Inspired by Local H, Shellac, Brand New, Refused, and Death From Above 1979, COPE consists of Mickey Hayward on drums and Tyson Wiebe on guitars and vocals. It’s all about the power of two and COPE is truly powerful. Some of the best creative work has been the result of collaboration between two people, with artistic minds refining and exchanging ideas, with the fluidity and flexibility of the pair creating something truly special. Hayward describes COPE as “loud, thoughtful, noisy, calm and unpredictable.”

COPE came into being in an organic fashion.

“Tyson and I have been friends and collaborators over the past 8 years. A two-piece was always something in reach because of our history of playing together, but finally came to be during an extended downtime of our other projects.” says Hayward.

The first fruits of COPE’s creativity will appear on vinyl, cassette and digital download on April 21, 2017 via their indie label Norwegian Blue Records as an introduction to give listeners a sonic interpretation of what the band is. The EP was engineered live off the floor at Norwegian Blue Studio in Lethbridge, AB under the watchful eye of Chris Lipinski (Atomicos, Lustre Creame) and Q (Supervoid, Stellar Radio Choir). The EP was mixed by Jesse Northey (The Betrayers, Diamond Mind) and mastered by KRAMER (Gwar, Galaxie 500).

Teaming up with PureGrainAudio.com, COPE is premiering their first single 'Mother Russia' at the following link: http://puregrainaudio.com/audio/cope-pay-tribute-to-mother-russia-with-new-single-exclusive-premiere

The duo comments on the track:
"This one is a post-punk inspired track about lovers on either side of the iron curtain. Heavy guitars led by drums that start fast and end fast."

There is much more music to come from COPE. The three tracks on the EP are from the duo’s first writing sessions and they are a strong representation of what the band sounds like. They have more material that they play live and are constantly writing as they plan for a full-length to be released later this year.

Live COPE adds another dimension to their music. They often play a show like a jam session, even though their songs are all arranged and complete, COPE aren’t afraid to let them go and turn them into something weird and new when they play them live as they will on their upcoming tour of Alberta and Saskatchewan this coming April and May (dates listed below).

“Noisy, swelling guitar and heavy, yet articulated drums; played without a plan by Tyson Wiebe and Mickey Hayward. Longtime collaborators, friends, and members of Mormon Girls are taking their focus back to their main instruments to at the very least, Cope. Ingredients: Drums, Guitar, Energy." - Electric Eye Music Festival
