Code Orange have received a letter of recognition from the governor of their home state of Pennsylvania to congratulate them on their Grammy nomination. The band were nominated for “Forever,” but they ended up losing to Mastodons “Sultan’s Curse“.
Code Orange’s Eric “Shade” Balderose has shared his “Only1(The Hard Way)“ remix of “Only One Way.“ He said the following about that:
“Keeping a unique creative energy in every aspect of Code Orange is something we are always thinking about and it’s what drives me personally.This song was a great opportunity for me to portray my alternate vision of the song and for us to bridge the gap with other genres and artists we are influenced by. We are constantly evolving and we’re going to keep pushing the boundaries of our band.”

Code Orange have premiered a new song titled “Only One Way” as part of Adult Swim‘s Singles Series. The band recorded the track at Studio 4 in Conshohocken, PA with producer Will Yip, and they had the following to say:
“We wanted to write a song that felt like something structurally sound and melodic, being chewed up and spit out by a machine; our machine. We plan to release material on a more regular basis in an attempt to break down rock and metal’s formulaic pattern of long breaks between outputs. This means we must work twice as hard, so we will. The hurt will go on. The end will never come…”
Code Orange will be playing a few headlining shows in the UK around their tour with Trivium, Power Trip, and Venom Prison. Here’s the dates:
04/15 Nottingham, UK – Rescue Rooms
04/18 Newcastle, UK – The Cluny
04/22 Portsmouth, UK – Wedgewood Rooms
Code Orange’s Eric “Shade” Balderose was a victim of theft while at the FYA Fest at the Cuban Club in Tampa, FL over the weekend. Unfortunatley, the guitarist lost his backpack, which had his laptop, passport, etc. in it.
Code Orange‘s Eric “Shade” Balderose has remixed of alt-J‘s tracks “Hit Me Like That Snare” and “Adeline.“ He said the following about that:
“I wanted to dismantle the songs entirely and completely rebuild them as if they had come from a different world, and that’s what I did. See the world with Code Orange vision. No boxes, no boundaries, no fear.”
“It’s not often we get to collaborate with heavy artists so having Code Orange step up and give us two amazing remixes is a real treat. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.”
Code Orange have premiered a new video for their song “The Mud.” The clip originally debuted on Adult Swim, and the song appears on the band’s latest album “Forever.”
