Yourcodenameis:Gordy Details have been announced of the much-anticipated sessions album coordinated by Geordie quintet Yourcodenameis:Milo and featuring collaborations with bands such as Maximo Park, The Futureheads and The Automatic.
The album, entitled 'Print Is Dead Vol. 1', is set for release on November 6th, preceded by a single, 'Wait A Minute', which features Bloc Party's very own Gordon Moakes on bass duties. This will be available as a strictly limited 7" vinyl and download from October 2nd.
Speaking to Gigwise about his appearance on the album, Gordy said:
"I appeared on a frosty December day after months touring the world with the Bloc. We finally found time just before Christmas. I'd loved 'Ignoto' (Yourcodenameis:Milo's debut album) so a chance to hang out, even butt musical horns as it were with Milo was something I relished."
"Our track started pretty simply: I just mentioned something about Les Savy Fav and Justin started putting down a groovy little beat which we built some slinky hooks over."
"I said it should all kick off and sound dense at the end and Paul wrote that riff which appears at the end. I piled it up with moving chords on the bass to make it sound thicker, and we all loved it straightaway."
