NEWS: Orthodox sell “Body & Soul” to Century Media!
One of a fistful of bands who are bringing Hardcore to a new, disturbing place of unease, anger and brokenness, Nashville Tennessee homewreckers Orthodox have announced their signing from Unbeaten Records to major label Century Media for an in the works third album. It seems that tearing up in the US playing alongside the likes of Kublai Khan, Spite and Knocked Loose, in support of their last album “Let It Take It’s Course” didn’t go unnoticed and alongside that news they have premiered a new single called “Body & Soul” complete with a music video directed by Erick Easterday.
Commenting on the signing, ORTHODOX, who are busily working on that third full length record with producer Randy LaBoeuf (Chamber, The Acacia Strain), state: “Hilariously enough, we signed with CM back in early 2020, waiting to unveil the news until the time is right. Now that that time is here, we’re beyond ecstatic to share what we’ve been working on and can’t wait to see what kind of impressions we can make with this team behind us.”
Century Media Vice President of A&R Mike Gitter also commented: “ORTHODOX’s second album, Let It Take Its Course, was a complete coming of age for not just the band but a record that took hardcore and metal somewhere fresh and uncomfortably emotional. It’s the sort of record that bleeds with real vulnerability and honesty. And it bashes your skull in the process! ORTHODOX is going to be a band that will not only set the standard but will also make records that people will connect with for years to come.”
