Code Orange Kids at Acheron, Nov. 2011 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
Code Orange Kids

You'd never guess it, but Code Orange Kids have almost gone goth with their new track "VI (Worms Fear God // God Fears Youth)", part of a four-way split with Tigers JawThe World Is A Beautiful Place And I Am No Longer Afraid To Die and Self Defense Family due tomorrow (4/23) via Run For Cover/Topshelf Records. Opening with a shimmering guitar riff, buried clean vocals and reverb galore, the song opens up into something darker/more sinister as the track progresses. Stream it below, and order your copy on digital/7" via Bandcamp or one of the labels (Top Shelf, Run for Cover).

COK have a limited number of US dates scheduled so far, but will hit The Studio at Webster Hall on May 18 & 19 as part of the Anti-Flag 20th Anniversary celebration. COK will join Hostage Calm and Worlds Scariest Police Chases on 5/18; with 5/19 featuring This is Hell, Luther and Worship This! Tickets are on sale for both nights as a package or individual shows (May 18 HERE, May 19 HERE). The band will also appear at Scion Rock Fest in addition to other dates.

Goth? LOL

Hardcore is such a fucking joke and how did a bunch of herbs from suburban Pittsburgh get all this hype?

All hardcore is in 2013 is what bands play when they first start before they change into what is commercially viable - Code Orange Kids is the latest version after Trapped Under Ice who BROKE UP cuz sales of their latest album suck ass for who goes on hiatus on top?

The World Is A Blah Blah Blah Blah can go eat a dick twice the length of their name for that ridiculous, pretentious name. You're not afraid to die? Really?

This is so damn good. Love their more aggressive stuff as well, but this is also incredible. I love this band, and the fact that they set no boundaries for themselves, so much.
