Electronic rock icons ORGY recently announced their upcoming “Bring Your Army” tour featuring support from MotograterBrand of Julez and the Crowned, kicking off on August 17 in Salt Lake City, UT. Joining the band on this tour will be their two new members – multi-talented guitarist, singer and producer Ilia Yordanov, and drummer, electronic music producer and DJ Ryan Browne.

New ORGY guitarist Ilia Yordanov (pronounced ileeah) was born in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, and grew up in San Diego, CA and Seattle, WA. Ilia began playing shows at age 13 with numerous bands until assembling his own band, Red Museum, in 2006. The band went on to release four EPs. Ilia moved to Los Angeles in 2008 and has been living and performing there for the past 10 years so he could focus on his acting career, and has predominantly remained a solo artist, producing and engineering his own musical work. Additionally, Ilia directed the video for his single, “Fire in the Middle”, released in 2016. Ilia has also supervised and composed music for film. In addition to music, Ilia regularly performs stand-up at The Comedy Store, and has self-published a book titled, Dirty Mirror Talk.

LA native Ryan Browne grew up playing drums in bands and took his playing to the professional level at 15 by playing for Jive records’ pop duo, Axiz. Ryan attended Berklee College of Music (Boston, MA) and studied drum set, Afro Caribbean hand percussion, music production, engineering and music business. Upon his early graduation, he accepted an instructor’s position at the prestigious Icon Collective music production school back in Los Angeles. Since diving into electronic music production, Ryan has released through Geffen Records, Borgore’s imprint, Buygore Records, Tommie Sunshine’s Brooklyn Fire, Pantheon, and more. He has worked alongside artists such as 2018 Grammy Award Winner Latroit, Sullivan King, Whyel, Warden, and Trentino, amongst others. He has also mixed/mastered music for 2ToneDisco, works closely with Dennis White at White House Music doing sound design and writing for sync libraries, and plays drums for genre-bending hybrid Monstercat/Mau5trap artist Grabbitz. Ryan’s diverse musical palette has earned him consistent support from major electronic publications like NestHQ, Dancing Astronaut, and Your EDM, which puts him in a unique and influential position, ready for an explosive and exciting future.

ORGY frontman Jay Gordon says, “It’s always tough when bands go through lineup changes. When it comes to the fans, sometimes it’s just gotta be done… I needed to upgrade and I knew Ilia would be the way to go for guitar – I had asked him a while back and was waiting on a call back. We’ve worked together in the past and I’m a fan, so I’m glad we waited for him. He is a sick guitar player and can totally sing, as well. He is also an actor… his superior talents will not disappoint.

“Our former drummer Bobby recently opened a music school in Orange County and we are excited for him. With the drumming position open, we quickly found Ryan Browne, a Berklee College of Music graduate and instructor at Icon Collective who specializes in colliding metal with electronic bass music and makes drum videos for his own original songs and remixes. I saw one of his videos and knew instantly that he was the guy we had been looking for. We’re only a week into rehearsals so far and both Ilia and Ryan have greatly exceeded my expectations. This is going to be an epic tour, to say the least.”

About ORGY

ORGY emerged in the Goth music scene in 1998 with their incredible remake of ‘Blue Monday’. The track sold over one million copies and is still selling 20 years later. In late 2005, after the release of Punk Statik Paranoia via D1 Music and Associates, their independent DVD TRANS GLOBAL SPECTACLE via D1 Music /DLC Records, and a promotional tour, the band went on a hiatus to work on their side projects. In 2011, after seven years of demand from fans for new music and a tour, founding member Jay Gordon (vocals) decided it was time to kick things back up and begin recording and touring again in support of ORGY‘s fans.

After several years of releasing earworm singles to the masses, ORGY has proven their long-lasting potency with a refreshed line-up and sound. The modern incarnation of ORGY has been transformed and sees the band poised to re-establish themselves in the EDM, industrial and hard rock scenes. Make no mistake about it, the ORGY brand is not going away anytime soon. As long as the fans demand new music and tours, the band is ready, willing and able to fill their request.

Hollywood Undead - Whatever It Takes (Mixtape)

Los Angeles, CA – Today, Hollywood Undead unveiled a new version of their hit single, “Whatever It Takes,” featuring notable recording artists Prodigal Sunn, Demrick, and Fudd Rukus. The mixtape edition of the song is available to stream and purchase on digital retailers, and fans can grab a listen and watch the music video HERE.

The video was once again directed by Brian Cox, who has been at the helm for other signature Hollywood Undead videos including “California Dreaming” and “Black Cadillac.” The original track appears on the band’s fifth studio album, FIVE, released October 27th, 2017 via Dove & Grenade Media/BMG

“It’s such an honor for us as a band to share this song with some extremely talented artists and friends,” says Johnny 3 Tears, Hollywood Undead’s vocalist and bass guitarist. “The song is about doing whatever we have to in order to overcome any circumstance, which is something everyone goes through in life. It’s amazing to hear new stories on the same song. What’s your story?”

Currently On North American Tour – Confirmed to Play Las Rageous, Welcome to Rockville, & Fort Rock Festivals

After completing a substantial run of European dates earlier this year, Hollywood Undead is currently back on the road for a tour across North America. Tonight, the band will co-headline The Complex in Salt Lake City with In This Moment, followed by a run of headline shows and festival performances at Las Rageous, Welcome to Rockville, Fort Rock, Corona Hell & Heaven, Impact Music, and Heavy Montréal. After selling out venues in London, Munich, Budapest, Prague, and more, it’s needless to say that the quintet’s atomic live performances are in high demand. To see it for yourself, check out the official live video of “Renegade” from the band’s headline performance at Moscow’s Adrenaline Stadium.

A full list of tour dates is included below, and all tickets can be purchased HERE.

FIVE debuted at #7 on the Billboard Top Albums Chart and has accumulated over 35 million streams, led by standout tracks “California Dreaming,”“Whatever It Takes” and “Bad Moon.” The record threads together a collage of metallic instrumentation, street corner poetry, and industrial haze, and Hollywood Undead’s “penchant for experimentation, as well as a flair for pop craftsmanship, is what sets [the band] apart from some of their contemporaries” (AllMusic).

Listen to FIVE HERE, and stay tuned for more new music from Hollywood Undead.
