Code Orange are one of the most exciting bands in contemporary punk and metal. The band is having a breakout year due to the strength of its pummeling, fearless new LP, Forever. In this Code Orange interview, Jami and Dan Redding discuss the band’s intensity, its confidence, upcoming tour dates with System of a Down, the influence of Nine Inch Nails, and more.

Code Orange Interview Highlights:

Jami Morgan on the ethos of Code Orange: “It doesn’t matter what people expect of us, or what box they wanna put us in or what they expect we could achieve, or where they set the bar. I just want them to know that there is just nothing they’re going to be able to do about what we are gonna achieve. We’re gonna achieve as much as we possibly can, we’re gonna do whatever we wanna do, we’re gonna make music the exact way we wanna make it, it’s gonna be influenced by all kinds of things, and I’m gonna say what I wanna say, and that’s how it’s gonna be.”

Jami Morgan on Nine Inch Nails in the nineties: “That era is just so golden. It has this sick, wet, spit, aggression – with all this emotion and all this thickness. [The Downward Spiral is] this beautifully dense record, but it’s a hard record. Really, we were trying to touch a lot of those same emotions on our record, but just doing it completely different sonically. I want our record to be dense like that. … Nine Inch Nails does it all so beautifully, and especially early on, it was just wrapped in such a real aggression and real fuckin’ sick-in-the-head shit. I love that shit. There’s so much about that band that I admire.”
