Berlin-based indie label Thirty Something Records will release ‘Pretend I’m Human,’ the third and final album by legendary New York City post-hardcore band ORANGE 9MM. Available for the first time in twenty years and for the first time ever on vinyl, cassette tape and digital, the reissue features fully remastered tracks and new artwork and packaging.
ORANGE 9mm was formed by vocalist Chaka Malik (BURN) in 1992 with Chris Traynor on guitar, Eric Rice on bass, and Larry Gorman on drums. The hardcore rhythm outfit are self-described as a result of being “happy and pissed off at the same time and playing at the moment.” ORANGE 9mm went on to release two full-lengths on major labels East West and Atlantic, releasing videos and touring with bands such as QUICKSAND, BIOHAZARD, DEFTONES and more.
Albums ship in August 2021. Due to the current situation delays are possible.
