Code Orange cornered the live streaming landscape early on during lockdown when they performed their record release show for Underneath in an empty venue via Twitch. And since then, as drummer/vocalist Jami Morgan told The Pit on our most recent edition of Last Words, they’ve continued to change their approach, blending live performance with interesting visuals like their horror-movie themed live stream back in June. For Halloween, Code Orange are once again planning some spooky hardcore fun. On October 31, starting at 4 p.m. Eastern time, Code Orange launches “Back Inside the Glass,” which will feature another live set from the band as part of an “all-immersive environmental experience.” They’re also being joined by a line-up of ringers: Jesus Piece, Year of the Knife, and Machine Girl.
Morgan says about the new live stream event in a press release, “We are very excited to present the next chapter of the Code Orange live streaming experiment. We are hoping to deliver something on a whole new level with ‘Back Inside the Glass’ and are glad to have our brothers and sisters in Jesus Piece, Year Of The Knife, and Machine Girl along with us.”
Luis Aponte of Jesus Piece added, “Code Orange made themselves the innovators of this. If we were going to do a livestream, we’re going to do it right.”
The stream also includes a VIP fan experience that allows you to digitally project yourself inside the venue while the band plays, and there will also be a preshow, “Mudbangers Ball (Vol. 2)”, hosted by Riki Rachtman at 3 p.m. Eastern. Tickets for Code Orange’s “Back Inside the Glass” Halloween live stream can be found here. Check out the flyer for the show below.
