Jack of all trades vocalist Greg Puciato has released a transfixing, spacious and melodic taste of his sophomore solo album Mirrorcell, releasing this Summer on Federal Prisoner. Jim Louvau and Tony Aguilera directed the video for “Lowered”, which features the ex-Dillinger madcap frontman collaborating with Reba from Code Orange and is sure to spark a sense of wanderlust in the listener.

“When she came to the studio we had like…zero vocals for that song. I had been a little unusually stuck with that one lyrically and as far as vocal phrasings and melodies” Puciato explains. “Reba and I had such an explosion of musical and personal chemistry right away, and we ended up writing and recording all of the vocals in about six hours. It was one of the purest collaborations I’ve ever done, in terms of feeling, just really natural and explosive. She really blew me away overall. The combined energy was instant. That song turned into something really special because of that energy.”

Puciato once again recorded all guitars and bass for the collection, and continued his long-running relationship Producer Steve Evetts (The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Cure, Snapcase). Chris Hornbrook played drums on the nine-song album.

Mirrorcell pre-orders are available now via Federal Prisoner’s website (Federalprisoner.shop) with the album available on a variety of formats including multiple limited-edition vinyl variants, a cassette, CD and an accompanying merch collection. A pair of limited-edition “Lowered” vinyl singles, and cassette, are also available.

Code Orange return. Pre Order ‘Underneath’ now

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Saturday, January 11, 2020 at 1:43 PM (PST)

Hey everybody. In case you were looking for it and curious…I haven’t been able to post yet about Neil from Rush dying, just too much of a loss to even process yet. I think, while it is the news, sites can often get vampiric in rushing to get the word out. It goes with the time sensitive news cycle territory and we all do want to grieve together, but I used to listen to his drumming with my dad and have an emotional connection to it so need to sort of go with my gut and wait until I feel like writing more after the feeling sits with me awhile. I know Neil Peart was a pretty astounding mind though and would probably view the afterlife as another horizon or learning experience, so I will leave it at that for now. Before I go listen to “Subdivisions” again today I will post some Code Orange news, on a different musical note!

The popular East Coasters are back in March (3/13) with a new Roadrunner release, this one called Underneath. Peep the first, semi-industrialized and vibey af video below. It’s catchy, memorable, moody, loud and it jams. Pre order HERE. I love this band and think they continue to do an admirable job of growing bigger while straddling that link between the underground and bigger rock awareness “market” with big tent energy vibes instead of elitism. Rock isn’t the hottest genre these days so more power to them for staying the course and still aiming high.

Album Review: Code Orange – “I Am King”

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Saturday, August 30, 2014 at 12:22 AM (PST)

I Am King from Code Orange (formerly Code Orange Kids) is a divisive record. I get that the band wanted to maybe mature a bit, drop the “kids” tagdespite most fans obviously preferring it, as well as evolve their sound. I still can’t tell how I really feel about the sonic results, however. Most of I Am King, which the band says they will draw almost exclusively from live for the forseeable future, is kind of like brief experiments in sludge. I remember once wanting to star a project to see if I could take great dub reggae basslines and somehow make them into two minute ramones length songs with great looped beats, instead of the drawn out dub of, say, old school King Tubby. Would it still work? On I Am King, the answer seems to be yes and no. There are many highlights here, from the thundering bass of “Thinners Of The Herd” to the welcome fast hardcore of “Unclean Spirit”, but some sections of the record kind of meander aimlessly. Still, it seems like most of this material would work better live. I have a feeling this is a grower, as depending on my mood it has either resonated with me or kind of waxed and waned.
