This past Saturday (March 14th), Code Orange were set to play a hometown record release show for their stunning new album, Underneath, at Pittsburgh's Roxian Theatre joined by the beautifully curated bill of Every Time I Die, Zao, Jesus Piece, Machine Girl and Facewreck. The coronavirus had other plans, of course, and the event had to be postponed at the last second.
Not ones to give up easily, however, Code Orange quickly devised a badass response to the situation: The band announced that they would play the show nonetheless, unveiling their new live production at The Roxian — to an empty house. Fittingly dubbed "LAST ONES LEFT: In Fear of the End," the show was livestreamed on Twitch with the help of hardcore videographer extraordinaire Hate5six. The performance was historic for other reasons, as well: It marked Code Orange's first show with their new, yet-to-be-identified touring drummer and with bandleader Jami Morgan singing center stage as the group's frontman, and it saw the live debuts of several songs off Underneath. Watch the epic proceedings — a perfect document of and answer to our strange, apocalyptic times — below.
