“I don’t think that I’ve ever come across a duo before who have the ability to produce music as raw & powerful, yet calm & thought provoking, as this!” – Way Out Radio

“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

Kicking off this week, Lethbridge, AB noise rock duo COPE will hit the road for dates in Alberta and Saskatchewan in support of their self-titled debut EP that was released on April 21st and available on vinyl, cassette plus digital download via their indie label Norwegian Blue Records.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.
Their debut 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) plus mixed by Jesse Northey (The Betrayers, Diamond Mind) and mastered by KRAMER (Gwar, Galaxie 500).

Vocalist / guitarist Tyson Wiebe comments:

“The (Cope) EP is made up of the first three songs we wrote as a band, and these tracks are the way we usually open (Cryptid/Mother Russia) and close (Tropic of Capricorn) a set. These songs showcase the many faces of this band flipping through instrumental, punk, metal, and noise rock but it always sounds like us. This is partly because of our band motto: tune down, turn up. We hope these three songs tide people over until we record our full length this summer.”
