Code Orange are Launching an Entire Livestream Series
So successful was Code Orange’s album release show — which they livestreamed from an empty venue after the gig was canceled — that the band has decided to launch an entire livestream series.
The series, titled You and You Alone, will take place on the band’s Twitch channel and kicks off tonight at 8pm EDT with “an improvised performance / visual experience from the band’s electronics / synth maestro, Eric ‘Shade’ Balderose.” It isn’t clear yet whether this is gonna be a weekly thing or new episodes will air whenever the band is able, but a press release promised that more details about upcoming episodes will be revealed in the next few days.
Given the success of Code Orange’s first foray into livestreaming — they had nearly 13,000 concurrent viewers while trending Top 15 on Twitter in the U.S. — I’ll bet this series is going to draw quite a lot of interest from the start. The question is whether they can maintain that energy and continue coming up with new ways to keep their audience engaged over time. I’m certainly curious! I’ll be watching tonight, and you can, too, using the embed below or visiting the band’s Twitch.
