CODE ORANGE - promo - 4-28-16 is excited to announce the signing of Pittsburgh, PA’s . The progressive unit comprised of Jami Morgan (Drums / Vocals), Eric Balderose (Guitar / Vocals), Reba Meyers (Guitar / Vocals) and Joe Goldman (Bass) have gripped listeners and press around the globe with their visionary compositions and aggressive power.

This spring will join on a U.S. trek which is set to get underway May 10th in Memphis, TN and continue through the end of the month.  are also set to perform at number of festivals later this year including a highly anticipated set at (tour itinerary below).

Code Orange first turned heads under the moniker Code Orange Kids with a series of tapes and 7-inch singles.  At just 17-18 years of age, the band released their 2012 groundbreaking debut LP, Love Is Love / Return To Dust, which NPR declared “…an untamed, unpredictable beast of a hardcore record… a sign of where we’re at in heavy music — fewer boundaries, more ways to crush eardrums.”  In September of 2014 with Code Orange approaching their 20’s, the band officially dropped “Kids” from their name to release their landmark second LP, I Am King, which Pitchfork asserted as “…the most forward-thinking post-hardcore record of 2014.”  Crashing through the confines of genre limitations, Code Orange proved that their power lies in their fearlessness and audacity which has placed them at the front of the pack.

Dave Rath, SVP of A&R at commented on the signing saying, “Now is the time for the next generation of heavy bands to take the torch and run with it. Code Orange is at the forefront of that generation, pushing the boundaries and changing perceptions of what heavy music will be for the future. As the premier lifestyle label in heavy music, is proud to announce Code Orange as part of a roster rich with a history of game-changing bands. This band is sure to change the game for all who follow.”

First conceived as an indie importer of metal albums in 1980, has grown into the most significant and innovative label in heavy music culture. Code Orange’s elevated and expansive mixture of hardcore / punk finds them at the forefront of a new generation of artists and cements their places as torchbearers who will continue to further the label’s already historic legacy.CODE ORANGE - art - 4-28-16
