10 Code THE BAND

10 Code: George Paraskevopoulos (bass) –  Stefanos Sakellariou (drums) – Petros Potamianos (vox, guitars) – Apostolos Boules (guitars)

10 Code (tencode) gathered together for the first time around November 2011. They all came from the so-called greek ”alternative” scene, they all played in several (some of which, successful) bands, but 10 Code has been a brand new start for all of them. The band started working on original material and soon began presenting it live, creating a small yet loyal fanbase.

Their first release, “the connection ep.” came out in May 2013 and received very good reviews from the music Press and audience. Superman’s Cape was the single to stand out, gaining airplay time in major FM radio stations. The band became a featured artist in the Jamendo, the world’s #1 platform for free and legal music downloads. Superman’s Cape became one of the top hits ever, with 300.000 plays and 55.000 downloads, as for May 2014.

In May 2014, the “Transmitter” single (with bonus track “Today”) was released as a sneak peek of the forthcoming full-length album. In June 2014, 10 Code performed in the EuroMusic Contest 2014 final in Paris, after being chosen with 9 more artists among 3267 contestants from 40 European countries.

In September 2014, George Paraskevopoulos and Stefanos Sakellariou joined 10 Code, replacing Simos Simeonidis and Dimitris Adamopoulos respectively.

In February 2016 the band releases their debut full-length album, Swiftlets.
