Codebreaker celebrates the arrival of summer with a new 12" called "Follow Me," on its own Disco Demolition Records.

The disc is the first in what front man Steven Hawley promises will be a "whole host of collaborations, remixes from and for some of dance music's most exciting, tasteful artists."

The band (unlike a lot of dance music outfits, Codebreaker is actually a highly qualified live band) played the track at its South by Southwest showcase in March and the tune has been remixed by The Juan MacLean, Bottin and The Outrunners.

Hawley himself calls the tune, "Shamelessly anthemic, warmly futurist, exciting and magical."

Order the record here. It is also available on most digital outlets, including iTunes,, Juno and Verizon.
