Code Orange's Ethan Young

Code Orange’s New Mystery Drummer Has Been Identified


The identity of Code Orange‘s mystery drummer looks to have revealed, thanks in part to his distinctive arm tattoos. The unintentional reveal follows MetalSucks‘ public call to identify him. It seems that Ethan Young of Thirty Nights Of Violence is the individual currently sitting behind the drum kit for Code Orange, as Jami Morgan has transitioned solely to vocals from his previous role as a drummer/vocalist.

As of yet, Young‘s position is not permanent. Morgan recently commented of that:

“…It’s not even about who it is. The mask and the concept fits with the character in the record and with the cover art, and I like that. On top of that, we’ll see. He’s a great guy and I think he’ll continue to earn his spot, but for now he’s an empty vessel. He’s our drumming muse for now. We don’t want to be married to anyone yet. You don’t know how people are going to be ’til they are.”

This isn’t the first time tattoos have been used to identify mystery musicians in metal as Slipknot and Static-X can attest to.
