Orgy And Brand of Julez Bring Their Army To Stanhope House

Orgy Bring Your Army Tour 2018

One of the best parts of music is getting the opportunity to discover new and upcoming bands. What’s even better is when a tour mixes veteran and newer artists together; best of both worlds! The Bring Your Army Tour does just that!

On the other end of the spectrum, the tour also introduces a fresh, new, and damn talented act: The New York-based heavy rock band Brand Of Julez. The Bronx rockers have been taking success into their own hands after dominating venues in the Big Apple. Brand Of Julez has taken the stage with some heavyweights, including Orianthi, Alice Cooper, Pop Evil, Red Sun Rising, Ace Frehley and more. Formed by brothers Julez Zamora (vocals/guitars) and Brandon Zamora (bass) in 2011 at the young ages of 16 and 13, the guys have never had it easy, nor expected it to be especially coming from one of the most competitive music markets in the world. This year they’ve spent early summer out on the road with Texas Hippie Coalition and now back out with Orgy supporting their debut album FORWARD which is available now!

 

Orgy finds themselves out in support of their latest single, “Army To Your Party”. The track is available now and can be purchased now via iTunes, Amazon and Google Play via the band’s website. The song “Army to Your Party” comes off the upcoming album, entitled #newmusic, the follow up to their 2015 record Talk Sick. the band is led by vocalist Jay Gordon who is charging the band’s comeback after a necessary rebuilding process. The line up is now once again whole and may be filled with more talent than ever.The two new line up additions include multi-talented guitarist, singer, and producer Ilia Yordanov, and drummer, electronic music producer, and DJ Ryan Browne.

The Bring Your Army Tour is about halfway through, and on Thursday night, the 6th of September, both Brand Of Julez and Orgy found themselves at New Jersey’s rock n’ roll roadhouse the Stanhope House for an intimate evening fitting for the band’s die-hard fans. My inclination that these two bands quite possibly might tear down the venue itself wasn’t too far off.

First, Brand Of Julez kicked things off with their brand of modern melodic rock filled with aggressive vocals, ripping guitars solos, driving bass lines, and powerful drums. Throughout the night Brand Of Julez wowed the sort of-hometown crowd with every song they played. One song after another the crowd became increasingly impressed with the band’s performance. This is not surprising considering the band’s showmanship and knack for getting the crowd involved in the performance.

Watching the New York rock band live will make you believe they’ve been doing this professionally for way longer than they actually have. I’m sure with their charisma, passion, professionality, and work ethic, this is a band you will without a doubt be hearing more from in the very near future. Pick up a copy of their album and keep a look out for them on more tours in the near future, and if you make it to a show go see their merch guy Noah and tell him I sent you!

The night’s closer Orgy readied to take the stage next. Last time I saw the band perform live was on The Family Values Tour with Korn. I didn’t know what to expect, however, I really looked forward to seeing what these guys were bringing to the table in 2018. For most bands, Stanhope House would be a tough challenge when it comes to delivering a high energy performance. The venue’s intimate setting and smaller stage height makes up close and personal an understatement, especially for a band like Orgy (who days before played New York City’s prestigious Gramercy Theatre).

Jay Gordon and company didn’t let the venues obstacles get in their way; however, the band took the stage and delivered a performance even more impressive than the band I remembered from nearly twenty years ago. Using the venues disadvantages to their benefit, Gordon rocked his microphone stand while getting face to face with fans screaming song lyrics together for favorites, like “Fiction”, “Revival”, and “Stitches” along with newer tracks “Talk Sick” and “Army To The Party”. Undoubtedly the highlight of the night, and the moment the performance went next level, was during the band’s rendition of the New Order classic track “Blue Monday”, which found Jay Gordon taking to the crowd and performing surrounded by fans – even letting them join in to sing parts of the song. The energy in the room cranked to explosive levels at that moment and after participants could be heard speaking of how that moment “made their night”.

Overall Orgy’s performance was impressive, nostalgic, and fresh. It’s great to see a band return better than before and triumph through the trials and tribulations they face. Orgy has succeeded in that. Gordon sounds as refreshed as ever and the band is energetic and fun to watch. These guys should be out on the road again soon. With the possibility of a new album soon, I encourage you to give the band a chance with it’s revitalized form.
