We had the pleasure of interviewing Orgy over Zoom video! 

Los Angeles-based industrial metal band Orgy is back with a brand new single “Karma Kastles.” The track marks the band’s first release of 2021. Staying true to their musical roots firmly established in 1997, “Karma Kastles” crunching guitars, electronic undertones and soaring vocals are what fans have gravitated towards for nearly three decades. 

“I wrote ‘Karma Kastles’ about the madness people in LA face–when it comes to relationships (both romantic and bromantic),” says Orgy’s frontman Jay Gordon. “There are just so many options on both sides, it gets insanely difficult to keep up with the madness and treachery.  It’s tough enough just trying to figure out who your ‘real’ friends are, let alone trying to date someone here. Things like geographical desirability and what kind of whip you drive, unfortunately play such bizarre roles in the typical LA relationship. We all build our own ‘Karma Kastles’ here in La La Land. Toxic and jaded with a twist of sex and a hint of scandal. Then we wake up like ‘wtf was I even thinking!’ You gotta love it, ‘cause it builds character and makes you miss home, wherever you’re from.”

Orgy—who is Jay Gordon (lead vocals), Carlton Bost (guitar, backing vocals), Nic Speck (bass, backing vocals), Creighton Emrick (guitar, backing vocals) and Marton Veress (drums)–recorded “Karma Kastles” between Gordon’s North Hollywood studio and home during the pandemic.  

“Karma Kastles” is the first single from a new Orgy EP which will arrive later this year.
