2x GRAMMY-nominated band CODE ORANGE have returned with a brand-new POWERMAN 5000 sounding and Nine Inch Nails inspired single, “Out For Blood.” Available today on all streaming platforms, “Out For Blood” is joined by an official music video directed by Max Moore – watch it above.
Elaborating on “Out For Blood” Code Orange frontman Jami Morgan explained, “When they go right, we go left. Code Orange is Out For Blood and we are just gettin’ started.”
Produced by Rob Cavallo (My Chemical Romance / Green Day), “Out For Blood” follows Code Orange’s critically lauded 2020 album UNDERNEATH which earned the band their second GRAMMY nomination in the category of “Best Metal Performance” for the album’s title track “Underneath.” Furthermore, UNDERNEATH closed out 2020 on multiple year-end lists. NPR celebrated it among “The 50 Best Albums of 2020” declaring, “UNDERNEATH’s liquid metal soundtracked a molten catharsis of confusion and rage.” The New York Times named it among the “Best Albums of 2020,” and Billboard touted it as one of “The 25 Best Rock Albums of 2020,” going on to applaud “The band’s greatest strength remains that unpredictability with the crushing jams of UNDERNEATH unexpectedly mutating or even short-circuiting at a moment’s notice.” Landing on “The 25 Best Albums of 2020,” Revolver urged, “You could never question their creative ambition; on UNDERNEATH, those ambitions are fully realized. Stand back in awe.” “Fitful and frightening, this album sounds like the dying cry of the modern world,” attested Noisey placing UNDERNEATH in their “100 Best Albums of 2020” round-up.
Produced by Code Orange’s Jami Morgan and Nick Raskulinecz with co-producer Will Yip, UNDERNEATH features additional programming from Chris Vrenna, and was mixed by Yip and Code Orange’s Eric ‘Shade’ Balderose. In its wake, the band performed multiple unforgettable livestream experiences, including “BACK INSIDE THE GLASS” an all-immersive environmental experience placing Code Orange’s live show at the center of awe-inspiring virtual landscapes. It marked Code Orange’s third groundbreaking livestream of 2020, following their revolutionary empty venue record release show, “LAST ONES LEFT: In Fear of The End,” and “UNDER THE SKIN,” their first-ever stripped down performance, which is available now as a digital album on all streaming platforms.
Comprised of Jami Morgan (Vocals / Drums), Eric ‘Shade’ Balderose (Electronics / Guitar / Vocals), Reba Meyers (Guitar / Vocals), Dominic Landolina (Guitar) and Joe Goldman (Bass), Code Orange flipped the heavy music world on its head with their breakthrough album FOREVER, a collection that masterfully mixed hardcore aggression with urgent industrial textures, earning the band a breakthrough GRAMMY nomination and top placement on several “Best of 2017” lists including: Rolling Stone’s “20 Best Metal Albums of 2017,” Revolver’s “20 Best Albums of 2017,” and The Independent’s “Top 20 Rock & Metal Albums of 2017.” FOREVER was followed by the 2018 release of THE HURT WILL GO ON, a digital EP featuring “3 Knives” and “The Hunt” Feat. Corey Taylor, as well as “The Hurt Will Go On” (Shade Remix), an official remix of Code Orange’s “Hurt Goes On” helmed by the band’s guitarist and vocalist Shade. Furthermore Code Orange has collaborated with a wide array of artists, recently lending production to Backxwash’s I Lie Here Buried With My Rings and My Dresses, co-producing Injury Reserve’s “HPNGC” Feat. JPEGMAFIA, and remixing Deathpact’s “ID” as well as alt-J’s “Hit Me Like That Snare” and “Adeline.”
