Electronic rock veterans ORGY recently announced their upcoming “Bring Your Army” tour featuring support from MOTOGRATER, BRAND OF JULEZ and THE CROWNED, kicking off on August 17 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Joining ORGY on this tour will be two new members — multi-talented guitarist, singer and producer Ilia Yordanov, and drummer, electronic music producer and DJ Ryan Browne.

New ORGY guitarist Ilia Yordanov (pronounced ileeah) was born in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, and grew up in San Diego, California and Seattle, Washington. Ilia began playing shows at age 13 with numerous bands until assembling his own group, RED MUSEUM, in 2006. The outfit went on to release four EPs. Ilia moved to Los Angeles in 2008 and has been living and performing there for the past 10 years so he could focus on his acting career, and has predominantly remained a solo artist, producing and engineering his own musical work. Additionally, Ilia directed the video for his single “Fire In The Middle”, released in 2016. Ilia has also supervised and composed music for film. In addition to music, Ilia regularly performs stand-up at The Comedy Store, and has published a book titled “Dirty Mirror Talk”.

L.A. native Ryan Browne grew up playing drums in bands and took his playing to the professional level at 15 by playing for Jive Records‘ pop duo AXIZ. Ryan attended Berklee College of Music and studied drum set, Afro Caribbean hand percussion, music production, engineering and music business. Upon his early graduation, he accepted an instructor’s position at the prestigious Icon Collective music production school back in Los Angeles. Since diving into electronic music production, Ryan has released through Geffen Records, Borgore‘s imprint Buygore Records, Tommie Sunshine‘s Brooklyn Fire, Pantheon and more. He has worked alongside artists such as 2018 Grammy Award winner Latroit, Sullivan King, Whyel, Warden and Trentino, amongst others. He has also mixed/mastered music for 2ToneDisco, works closely with Dennis White at White House Music doing sound design and writing for sync libraries, and plays drums for genre-bending hybrid Monstercat/Mau5trap artist Grabbitz. Ryan‘s diverse musical palette has earned him consistent support from major electronic publications like NestHQ, Dancing Astronaut, and Your EDM, which puts him in a unique and influential position, ready for an explosive and exciting future.

ORGY frontman Jay Gordon says: “It’s always tough when bands go through lineup changes. When it comes to the fans, sometimes it’s just gotta be done… I needed to upgrade and I knew Ilia would be the way to go for guitar — I had asked him a while back and was waiting on a call back. We’ve worked together in the past and I’m a fan, so I’m glad we waited for him. He is a sick guitar player and can totally sing as well. He is also an actor… his superior talents will not disappoint.


“Our former drummer Bobby recently opened a music school in Orange County and we are excited for him. With the drumming position open, we quickly found Ryan Browne, a Berklee College of Music graduate and instructor at Icon Collective who specializes in colliding metal with electronic bass music and makes drum videos for his own original songs and remixes. I saw one of his videos and knew instantly that he was the guy we had been looking for.

“We’re only a week into rehearsals so far and both Ilia and Ryan have greatly exceeded my expectations. This is going to be an epic tour, to say the least.”

ORGY recently revealed its latest single, “Army To Your Party”. The song is cut from the band’s upcoming album, titled “#newmusic”. The track was mixed by Jay Baumgardner of NRG Recording Studios, and is a full collaboration written by ORGY, Sullivan King and Crichy Crich.

“#newmusic” and “Army For Your Party” are being released via the joint venture between D1 Music and Pacific Rising Entertainment, a company run by ORGY fan Adrian Stinson that aims to assist artists in making their vision come true, whether they are already an internationally known touring act or just getting their feet wet in the music industry.
