Code Orange Premiere New Track “Sulfur Surrounding”


Code Orange premiered a new track titled “Sulfur Surrounding” from their impending new album “Underneath” via the BBC Radio 1‘s ‘Rock Show With Daniel P Carter‘ today, March 08th. You can find the track in the player located here, skipping ahead to 1:17:19 in.

The band’s vocalist/drummer Jami Morgan and guitarist/vocalist Reba Meyers were also interviewed on the show with Morgan having the following to say of the theme to “Underneath“:

“I kinda see this as the third of three records, which would be our “I Am King” record, which was a lot about rebirth and finding inner confidence and projecting that. Our “Forever” record was really rooted in revenge and honestly a lot of bitterness and taking that out and taking your swing.

And this one’s a lot about self-reflection and trying to understand that monster that you’ve built up inside to protect yourself, in order to become, hopefully, what you need to.”

As for their approach, Morgan offered:

“People are always asking how can you do something new with metal or heavy music. And our answer was let’s keep the raw, hard, passionate elements of hard, heavy music and not water that down. But find a way to layer it in the way that records in other genres are layered, whether its hip hop or electronic music or scores or…

A lot of metal and heavy music, it’s like a piece of paper and it could be an awesome drawing that you think is great, but it’s flat. And it sounds that way. It comes at you all from the same place. We wanted this to come at you the way that other kinds genres come at you—which is from everywhere, but keep what we love about metal, which is the ass on it and the hardness.”

Underneath” will be out this Friday, March 13th, on Roadrunner Records. The band’s immediate touring plans run as follows:
