Introducing London based punk quintet COPE, who are pleased to reveal their new single ‘Seasons Ending’, taken from their forthcoming debut EP.
‘Seasons Ending’ was streamed exclusive with Punktastic.com and can now be heard below. The single will be accompanied by the bands debut music video, which will be released in the next few weeks.
Earlier this year the band released their debut single ‘Now or Never’, which saw them launched into the public eye. They played their first show at London’s prestigious Camden Barfly before its unfortunate closure, as well as playing at Camden Rocks Festival 2016. An impressive feat considering they haven’t even been a band for twelve months.
The name COPE has two meanings, first and foremost the obvious; how do you cope? The second stands for ‘Challenge Oppression Pursue Equality’, the title of the band’s forthcoming EP release. “THAT is the message we want people to take away!” explains guitarist Josh Bowles, when talking about their forthcoming debut. “If you like punk and you’re pissed off with the way the world is and want to vent some energy, whilst singing along to a catchy tune, then listen to us. We’re the voice of this generation and we’ve been quiet for way too long!”
For fans of Every Time I Die and Feed The Rhino, COPE are hungry to be heard and the revolution starts this November.
