Code Orange Say The Metal Scene Needs To Be More “Forward-Thinking”

During a recent interview with Metal Hammer, members of Code Orange offered their thoughts on the current state of the metal scene. In particular, Reba Meyers said that she believes the genre “needs to be more forward-thinking.”

Meyers said the following:

“I love metal, but there needs to be more forward-thinking. It’s expected to be the most forward-thinking genre, but right now I think it’s falling behind some other genres. You look at a metal festival lineup and the headliners are all just bands from the 90s. If you look at festivals like Coachella, the headliners are modern acts.

The festival runners who maybe say, ‘Oh they don’t have a following enough,’ it’s not just up to them – it’s up to the entire industry. Whenever you push these bands as ‘small’ they’re going to be looked at as ‘small,’. A lot of that is up to perception.”

Jami Morgan added:

“Metal has this amazing, loyal fan base and amazing bands that have paved the way or are still groundbreaking. But, are any of the new bands some of the biggest bands? No. In rap, or any other kinds of music, are the newest people the biggest? 100% That’s the problem.”

Code Orange Comment On Sexual Misconduct Allegations Made Against One Of Their Crew Members

Code Orange’s Reba Meyers has commented on the sexual misconduct allegations that were made against Homewrecker’s Matt Barnum. Meyers felt compelled to make a statement due to the fact that Barnum previously worked as one of Code Orange’s crew members.

Meyers said the following

“We’ve become aware that a crewmember of ours, matt, was acting with horrible disrespect and misogyny towards women for many years. I am so disappointed and so saddened by it I can’t by any means even begin to express that in words. I don’t have the words just this painful feeling.

I am so sorry to the women affected by this. It really hurts me how society allows this dynamic to happen time and time again. The standard is so low and I’ve seen and known that for a long time. And it’s only become even easier with social media to act without thought or regard to how your words will affect others.

All I can do now is send whatever strength I have to you all affected and hope you are able to get through I will continue to attempt to be a symbol towards our strength as best as I can, and learn how to better deal with this.

i will work to be as aware as possible of the women around me and their pain and try to pay as close attention to you all and support you as best I can from the perspective I have.

This type of behavior has always baffled me and disgusted me. To the women hurt by his actions, or actions in this vein by anyone towards you or your friends, I hope you are somehow able to work through this struggle and find meaningful balanced relationships in spite of it. You truly deserve that.

I’m sure you’re hurting much worse than I and my band and myself send you all the love we have.

Our next ‘you and you alone’ episode proceeds will be donated to the RAINN charity”

“We had been in touch with Code Orange for a couple of years and found the intensity and technicality of their music very inspiring. While we were working on the album, we felt that we needed to hear what happens if we combine our sonic worlds with CO. They agreed on the experiment, and the result is this song.”
