On an accompanying interview shared with the guitars release, Reba Meyers has detailed the importance of female representation in guitar-driven music, sharing:

“When someone goes to the ESP site and looks who the artists are, they see Code Orange, and it isn’t necessarily a conscious thought, but helps start the process to make it more in the norm to see a woman guitar player in heavy band, representing a heavy guitar company.

It’s not just a matter of working with bands who happen to have women either. What it’s about is finding bands with women who can help lead and inspire others, and be looked up to in a positive way. Not just fly-by-night bands, that won’t have lasting effects.”

Code Orange will be heading to Australia in March for Download Festival and a one-off Brisbane sideshow. Details below.
