Hailing from Winston-Salem, NC, Codeseven was formed in 1995 by three brothers (James, Jon, and Matt Tuttle). Growing up in a musical family, and playing together since being toddlers, the progression from youngsters to aspiring musicians was a natural one. During high school, the brothers met Eric Weyer and Daved Owen (who has since left the group), and shortly thereafter, were introduced to Jeff Jenkins through a mutual friend, at which time, Codeseven became a band. The group's first songs were recorded for a demo and later released by local punk label, Huel Records. Codeseven began attracting interest from other labels while the guys were still in high school, and it wasn't long before they found themselves in contract negotiations with Earache Records and The Music Cartel. After deciding to work with The Music Cartel, the band promptly signed and released their debut full-length, "A Sense Of Coalition," in July of 1998. The release featured a cover of Don Henley's "Boys Of Summer," which eventually reached the top of the college radio charts, was aired on the WWF Sunday Night Heat program, and was even played and critiqued on the Howard Stern Show. Codeseven's next release, Division Of Labor was a mini-LP and aptly displayed the band's maturity and musical evolution. The effort was produced by Kurt Ballou of Converge and quickly became an underground hit, garnering praise in such magazines as Hit Parader, Terrorizer, and Kerrang. In 2001, the band began writing their new full-length, "The Rescue," which would eventually be produced by Alex Newport (Nailbomb, Fudge Tunnel). Over the years, the band has toured with the likes of Boy Sets Fire, Saves The Day, and A New Found Glory. Codeseven's older material will appeal to fans of everything from Avail to Poison The Well, while their new material is much more experimental and will likely draw comparisons to such groups as Radiohead and even The Police. hide
