COPE take on the A-Z challenge!

September 25, 2017 |



Heavy punks COPE are gearing up for the October 13 release of their Tooth & Nail EP. We asked the band to take us further into their world by taking on our A-Z challenge!

A song that made you want to make music?

Green Day - Basket Case

Best rider you've ever hd?

Probably Rock City in Notts, they kept us nice and beer'd!

Craziest moment you've experienced in the band?

Haha, I can't say the craziest. But me, Ed & my girlfriend almost got crushed by an arctic lorry on the road on tour the other month. That was pretty nuts.

Deepest lyric one of your songs features?

Gotta be 'Through Silence / You Become Complicit' from Neo Nasty off of our upcoming EP. It's not quite 'deep' as it's fairly obvious, but it carry's a lot of weight and means something to us.

Easiest song you wrote?

'Here's Hoping' from the first EP, 'Challenge Oppression // Pursue Equality' - I think me and our old guitarist wrote it in like 2 hours

Favourite song in your set?

Definitely 'Voyage', that ones a blast to play!

Guest you'd most like to feature on your record?

Dave Grohl, the guy can do no wrong.

Hardest thing about being in a band?

Financing it and balancing it with general life. It's totally worth it though.

Interesting fact about one of your members?

Rich, our drummer was in a Lethal Bizzle video! I must admit i've forgotten which one.

Jokes you have in the band?

We always make fun of Rich's social media - he's obsessed, so we've nicknamed him '#content', hashtag an' all..

Key to writing a song?

Not forcing it and not being afraid to criticise yourselves 

Longest distance you've traveled to play a show?

We played a festival in Torquay which should've taken 4 hours, but there was an accident on the way there and it ended up twice that. Could've been worse!
