Alternative rock band The Orphan The Poet release “Terrible Things”

Alternative rock band, The Orphan The Poet have just released their brand new bloody, gusty, gory video for “Terrible Things.” If you like cheesy effects, fake guts, video games and robots, then this is the video for you!

Frontman/guitarist David Eselgroth, explains, “When I was a kid, I was never allowed to play violent video games. So naturally when we do an arcade inspired video, it’s going to have tons of lasers and guts. Sorry, Mom.”


“Terrible Things” is the title track and lead single from The Orphan The Poet’s brand new EP !

Based out of Dayton, OH, The Orphan The Poet come bearing their intense brand of take-it-or-leave-it alt rock, full of sing-along hooks and charging guitars. Cutting their teeth on tours with bands like Dance Gavin Dance, Conditions, I The Mighty and more, The Orphan The Poet have been rabidly gaining fans thanks to their captivating live show, even grabbing the attention of legendary producers. 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.
