Pittsburgh-based hardcore outfit Code Orange have dropped the official music video for the song "Bleeding in the Blur," which is taken from their latest album, Forever. The video, directed by Max Moore (Of Mice & Men, Stone Sour, Senses Fail), can be viewed above.
Speaking with Fader about the meaning behind the "I Am King" imagery that appears at the end of the video — a reference to the band's album prior to Forever, guitarist and singer Reba Meyers explained, "It symbolizes the next step. We like to weave a continuing thread in everything we do musically and visually. There's somewhat of a continuing journey going on in these records and videos and that is part of it. The actual ideology of Code Orange hasn't significantly changed, no. It has grown from experience and struggle and frustration. It is always growing. We have an increasingly clear vision for the world we want to create in heavy music and otherwise. But the mission remains the same. I Am King was the birth in many ways of our band's mindset and new found hunger. Forever is a more driven, dynamic expansion on the ideology and sound."
Following up an international tour in support of System of a Down, Code Orange will return to the states this summer where they will hit the stage at various festivals. You can catch the band at Chicago Open Air, Rock USA, This Is Hardcore, and Psycho Las Vegas. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at this location.
Forever is out now via Roadrunner Records. The album can be purchased here.
