Orgy Gets Cracking On "Candyass" Follow-Up

After breaking through with their 1998 debut "Candyass," the men of Orgy are back in the studio trying to make neo-metal magic once again.

The band is currently in a Los Angeles recording studio working with producer Josh Abraham (whose credits include Coal Chamber, Soulfly, and Orgy's first album) on the follow-up to "Candyass."

Of course, much of the band's initial success came courtesy of Orgy's cover of the New Order song "Blue Monday," prompting many to wonder if they can make it on their own this time around.

"On the first record, we kind of let the cover-itis blues get to us," Orgy frontman Jay Gordon told MTV News recently. "We did some on the first record. We didn't even plan on that thing being as big as it was. With the 'Blue Monday' thing, I mean, I'm very grateful for it. We got something to happen." [RealVideo]

Orgy's cover-free new album is due

to arrive later this year.
