CODE ORANGE announce Download Festival warm-up show with Brand Of Sacrifice

Boundary pushers CODE ORANGE have announced a one-off London headline show at The Dome in Tufnell Park on Friday 14th June, 2024. Special guests will be BRAND OF SACRIFICE. The date serves as a warm-up for their highly anticipated, main stage Download Festival performance on Sunday 16th June.

Renowned for their bruising and explosive live show, CODE ORANGE obliterated Manchester last summer with a ferocious set at the UK’s Outbreak Festival and are more than ready to lay waste to Donington’s hallowed grounds next. This rare opportunity to catch the Pittsburgh squad at The Dome is surely not to be missed.

Tickets for The Dome go on general sale here on Friday 19th April at 10am, with pre-sales underway now.

CODE ORANGE released their latest, self-produced album, The Above, to global acclaim in September 2023 via Blue Grape Music. With The Above, the band takes their biggest swing yet, pushing their talents to their creative brink. The album morphs between genres and ideas with ease from grunge-sprayed rock anthems to bright acid trip electronics to moments of extreme parasitic chaos. Far past the point of caring about what scenes will accept them or what genre boxes they tick, The Above is a sonic testament to the force of nature the band has become, expanding their web of sound further than anything they’ve done previously. Destruction isn’t the endpoint but rather a necessary razing of preconceived notions to plant new ideas.

One highlight is the track “Mirror,” a lynchpin piece of the album’s puzzle. Directed by the band’s visual/audio collective NOWHERE2RUN, its official video features Reba Meyers delivering an emotional vocal performance. The video uses live action, stop motion, claymation, and rotoscoping to create a compelling juxtaposition between isolation and gorgeous, technicolour. NOWHERE2RUN consists of frontman Jami Morgan, keyboardist Eric “Shade” Balderose and cinematographer Eric Robbins. Reba notes, “this song has a special place in my heart. To me, it’s the climax of this style of my writing in this band thus far. Take a look in the mirror, are you bored?”

Jami Morgan adds, “Mirror is NOWHERE2RUN’s first foray into full music video production from conception all the way to the final edit. It’s fitting that we took on a song that is dynamically disparate from anything CODE ORANGE has ever done. It’s a little softer, a little more lush, and led by a powerful performance from Reba. It’s another important piece of the puzzle that is The Above.”

“Mirror” follows the song and video for “Take Shape (feat. Billy Corgan)”. WATCH the video and stream the track HERE.
