Lethbridge, Alberta noise rock duo, Cope, are previewing their upcoming self-titled debut (out April 21st on vinyl, cassette and digital download via Norwegian Blue Records) by streaming their new single “Mother Russia.”

Taking influence from acts such as Local H, Brand New, Death From Above 1979, and Refused, the guys – Mickey Hayward (drums) and Tyson Wiebe (guitars/vox) – began creating music together in an organic manner.

Commented Hayward, “Tyson and I have been friends and collaborators over the past 8 years. A two-piece was always something in reach because of our history of playing together but finally came to be during an extended downtime of our other projects.”
