Code Orange headlines their first sold out First Unitarian Church show

Pittsburgh hardcore band, Code Orange, released their second studio album and first album with their new record label, Roadrunner Records, entitled “Forever” on January 13, 2017. Prior to the album’s release, the band announced a full U.S. tour, which started in January of this year, just a few days after the album’s record release show in Pittsburgh on the album’s release date. The last day of tour landed here in Philadelphia, where Code Orange, along with tour support, Vein, Trail Of Lies, and Jesus Piece, played a sold out show at the legendary First Unitarian Church at 21st and Chestnut Streets in Philadelphia to an enthusiastic crowd just a few days ago on February 11, 2017.
