As we start to look ahead to a potential new Code Orange record – the follow-up to Underneath – in 2022, frontman Jami Morgan has teased a little bit about what to expect from the highly-anticipated LP.

Speaking with Silverstein vocalist Shane Told on a recent episode of the Lead Singer Syndrome podcast, the singer revealed that Code Orange are "working on their next stuff" currently, and "if you don’t like [recent single] Out For Blood, that’s cool – but they’re liking it on the radio! So let’s open up some doors and keep going on to our next thing."

He added: "I’m really excited about our next album; we have a lot of really great things in the works that I think that anyone who’s ever liked us will be into."

Discussing Out For Blood and its somewhat controversial new style for the band, Jami explained (via ThePRP) of how it came about: "We were kind of using the word almost like ‘fun’ – which isn’t a word we’ve ever used making any song in history. But I would sit there, I would be working out and I’d be listening to DMX and I’d be listening to White Zombie and I’d be listening to Pantera‘s Walk and… and the shit’s fun. I want to run into like a wall. And I’d be like, 'Why don’t we have something that scratches that itch?'"

Code Orange reportedly have 25 songs in the works when it comes to the album, though there's no news yet when it'll all arrive.

Back in June, they also revealed that they'd hit the studio with Billy Corgan to work on some "blistering" new songs…
