Modern-rock fans remember Jay Gordon's group Orgy as one of the more challenging acts to get lumped into the '90s nu-metal explosion. "Orgy offered a change from what people would have expected, and most fans welcomed us with open arms," Gordon says, as his 2012 version of Orgy — he's the sole remaining original member — hits the road for the first time since 2005. As one of the more palatable industrial-pop acts behind Marilyn Manson and Stabbing Westward, Orgy were unique amongst a rock scene full of backwards caps and baggy cargo pants, taking their fashion cues instead from their heroes Peter Murphy and Gary Numan. Their cover of New Order's "Blue Monday" on 1998's Candyass remains a radio staple and managed to swiftly convert young listeners over to Bernard Sumner and company. "I think that after Orgy, people felt it was okay to like what we were doing, and doors started to open for new music as well," adds Gordon. Within the past year, the band was working with international dubstep sensation Skrillex right as the DJ began to blow up. "We did manage to get off one track before his instant rocket-blaster rise to fame," Gordon says.
