June 2nd, 2016 – Dayton, OH – Alternative rock band The Orphan The Poet have unveiled their brand new EP, Terrible Things, which is streaming exclusively on idobi Radio.

Fans can listen to the entire EP a day early, here: http://bit.ly/22Aixlw.
In celebration of the release, the quartet has released a brand new video for lead single, “Terrible Things,” which is premiering exclusively with New Noise Magazine. Frontman/guitarist, David Eselgroth, says, “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.” Watch it, here: http://bit.ly/1XT2FcX.
The Orphan The Poet are currently gearing up for their EP release show at Park Street Saloon in Columbus, OH on Friday, June 17th. Doors for the all ages show open at 6pm and tickets can be purchased for just $5, here: http://ticketf.ly/1WZeJue.
