The Orwells stream new single "Double Feature"

The Orwells have shared their new single “Double Feature.” The track is off their forthcoming full-length Terrible Human Beings, available February 17th via Canvasback Music. The song breaks down into a slow instrumental build that features jagged guitar lines, pulsing bass, and guttural howls before erupting into a climactic wall of noise. Guitarist

Matt O’Keefe had this to say of the song:

“Double Feature is like one of those stories that got passed around in email chains and AOL message boards a decade ago. You know, that kind of shit about having to send it to 5 more people or something will crawl outta the ground in your back yard and you’ll find the family dog at the bottom of the pool with the neon diving sticks or something. Chain mail – what a buncha junk! We made the end of the song a chain, it just keeps going and going, wrapping itself around and then coming back up again. We’re real fond of it”.

The band have also announced their initial run of 2017 tour dates, which will take them all across the country and the world. The Orwells will be supporting the work of Off The Street Club, Chicago’s oldest boys and girls club. A portion of each ticket sold in the US will benefit the organization.
