The Orphan the Poet get romantic and infectious on their latest single "Money", issued just ahead of major tour with the Score.

Columbus, Ohio's the Orphan the Poet turns up with new single, "Money", a quick, infectious single that revisits the time time-honored tradition of being in love and next to penniless. With hooks that sink their claws in from the first measure and soaring choruses that make the single a surefire hit at commercial radio, this track touches the head and the heart.

Radio, of course, is no stranger to this trio. To date the band has been a favorite on stations in Atlanta, Philadelphia, Columbus and Cincinnati in addition to spins on Sirius XM's Alt Nation Advanced Placement and BBC's Radio One.

Speaking to the gypsy soul of artists and fans everywhere the band say, "Posh things have never been super important to us. This is our cheers to the low life, and hanging with someone you care about."

The Orphan the Poet takes to the road with the Score starting September 16.
