Orphan Boy are a rock/pop trio that formed in Cleethorpes in February 2005. They soon got out of there and moved to Manchester where they signed to Concrete Recordings. (Though two of them are now back in their beloved Cleethorpes).They began by making a kind of post-post punk music in which choruses were forbidden and lots of guitar strings got snapped. This became known as Two-Chord Council Pop, the culmination of which was their (classic) debut album, Shop Local, released in 2008.
In the wake of Shop Local, 'cult' success, Orphan Boy began working on a new more melodic, more musical and more introspective direction (working title of Lad Art). In the lead up to the release of Passion, Pain and Loyalty , Orphan Boy will play the following warm up gigs and festivals. There will be a full album tour in August/September.
