band leader Paul Shaffer were discussing their favorite moments and went as far as pointing out that Orwells performance as one of those that stand out above the rest.

The whole story and how he talks about it shows the impact that a great band with a brilliant sound can have on people. Letterman tops it off saying “After all these years, something like that really tickles me,” Letterman said of the performance.” See it below. Continue Reading

Video: The Orwells: “The Righteous One” Live on ‘Letterman’

posted by Oscar June 11, 2014

Last night The Orwells made their way back to the Late Show with David Letterman to promote the release of their new album, Disgraceland. The song of choice this time around was “The Righteous One,” which has an excellent buildup with an infectious bass line that worked perfectly on the small screen stage and impressed Letterman once more.

Video: The Orwells – “North Ave.”

posted by Oscar June 2, 2014

The Orwells are set to release their second album, Disgraceland tomorrow, June 3 and today the Elmhurst natives have unveiled their new video for “North Ave” via NPR. The video, much like the song itself, is very retro with its generations old handheld camera footage showcasing the suburban “disgraceland” they are surrounded by and call home.

See it above.

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 – “Who Needs You” Live on ‘Letterman’

posted by Oscar January 16, 2014

The Orwells made their American network TV debut on none other than Late Show with David Letterman. That performance, to say the least, was badass! The guitars were sounding a tad bit more distorted to give it a more raw/dirtier finish and lead singer Mario Cuomo played the part of a classic “frontman” like I hadn’t seen in years. Letterman himself was more than impressed and so was Paul Schaffer, so stick around till the very end of the video to see their reaction.

Don’t miss them when they tour the country this coming March-April. Details HERE.
