North Carolina melodic hardcore act Codeseven have announced their decision to reunite. The band have also announced their comeback show, set to take place on August 20th, 2010 in Greensboro, North Carolina at the Greene St. Club. Support on the comeback show will come from Blankface and fellow North Carolina metallers Uzzard.
Codeseven had gone on hiatus in early 2005 after the release of their 2004 Equal Vision Records debut "Dancing Echoes/Dead Sounds."
North Carolina's Codeseven have gone on hiatus (possibly permanent) after ten years together and four albums. The group has issued a lengthy statement:
"Codeseven is celebrating its 10th anniversary! Literally weeks after the oldest members graduated highschool in 1995 the band was formed and has never looked back. Well, not until recently anyway. Unfortunately with this milestone comes some news which we are not excited to tell you about. Codeseven has collectively decided to go on indefinite hiatus. The band is not breaking up but have no plans for touring or writing and will not be making any music for some time.
Yes, there is a possibility that the five of us may never play Codeseven songs together ever again but I am optimistic. We are all still very good friends and still hangout all the time. We are also still very passionate about music and the music we've created over the years. Some of you may be asking well why are you taking a break? The majority of all bands split due to personal or creative differances but neither is the case for us!
Well, over the past few years Codeseven has had some amazing opportunities enabling us to become a full-time band. With a fulltime schedule means the majority of your money is coming from the road. Yes he said it, money! Probably the most unfortunate of all reasons for a band to split, has crippled us. When you start a band the best advice you get is play whenever or wherever you can. Do it for free or drive 10 hours for one show, just do it for the exposure and experiance. Its great advice and it worked for us. It got us our dream which was to tour full time but by that time we had already spent many years sacrificing and putting everything on hold to achieve it. We knew if it didn't work then the future of the band would be up in the air. More...

North Carolina's Codeseven have finished their new album after spending most of June tracking the effort with Michael Birnbaum in Woodstock, NY. Here's what the band has to say:
"...After putting in so many long and stressful nights trying to get everything ready for the studio, it's all over with and the hard work has definitely payed off. To say that were all happy with it would be a huge understatement. I think for the first time we've left the studio with the vision we knew we wanted, and then some."
The record will hit stores later this year via Equal Vision Records. In the interim, the group has contributed an unreleased song to the new Volcom compilation, "The Only Constant Is Change," which will hit stores on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Codeseven has lined up a small handful of August shows. Here's the latest: More...
