Chicago’s The Orwells will return with their second EP of 2013, Who Needs You, on September 10th via East End/Canvasback. Similar to June’s Other Voices EP, TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek produced the four-track effort’s titular single. While Sitek’s presence has undoubtedly roped in some of the band’s earlier, grimier tendencies, the band still delivers a visceral blast of angst-ridden garage rock.

The EP’s other tracks include “rip-offs” of Black Lips (!) and Misfits (!!) songs, plus a live version of the Remember When single “Halloween All Year”.

Who Needs You EP Tracklist:
01. Who Needs You
02. Open Your Eyes (A Misfits Rip-Off)
03. Salvation Is A Parking Lot (A Black Lips Rip-Off)
04. Halloween All Year (Audiotree Live Session)

In support, the band will be on tour with FIDLAR through early November. Consult the full schedule below.
