This is the kind of hardcore noise punk you listen to when you want to set a trash can on fire and throw it through a window while your best friend spray paints his mohawk green and your girlfriend slams some dude’s head into a wall like “Mike” does in SLC Punk. This is HELLS from Philly and they’ve just released their EP Paradise. And this is what their guitarist Brad Wallace, who also recorded the band’s debut, had to say about it.
Holding their own on the Victory Records Stage, Code Orange brought out the inner-mosh in all who watched. From their brutal, overlaid unclean vocals to their energetic stage presence, Code Orange proved that they are no longer kids and can hold their own at festival as tried and true as Mayhem.
Though the pavilion seating arrangement made for an awkward main stage dynamic, TDWP did not hold back. Blaring fan favorites from “Outnumbered” to “Danger: Wildman,” the metalcore heavyweights even made sure to showcase their new single “Supernova” from their upcoming Space EP.
Check out the live photos in the gallery below from their Mayhem performance at New Jersey’s PNC Bank Arts Center.
