O.R.k. - Last Chance for Pre-Order.

Now approaching the end of the pre-order period for the debut O.R.k. album "Inflamed Rides".

Very pleased to report that "Inflamed Rides" is now at the manufacturing stage and we are on course to have the CD's shipped out to all pre-orderers in early to mid July.

For anyone unfamiliar, a little background on O.R.k.  can be found by clicking here to read an interview with Pat Mastelotto, Lef and myself on The Musical Melting Pot.

Our winning "Jellyfish" remix was Coldlight's "The Insignificant" which will be included as a bonus track on the CD:

We also decided to have Unungordium's "Manipulation" as an extra on the digital version of the album:

A select few journalists have been given access to the full album, and there below are some links to some early reviews:

Grind on the Road

At time of writing there are still a few days left to grab Inflamed Rides on Musicraiser, but this by no means the end, more activity is planned so please keep an eye on (and the FB page) for any updates.

(Edit: official release of "Inflamed Rides" will now be October 2nd through Cargo Distribution, please see for updates)

Digital pre-orders can be made here:
