Orphan Jon’s Latest Studio Album “Over The Pain” To Be Released 8/26/22!!

The Galaxie Agency and Vintage LaNell Records are proud to announce the new release for Orphan Jon and The Abandoned.

“Over The Pain” which was produced by Alastair Greene will be released on August 26, 2022.

“After my 2018 debut album “Abandoned No More”, I wanted to write an album that centered on moving on, in spite of, and overcoming. “In Spite Of” is my life’s motto, and it is what has driven me in a positive direction since my childhood. The Covid pandemic initially put the brakes on this album’s production but, as I’ve learned over time, you get to decide what the outcome will be. Sure there are unknowns that can delay your progress, but you alone will determine how it all ends.

And so The Abandoned and I, along with my great friend Alastair Greene who produced, co-wrote and played on the album as well, went into the studio in late January 2021 and got to business on bringing my vision to reality. And even with the unfortunate delays throughout 2021 due to the pandemic, the album was completed this past Spring. I truly appreciate all the love and support of OJATA.”
