The Year Of The Gork

Hello Gorkheads

Since the release of the Gorky EP and Super Drunk video almost a year ago, we’ve released three more records, ‘High In The Low,’ ‘The Deuces,’ and now ‘Live At Last Exit.’ In addition to those, we’ve released our singles ‘She Spoke’ and ‘Dump On Trump!’…and there’s plenty more where that came from! Have you checked out GORKY TV? If not, please subscribe!

It’s also safe to say we’ve played more shows this year than probably the last few years combined, including a stint at this year’s Comic-Con for a screening of our Travis Mills-directed video for ‘Super Drunk,’ which was nominated for Best Music Video (did you know it was also included in Phoenix New Times’ Best Music Videos of 2015?)

We’d post more often on here, but I’ve been hard at work on my book about The Brian Jonestown Massacre, forthcoming from University of Hell Press. Even so, we’ve been working together on some new songs, and I’m really looking forward to getting to work on the next record. In the meantime, we will be releasing a single of ‘Jack Fool,’ our song which appears as the instrumental theme music to this year’s crime drama Durant’s Never Closes, starring Tom Sizemore, Jon Gries, Peter Bogdanovich, Michelle Stafford, and yours truly. We will also soon be announcing the details for our forthcoming 15-year anniversary compilation.

In the meantime, please keep up to date on the latest shows, releases, and news by liking/following us on FACEBOOK ! Until then, please enjoy this stream of ‘Live At Last Exit.’

Thanks y’all and much love!

There’s a lot going on in Gorkworld this month…first among them is THE GORKLAUNCH!

We’ve released our first demo and first two records, ‘High In The Low’ and ‘The Deuces,’ digitally on our Bandcamp. Eventually they will be released in custom stereo hi-fi on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon MP3, Tidal, and most other online retailers, but they are available now for the first-time ever directly from the source, and at a killer price! ‘First Demo/2004’ is $3 and each of the two full-lengths are $7 apiece!

Also happening this week or early next…the release of the Super Drunk Music Video! Directed by Travis Mills. Keep your eyes peeled!

Here’s the last video we did with Mills, ‘#Datass’, which has reached over 13,000 views on YouTube and has held the #1 slot on the Running Wild channel for music videos for most of 2015, making it one of the most-watched music videos by an unsigned Arizona band this year.

And, last but not least, the GORKY EP!


The Gorky EP will be released digitally October 21, 2015 via iTunes, Google Play, Tidal, and most other online retailers. Originally begun at Uranus of Tempe, the band had to relocate to 513 Studios after the Gin Blossoms’ Robin Wilson, who owned Uranus, kicked them out after deciding to shut Uranus down. Consequently, ‘Super Drunk’ was the last song to be recorded at the legendary studio. In addition to the singles ‘#Datass’ and ‘Super Drunk’, the Gorky EP features indie anthem ‘Braindrainer’, the 80’s-pop flavored ‘Girlfriend’, and the psychedelic hard rocker ‘Megalodon.’ More details on this release will be available soon.
