Code Orange Kids no longer “kids,” announce new LP, touring with Ringworm & Killswitch Engage around This is Hardcore

We are code orange. We are code orange kids. If a word being moved around shakes you up….get off board now.

It looks like Code Orange Kids have all grown up, because they’ve just announced their new album, I Am King, and it’s set to come out under the name Code Orange. (So far this sounds better than when the Beach Boys contemplated going as just “Beach.”) The new record was recorded and engineered by Converge’s Kurt Ballou and it will be out on September 2 via Deathwish. No music is out from it yet, but check out the album artwork and tracklist below.
Code Orange were supposed to play Cambridge’s Deathwish Fest in July, but dropped off. They don’t have any plans to play NYC at the moment, but they do have a short tour with Killswitch Engage and Ringworm around the time all three bands play Philly’s This Is Hardcore that stops by the NYC-area on July 20 at The Loft in Poughkeepsie. Maybe seeing Code Orange and Ringworm in Poughkeepsie with Killswitch (and After the Burial) isn’t your ideal way of seeing them, but if you’re planning on making the trip up there, you can get tix. All dates are listed below.
As we recently mentioned, Adventures (whose lineup includes 3/4 of Code Orange), signed to Run for Cover who will put out a split with Pity Sex on the label in the near future. They just wrapped up a tour with Seaheaven and Foxing that we caught in NYC at The Studio at Webster Hall (pics).
All Code Orange dates are listed, with the album art and tracklist, below…
1. I Am King
3. Dreams in Inertia
4. Unclean Spirit
5. Alone in a Room
6. My World
8. Your Body is Ready….
9. Thinners of the Herd
10. Bind You
