Interview with Code Orange


Grammy nominated five-piece CODE ORANGE return with crushing first single Underneath, the title track to brand new album set for release on 13th March 2020 via Roadrunner Records


Underneath was produced by Jami Morgan, Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Ghost, Deftones) and co-produced by Will Yip (Turnstile, Panic at the Disco)

Code Orange’s drummer/vocalist Jami Morgan detailed the band’s new LP: “UNDERNEATH is about facing the duality in ourselves as individuals and as a society in an overcrowded, overexposed, all-consuming digital nirvana. Everyone has a voice and no one’s seems to matter… plummet down the rabbit hole of your deepest fears, anxieties and regrets to confront the monster that has been building underneath.’

“Underneath” finds Code Orange once again confounding expectations, piling element on element, and towering towards the sky. Rattling drum loops give way to bursts of rage as “Underneath” transforms into something colossal, daring, and resilient, setting the tone for one of the year’s most exhilarating heavy records.

In 2017 Code Orange flipped heavy music on its head with the release of Roadrunner Records debut Forever, warranting a Grammy nomination for Best Metal Performance for the title track, and the LP also landed on multiple end of year ‘Best Of’ lists, including Rolling Stone, Revolver, The Independent, Metal Hammer and Kerrang, and has since appeared in multiple Albums of the Decade lists.

There was also key support from the likes of BBC Radio 1’s Daniel P Carter (world exclusive spins and live Maida Vale session), Kerrang Radio, Total Rock Radio, Kerrang TV and dozens of regional ILRs


Never one to rest on their laurels, Code Orange also found time to write a digital EP, ‘The Hurt Will Go On’, which featured Slipknot’s Corey Taylor on one song, collaborated and co-producing with the likes of Injury Reserve and JPEGMAFIA, remixing Alt-J’s ‘Hit Me Like That Snare’ and ‘Adeline’, as well as composing two new songs which featured heavily in the WWE – ‘Let Me In’ became the official entrance music for WWE Superstar ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt. And they also appeared at the WWE’s NXT Takeover event in Brooklyn, performing a rendition of wrestler Aleister Black’s entrance theme.

After touring relentlessly in support of Forever, playing major festivals across America and Europe, and touring with genre heavyweights such as System of a Down, Deftones and Gojira, Code Orange will begin the touring cycle for Underneath this Spring at Coachella
