Lakeland, FL – May 18, 2015 – Copeland has partnered with VEVO to exclusively premiere their new video for “I Can Make You Feel Young Again” today, here: http://bit.ly/1HnqIrv. The video was directed/cinematographed by Cale Glendening and the band’s main lyricist, Aaron Marsh, speaks on the track telling us, “I’ve been trying to write songs that feel as other-worldly as love itself. “I Can Make You Feel Young Again” is another surreal story of the head vs the heart.” Copeland is currently performing as the sole support for Paramore’s “Writing The Future” tour, as well as playing a few of their own headlining dates along the way.

Copeland, consisting of Aaron Marsh, Bryan Laurenson, Jonathan Bucklew, and Stephen Laurenson, formed in Lakeland, Florida in 2001. The band’s first album, Beneath Medicine Tree, came out in 2003 on the indie label The Militia Group. The album’s layered melodies, combined with Marsh’s thoughtful, emotive croon, immediately engaged music fans, offering a nuanced take on the emo music of the early ’00s. The group unveiled four subsequent albums between 2005 and 2008, including Eat, Sleep, Repeat on Columbia Records in 2006. Copeland signed with Tooth & Nail in 2008 and partnered with the label to release their long awaited sixth album, Ixora.Released on November 24th, Ixora charted at #10 on the Billboard Alternative Charts, as well as charting on the CMJ Top 100 Radio Charts.
The musicians spent much of 2014 working on new music, pulling some tracks from older material they’d set aside — one song,“Like I Want You,” Aaron found in a folder on his computer from 2009 and appears on the new album as a bonus track. Bryan and Stephen spent eight weeks in Florida at Aaron’s studio with Aaron at the helm of the production. “It was like picking up where we left off,” Aaron notes. The final ten-track album was also mixed by Michael Brauer, who has worked with everyone from Bob Dylan to Coldplay, at Electric Lady in New York.
Copeland officially broke up in October of 2009 after nine years as a band. In their heyday, the band played over 200 shows a year. They’ve toured with Brand New, Sparta, Goo Goo Dolls, The Rentals, Bob Mould, Switchfoot, Motion City Soundtrack and Guster. Copeland has also historically supported new artists and Paramore’s first ever show was opening for Copeland in Nashville in 2004.
