Code Orange shares new song “My World”, announces tour dates

on July 16, 2014, 9:42am

Though the band may have shortened its name, the music of CoSigned Pittsburgh punk band Code Orange (fka Code Orange Kids) hasn’t gotten any less visceral. With the title track to their forthcoming sophomore album I AM KING, the band managed to sound even more assaultive than on 2012’s Love is Love/Return to Dust.

Today, they break off another cacophonous preview with “My World”. Here, Code Orange relies less on the immediacy of their punk inspiration and instead emphasizes the pulverizing force of metal. By doing so, drums seem to crash harder, guitars pack a little extra crunch, and Eric Balderose’s vocals are all that much more absolutely terrifying.

Listen in below.

I AM KING is due out September 2nd via Deathwish Inc. In support, the band has announced a U.S. tour set to span from early September through mid-October. Consult the full schedule below.
