ORGY is celebrating 25 years of their album, Candyass, and has announced a co-headline US tour with COLD, starting on April 11th. Moreover, both ORGY releases, Candyass and Vapor Transmission, are being reissued as Remastered Vinyl versions on February 2nd.

ORGY’s Jay Gordon comments:

“Hey guys, I’m excited to announce our upcoming tour with Orgy, Cold, Horizon Theory, and I Ya Toyah. We will be headed out in April and May. So make sure to get your tickets early, so you get a chance to come check all of us out. It’s been a minute since Orgy has done a full tour, so I couldn’t be happier about that. We will be playing new songs as well as tons of your favorite classic Orgy songs, as we have just released, both Candyass (25 years ), and Vapor Transmission on vinyl.

“Everyone in the band is crazy excited about the tour, so I can assure you, it will be well worth the price of admission! Hope to see all of you at the shows! Peace and Love.”

Scooter Ward of Cold adds:

“Cold is excited to be back out on the road with Orgy this Spring on our Co-headline tour for their anniversary of the album Candyass. That album has always been a staple record for an era of music that changed the landscape for things to come in our genre. Looking forward to being a part of the celebration!”

Luke Edwards and his band of brothers, L.A. Edwards, return with their new single, “Good Luck,” ahead of a European tour with Lucinda Williams next week. The Californian family band has also just finished recording their fourth record, titled Pie Town, to be released on July 5th, 2024. The new single “Good Luck” reflects on recent difficult times with family.

Luke Edwards states:

Pie Town is the next step down the Heartland trail for us – it’s a collection of songs about my experiences over the past few years addressing the reticence to “grow up” and all the bulls**t that comes with that loss of innocence. Recorded here in Seattle, it reflects our most expansive and explorative instrumentation. I’m excited for this album, stay young my friends.”

Luke Edwards says of the new single:

“This song is a go-fuck yourself song about someone you still care about. There’s so few lyrics in it, I was hoping to let the melody do the talking and to allow space for interpretation for the listener. But for me, it’s about when you say, “Good Luck with that” as you wave goodbye and close the door.”

The new album will be released on July 5th, 2024, worldwide by Bitchin’ Music Group via The Orchard and Mars Label Group in Europe.

Catch L.A. Edwards play their new single with Lucinda Williams on the below UK & European dates, tickets for which are available at https://www.laedwards.net/.

Plutocracy Planet Announces Debut LP for Summer 2024

Born of the pandemic shutdown, Plutocracy Planet is an experimental sociopolitical super-collective led by Scott Morrow.

Born of the pandemic shutdown and mobilized by the world’s societal ills, Plutocracy Planet is an experimental sociopolitical super-collective led by former Alarm Magazine editor and musical vagrant Scott Morrow.

Fusing post-hardcore sensibilities with electronics, polyrhythms, atypical time signatures, and a far-reaching instrumental palette including strings, saxophone, piano, harp, marimba, acoustic guitar, and more. The ambitious collaborative project utilizes the talents of more than two dozen venerable vocalists and instrumentalists across hardcore, hip-hop, emo, avant-garde composition, pop, and more.

Greed, inequality, and the endless influence of money in politics serve as the project’s thematic focal points. But between a broad-minded approach and a coalition of lyrical voices, the collective’s forthcoming debut LP also touches on the cult of personality, fear-mongering media, police brutality, toxic masculinity, religious zealotry, factory farming, the billionaire space race, and the singularity.

Lead single “This Very Severity,” whose music video premiered at BrooklynVegan and is out now on DSPs, features emo legend Bob Nanna (Braid, Hey Mercedes, The City on Film) playing a slowly unravelling news anchor, relaying stories of our current fractured reality and an increasingly dystopian future.

Nanna says:

“I was overjoyed to be asked to contribute to the record as I usually don’t dabble in this genre or subject matter too much, and now I think I should way more often. Being able to collaborate on cool, important projects is something that brings me great joy, so being a part of this record was a tremendous pleasure. Please disregard my lack of dress pants in the video.”

Joining Nanna on “This Very Severity” are a pair of instrumental phenoms, guitarist Jason Schimmel (Red Fiction, Estradasphere, Secret Chiefs 3) and bassist Jonathan Hischke (The Sound of Animals Fighting, Le Butcherettes, Hella, Anywhere).

Morrow says:

“It’s unbelievable to me that I get to work with the people on this album. I’ve been a fan—in many cases a super fan—of many of them for 20 to 25 years. It’s a mind-blowing honor that they said yes, and I still don’t really know how the hell I convinced them .”
