As you’re all aware by now, our bassist and closest friend Adam ‘Milky’ Adams passed away on Friday the 3rd of May.
Upon hearing the news and having some time to chat about it, we were not in the right mindset in regards to whether or not we’d continue as a band.
But we’ve since made a decision, and we believe it’s the correct and only decision we could make. And that is to continue as a band and continue the journey we started over 5 years ago.
It really wasn’t a choice as such, because we know that if we ceased to be, it would be a dishonor to Milky and all he put in, and also to everything we as a unit have put in to the band.
As hard as it’s going to be to get back on our feet completely, we are going to do everything it takes to pick ourselves up and continue bringing you the music we love to make, and play the shows we love to play.
Your support and thoughts in this tough time means a lot to not only us, but Milky’s family. So thank you all, and we will see you all, one way or another \m/
It is with great sorrow and heartache that we at Orpheus Omega have to announce the sudden passing of our Brother and Band mate Milky. With this shock on the eve of our album launch show we had a decision to make and we have decided that the show will go forward, however we will not be performing, instead we will be holding our set time as a listening party for all of you to hear the final product that we and Milky worked so hard for. All we ask is that you all come and support the acts playing and show your respects to a person and a talent that was taken far too soon. We will only be selling copies of the album as it is the last work of Milky and we feel to deny you that as fans and friends would not be in Milky’s best wishes.
Thank you all in advance for your support

Let’s be frank here… the last design was a little rushed and slapped together, but it served us well for over 2 years! But now here’s the new flashy, efficient and all round sexy looking new site.
Feel free to poke around, there’s new features in every section and there’s now a SoundCloud music player on the right too —-> So check that bad boy out!
