Code Orange's mad-man bassist Joe Goldman, noted for his high kicks and barbarian scowls, has suffered an undisclosed injury while out on the band's headlining New Reality Tour, forcing him to miss the final few dates, including the Austin, Texas, show last night (July 10th). Homewrecker guitarist/vocalist Matt Barnum, who has been handling Code Orange's merch on the trek, is filling in. The group commented on the situation on Twitter. Goldman is no stranger to injury, having split his brow open at a Michigan show last year, a bloody wound he displayed proudly on social media, as you can see below.
