CD Review: The Orwells Return From "Discgraceland" With New Music

From Chicago comes the sophomore album from The Orwells entitled "Disgraceland." It was released back in June through Canvasblack in association with Atlantic Records and features eleven songs of pure, raw, straight-up rock. Beginning with "Southern Comfort," the band gives you a quick introduction to their music as they unleash a punk-like energy. Their sound definitely begins to grow on you by the second song "The Righteous One" as they slow the tempo down, but allow more room for the music to breath on its own. The Orwells display a modern rock sound in "Bathroom Tile Blues," but the album's lead single "Who Needs You" is a garage-rocker that has a pulse that is sure to quicken the heart. They continue to mix in the pop/rock radio anthems like "Always N Forever" amongst the edginess of "Blood Brothers" and the "North Ave."
The Orwells will be touring the U.S. beginning in September. To find out more about the new album "Disgraceland," please visit
