Code Orange Formally Announce Tour With Jesus Piece, Show Me the Body, Etc.
I really, really like the title track from Code Orange’s new album, Underneath… but I understand it’s something pretty different for the band, and not that all of their fans dig it. To me it’s like, whatever — a good song is a good song. I do wonder, however, if the track will be any fun to watch live. The synth-heavy track doesn’t seem to actually require much from guitarist Dominic Landolina and bassist Joe Goldman, who really only join in during the chorus. So what will they do the rest of the time they’re on stage? Just be hype men?
We’ll find out in the spring… ’cause Code Orange’s rumored tour with Jesus Piece, Year of the Knife, and Show Me the Body is no longer just a rumor. The band has officially announced the trek, which will also include Machine Girl. Underneath comes out a couple of weeks before the tour begins, on March 13 (via Roadrunner), and word around the campfire is that a lot of it is heavier and more “traditional” Code Orange, so the less-overtly-moshable title track shouldn’t deter anyone from going.
