CODE ORANGE | I AM KING
Deathwish Inc. September 2nd, 2014.
“Unless you’ve been living under a rock..” is an offensive expression; especially because even the worms living under actual rocks in Nowhere, North Dakota have surely heard that a band called Code Orange exists and that band has released a record called I Am King via Deathwish. Inc on September 2nd, 2014. Granted, this is all within the small circle of “punk culture”, but for those of us within it the community has been overwhelmed with a single photograph of a scarred, bleeding forehead since early this summer. From periodical infiltrations of email accounts from the self-proclaimed “Thinners Of The Herd”, the seemingly endless praise from every last corner of the social media subculture spider web and even “legitimate validation” from the Billboard music charts claiming I Am King as the true leader of vinyl sales in its first week of worldwide distribution; you should know by now that this record is a tangible thing that your ears can consume.
The Smith Street Band | I Want Friends
'You can't love anything before and after nine to five
The only thing you cannot buy is time
And if you saved it with half the fucking zest you saved your money
You’d realise there is nothing you need to buy’
What a fucking song, what a fucking album, what a fucking band.
I’ve been looking so long at these pictures of you
That I almost believe that they’re real
I’ve been living so long with my pictures of you
That I almost believe that the pictures are
All I can feel
I know I’m not exciting, but I never claimed to be.
