Code Orange last pushed their metallic hardcore to harrowing new extremes on 2020's Underneath, and the outfit are letting listeners relive the nightmare again with a new companion album. The newly arrived What Is Really Underneath? can be heard below.

Said to be "part remix, part soundtrack," What Is Really Underneath? is also said to mark the close of a chapter for Code Orange:

What Is Really Underneath? contains elements of the 2020 album while digging deeper down into the Underneath universe with original unreleased companion pieces. The album, which was produced by Jami Morgan and Eric 'Shade' Balderose, is out now via Blue Grape Music and closes a chapter of the band that saw a Grammy nomination, groundbreaking live-stream performances in the midst of the pandemic, tours with Slipknot, $UICIDEBOY$ and Korn, their Coachella debut, and more.

The new collection also arrives alongside a Balderose-helmed short film — centred around the "Mudman" first introduced in Code Orange's 2017 video for "The Mud" — and an AR game that can be experienced on desktop or mobile, offering players "a labyrinth of clickables, ciphers, games, and Easter eggs."

Underneath was previously named among Exclaim!'s Best Albums of 2020. In 2021, the band hit the studio with Billy Corgan.
