Recently, Pittsburgh-based hardcore act Code Orange (formerly Code Orange Kids) were cited as the “future of heavy music” by Slipknot lead vocalist Corey Taylor. They’ve taken full form of that statement over the past few months in the buildup to their highly-anticipated album Underneath. Fans got a taste of the direction Code Orange had in mind for this album with the groundbreaking singles, “Underneath,” “Sulfur Surrounding,” and “Swallowing the Rabbit Whole.”
Underneath released yesterday on Friday, March the 13th to much acclaim, with many referencing Taylor’s statement on just how big Code Orange is on track to be. The band was also set to head out on tour to promote the album alongside Show Me The Body, Jesus Piece, Year of the Knife, and Machine Girl. No major news has broken ground regarding the tour yet. The band, however, relayed the news via Instagram that their record release show in Pittsburgh had been rescheduled due to the ongoing crisis with COVID-19 (wash yo hands people!) As anticipated, this is impacting many bands across all genres, some of which rely on their music for their creative outlet and their income.
Though many bands are canceling, Code Orange had something different in mind. Barriers are continuing to be broken with this band, so read their statement via Instagram below to see what’s going on:
