Biography

North East England, UK (2002 – 2007)

Formed in 2002, Yourcodenameis:milo were an alternative rock/experimental/math/post-hardcore band from Washington, Tyne & Wear, in North East England, UK. They released their debut mini album All Roads To Fault in 2004, which was followed in 2005 by the album Ignoto, both on Fiction / Polydor Records. In 2006 the band left their Polydor contract and within a month signed a new record deal with V2 Records. In November 2006, the band released Print Is Dead Vol 1, a side project album featuring collaborations with other artists. The band’s final full-length album, They Came From The Sun, was released on April 2, 2007.

The five band members were Adam Hiles (Guitar), Justin Lockey (Lead guitar), Paul Mullen (Vocals/Guitar), Ross Harley (Bass guitar), & Shaun Abbott (Drums/Percussion). On 16 January 2006 the band announced that former drummer Paul Gamble-Beresford had left Yourcodenameis:milo under amiable circumstances and was to be replaced by Shaun Abbott.

Yourcodenameis:milo’s style was influenced by earlier post-hardcore/progressive bands, especially the likes of Cave In, Shellac, Fugazi, and At the Drive-In. Themes such as space/sci-fi dominate their sound and elements, such as track titles and artwork, were often quirky and in-line with a very specific motif the band created for themselves (The Designers Republic are responsible for the band’s early artwork with Storm Thorgerson producing artwork from the Rapt. Dept. EP onwards).

Yourcodenameis:milo announced on the 21st August 2007 that they had decided to put Yourcodenameis:milo on an indefinite hiatus. Members have since joined other groups including The Automatic, The British Expeditionary Force, LOSERS, We Are Knuckle Dragger and Young Legionnaire.

    Someone I know who dates the drummer from the band's later days said for me to keep an eye out but that was months ago. Paul still jams with at least one other original member so far as I know. I wouldn't say a reunion is that unfeasible, just not expecting all original members as they're doing such different things now. Saw Bez walking around Newcastle in a suit one day, ages after he left the band. He'd got a 'real job', I understood but was a bit gutted haha.

    2fuzzle3: i think the shoutbox is dead because the only thing that can unite all milo fans is reunion. It would be such a beautiful view. But we can only dream about it. You never know what can happen. So here's your 17 bsides https://www.dropbox.com/s/71luel69mejkuds/17bsides.zip

    Scandinavia from Peel Sessions sounds really great, too bad it wasn't published as studio record.
