Their later albums, such as Forever and Underneath, incorporated elements of grunge, electronica and industrial. They have received one Kerrang!

In 2012, four of the band's members – Reba Meyers, Jami Morgan, Joe Goldman, and Dominic Landolina – formed the rock band Adventures; however, this group disbanded in 2016.
The band formed under the name "Code Orange Kids" in 2008 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. They started out playing "really straightforward punk," but would eventually take their music in a heavier direction with the introduction of new member, Bob Rizzo, who met members of the band at a local show. By early 2012, the band described themselves as "doomy, abrasive" hardcore punk similar to Black Flag, Converge or Integrity. The band found some difficulty touring in their early days. Because all the members went to various high schools in Pennsylvania, they were not old enough to play at some of the clubs and could only tour between semesters. Despite this, Code Orange Kids opened for such bands as the Misfits, The Bronx, Nekromantix and Anti-Flag. Early self-published releases from Code Orange Kids included 2009's Winter Tour Demo, 2010's Demo 2010 and 2011's Embrace Me/Erase Me. Code Orange Kids released the EP Cycles through Mayfly Records in 2011.
Code Orange Kids announced they signed to Deathwish Inc. in January 2012. At the time of their signing, the average age among band members was 18 years old. In April 2012, the band released a split EP with Full of Hell through Topshelf Records. A Max Moore-directed music video for the song "V " from the EP was also released. Code Orange Kids toured North America with Touché Amoré, Defeater and Birds in Row in April 2012, and toured Europe in July 2012.
