Biography
Orgy was formed in 1997 by vocalist Jay Gordon (de facto ex-member of Deadsy) and guitarist Ryan Shuck.

Bassist Paige Haley, guitarist Amir Derakh, and drummer Bobby Hewitt soon completed the lineup. All were veterans of the local L.A. club scene. Derakh had previously gained some fame in the 80s metal band Rough Cutt, and Hewitt was a former member of Electric Love Hogs. Gordon and Derakh were also experienced producers.

They claimed the name of the band was not a sexual reference, but instead pointed to the "collage" of different styles in their music. Within six months, they were signed to KoЯn's label Elementree Records. They had yet to play a single live show.

In 1998, their debut album, Candyass, was released. Gordon described the subject matter of the material as "...bullshit...lies and fairy tales." Their cover of the New Order song "Blue Monday" was a breakthrough hit. The second single "Stitches" also gained extensive airplay.

Orgy made their live debut on the Family Values Tour with KoЯn, Limp Bizkit, Ice Cube (ex-N.W.A.), Incubus, and Rammstein. They were featured on the live compilation album of the tour, released in 1999. Other tours with Love and Rockets and Sugar Ray followed.

Their second album, the science fiction-themed Vapor Transmission, came out in 2000, with "Fiction (Dreams in Digital)" and "Opticon" as singles.

After the release of Vapor Transmission, Orgy left Reprise Records. They had already severed ties with Elementree. Gordon started his own independent record label D1 Music. The band's third album, Punk Statik Paranoia, was released in 2004 through D1. A fourth album is on the way in late 2005 or first quarter of 2006.

In late 2003 guitarists Shuck and Derakh formed a side project, Julien-K, as an outlet for electronic material they had come up with during the writing process for Orgy. They are currently working on their first album and producing Chester Bennington of Linkin Park's solo album.
