https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H6wYuhLxXm8 After changing its name earlier this month, Code Orange (formerly Code Orange Kids) announced it will be releasing its sophomore album in a couple of months. It's called I Am King, and above you can watch the video of its savage title track. Backed by a caustic hardcore soundtrack, the visuals depict some poor guy getting the letters "TOTH" carved into his back. I don't know what that's all about, but it's clear Code Orange  isn't fucking around. This being the intro to the album, it is looking as though I Am King will be every bit as heavy and ferocious as its predecessor, if not more. Glad to see Converge's Kurt Ballou reprising his role as producer.

I Am King is due out September 2 via Deathwish. Here's our take on the band's last one.
