THE ORPHAN THE POET want you to know they’re here and not going anywhere. Based out of Dayton, OH, the foursome come bearing their intense brand of take-it-or-leave-it alt rock, full of singalong hooks and charging guitars. Cutting their teeth on tours with bands like Dance Gavin Dance, Conditions, I The Mighty, & more, THE ORPHAN THE POET have been rabidly gaining fans thanks to their captivating live show, even grabbing the attention of legendary mixer/producer, Machine (Cobra Starship, Gym Class Heroes, Every Time I Die). Garnering comparisons to iconic acts like Jimmy Eat World and Taking Back Sunday, the band will hit this summer hard with the release of the ‘Terrible Things’ EP.


“Still Buzzin” is the newest single from the band, following the release last year’s Terrible Things EP. Produced by Machine (Cobra Starship, Gym Class Heroes, Fall Out Boy), Still Buzzin can be found topping Spotify playlists like New Noise (alongside Weezer + Walk The Moon).
