Why new Code Orange album Forever is one of the most important releases of 2017
Thought signing to a major would blunt Code Orange’s assault? Don’t be stupid. We dig into the most important heavy release of 2017
It’s release day for Code Orange’s Forever, and the alternative musical corner of social media is losing its collective excrement. Their third record is heavy, aggressive, and already a contender for album of the year. In January. Yes, it’s that good.
Speaking to Metal Hammer from the band’s home of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, drummer and vocalist Jami Morgan is proudly soaking up the hundreds and thousands of tweets being hurled at the band about their ferocious masterpiece.
“We wanted to make a record that felt furious and insane, and didn’t feel a little bit watered down the way a lot of records do when bands try their hand at art,” he passionately explains. “What we want to hear is not out there in this combination, so we’re creating it.”
