Two time Grammy-nominated band Code Orange have released their new album The Above, via Blue Grape Music. The first album since their critically acclaimed 2020 Underneath, and fourth overall, The Above was self-produced by Jami Morgan and Eric “Shade” Balderose with engineering by Steve Albini. As heavy an album as the Pittsburgh six-piece has ever produced, it’s a giant sonic leap full of twists and turns that only Code is capable of achieving. A composite of seamless sounds, the band blends heavy music, grunge, trip hop, hip hop, and more throughout the 14 tracks, a testament to the force of nature they’ve become, expanding their web of sound further than anything they’ve done previously.
“We couldn’t be more excited to finally let go of The Above, a record that took 3 years of crafting. It’s an album that we hope can wash over you, but one that continues to gain meaning with an investigative ear. Jam that shit front to back!” says Jami Morgan.
The album arrives with Code Orange once again inviting fans to dive deeper into their world via a 3D interactive web experience. A first-person perspective places fans at the center of the experience where they are invited to explore multiple unique environments at www.iamnotlivingimasleep.com and immerse themselves in Code’s World.
Tomorrow kicks off the bands first-ever music festival, CODE’S WORLD, which will act as their hometown album release show. The festival will feature hand-picked favorites of the band, including Madball, E-Town Concrete, Vein.FM, 200 Stab Wounds, Pain Of Truth and many more. Full info and tickets can be found HERE.
