2021 Grammy Awards Postponed

The 63rd annual Grammy Awards have been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The ceremony is now set to take place on March 14.

The Recording Academy chairman and interim chief Harvey Mason Jr. commented:

“After thoughtful conversations with health experts, our network partner CBS, our host, and artists scheduled to appear, we have made the decision to postpone the 63rd Grammy Awards to March 14, 2021. The deteriorating COVID situation in Los Angeles, where hospital services have been overwhelmed, ICUs have reached capacity, and new guidance from state and local governments have all led us to conclude that postponing our show was the right thing to do. Nothing is more important than the health and safety of those in our music community and the hundreds of people who work tirelessly on producing the show.

We want to thank all of the talented artists, the staff, our vendors, and especially this year’s nominees for their understanding, patience, and willingness to work with us as we navigate these unprecedented times. The show will go on and we will unite and heal through music by celebrating excellence and saluting this year’s outstanding nominees.”

As previously reported, this year’s nominees include Power Trip, Body Count, In This Moment, Code Orange, Poppy, and more.

Code Orange To Livestream Show From Empty Venue Due To Their Album Release Show Being Postponed

Code Orange’s “Underneath” album release show with Every Time I Die, Zao, Jesus Piece, etc. at The Roxian in Pittsburgh, PA has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Despite this, the band are still planning to perform in an empty venue tomorrow night (March 14). The set will be livestreamed on Twitch.

Code Orange issued the following statement:

“ATTN: A MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT

THE BAD: in the wake of the chaos that is consuming our world… it brings us no joy to announce that on a day we’ve been working towards for the the past two plus years – the release of an album we are incredibly proud of – we have to relay some bad news. Pittsburgh’s The Roxian has decided to reschedule all shows, including ours, due to the coronavirus pandemic. This show was going to be a cathartic release of all the hard work that has been put in over our bands long career – with a new level of production and intensity that we were extremely proud of. A new era of Code Orange beginning in our hometown with a lineup for the ages was something that had been pushing us through every single tough day. now that’s gone and we are stuck footing the bill for quite a bit, which I’m sure a lot of you can relate to. so it is what it is. we have been racking our brains on how to present our art live in this extremely uncertain time – one that truly reflects everything we are trying to work through on UNDERNEATH. Things feel cold, ruthless, noisey, confusing and disconnected. But we all must refuse to tap out. and that brings us too…

THE GOOD: this Saturday night 3/14 we present to you LAST ONES LEFT: In Fear of The End. a live stream. We are going to perform – in an empty venue – the show we have been planning on presenting to you all for months on end. You can stream the show on TWITCH and you will be able to contribute if you feel like it/are able. You will also be able to purchase the exclusive merch and record release records that we were sitting on for the show. A lot of really cool stuff that we designed ourselves. If you choose to do so – it will be very appreciated – and will help keep our heads above water.
If you have tickets to the Pittsburgh show you can get a refund at point of purchase. That show WILL be rescheduled. If you hang onto your ticket it will be good for whenever this thing lets up and we are able.

Let this be known: we love and respect you all and we hope you can enjoy this record.
It feels eerily timely…

“They pricked me but I didn’t bleed. They singed me just to test the smell. They cut me but I didn’t feel. I was just too deep in to fail.”

See you all tomorrow
The Thinners of The Herd”
