In a surprising turn of events Copeland have signed with Tooth & Nail Records, making it their third record label in less than two years (after years as the Militia Group’s flagship band, and only a few short months with Columbia). The Nail will release the new record “You Are My Sunshine” on October 14th.
I always really liked their cover of “Every Breath You Take” (see below).
If this was 3 years ago I wouldn’t be surprised at all, but considering T&N’s roster as of late, there is something to be a little puzzled about. It’s the first non My-Chemical-Panic-At-The-Fall-Out band that they’ve signed in far too long. Hopefully its a sign of things to come. Video after the jump.
Newton wasn’t messing around when he said that for every action, there’s an equal but opposite reaction. But odds are he wasn’t talking about Contemporary Christian Music. Specifically the blatant creative burgling of one Sufjan Stevens by one Jonathan Foreman, and one Imogen Heap, by one Tricia Brock.
As an outspoken proponent and critic of the “Christian” music scene, I’ve long said that the industry would be best to either: A) disband entirely, embracing the fact that art is art and being creative is in and of itself an act of worship, or B) overcome the identity crisis that plagues so many of the products, motives, and people within its walls. To of course never stop gauging the relevance and fruit your “ministry” bares, but to get over the myth that says cutting-edge art and a Christian worldview are mutually exclusive.
