A journey 1000 miles begins with a single step. Returning home from Europe for a third time, COPIA have spent the Australian summer drafting a more polished follow-up to their independently released inaugural album Eleven:Eleven.
Sharing the stage with the likes of Northlane in Russia and booking their own headline tours across Germany, it wasn’t long before Eleven:Eleven became a word of mouth hit all over Europe with fans travelling from Belgium, Netherlands and Austria to tip their hats in the direction of the COPIA lads. Arriving back in Australia and headlining a tour down the East Coast as well as playing alongside Dream On, Dreamer saw COPIA develop a charismatic reputation on and off the stage through a combination of artistic finesse and unique business minded approaches. Their single ‘Hostility’ was playlisted on The Racket by Lochlan Watt, aiding COPIA in selling in excess of 27,000 hard copies of Eleven:Eleven, accumulate 67,000 plays via streaming services, exceed 10,000 plays on Bandcamp and 400,000 combined listens on YouTube.
The year 2016 will see COPIA enter the studio with Chris Blancato and Will Putney before heading to Europe for promotion and a run of shows to coincide with the release of the new album.
