YAC Concert: The Orwells

"I'm not that old but I'm getting pretty wise" -- a sentiment within the early seconds of The Orwells' new album, Disgraceland, that pretty much sums up the eleven tracks that follow it. Two years have passed since the band emerged from their boring Chicago suburb as five high schoolers hellbent on reminding the world that American rock & roll is still alive. A lot has happened since then for The Orwells. They've slain and sweated on audiences around the world, recorded with their favorite contemporary producers, shared the stage with childhood heroes, raked in accolades from distinguished publications and even had David Letterman begging them for more. And now, as they release their irresistibly raucous yet masterfully architected Disgraceland on Canvasback Music, The Orwells are getting pretty wise.

Doing whatever comes naturally seems to be paying off for The Orwells. Their television appearances on Later With Jools Holland and The Late Show With David Letterman in the past year gave audiences around the world a taste of what concertgoers have seen during the band's recent tours with Arctic Monkeys, FIDLAR and Palma Violets. Footage of the performances instantly made the rounds. 

"The Orwells tap into [a] primal energy… in which youthful abandon and sloppiness are touchstones - and know their way around a nuttily repetitive hook." - SPIN  

"The best new live band in America" - NME

"...a mixture of back-breaking intensity, youthful tomfoolery and the utterly unhinged... With their brattish sensibility and near endless displays of energy, The Orwells seem to tap into that perennial youthful outcast in all of us - the kid who is forever being dragged to detention on reputation alone." -Clash Music
