Formed when vocalist Daniel Jordan answered Derek Kinsella’s (Bass) ad for a singer in Dublin Ireland, Kopek have spent the last number of years touring the world and garnering massive praise for their debut album White Collar Lies (2010). The album is a confident display of their song writing talent and takes the listener on a journey through many different musical styles and colours. From the bluesy rock of lead single Cocaine Chestpains to the pulsating groove of Love is Dead, Kopek display a raw power and a musical competency that has seen them impress on the airwaves and on the live circuit in both Europe and America.
Their debut single peaked at number 25 on Active Rock Radio in America, and number 10 on Active Rock Radio in Canada. This radio success allowed the band to embark on an extensive tour of North America where they played support to such bands as Papa Roach, Hinder, and Buck Cherry to name but a few. Their increasing reputation as a formidable live act, coupled with their success at radio, saw them play a number of headline shows along the way.
Following this success, White Collar Lies was re-released in Germany. The band returned home and played a couple of support tours in Europe, culminating in their own headline tour around Germany. This did not go unnoticed. After Campino, from Die Toten Hosen, championed their track Love is Dead, Kopek were invited to join the band on a support tour around Germany and Austria which saw them garner huge acclaim for their live show. During this tour Kopek road-tested some new material to a fantastic response. This served to increase the excitement for the arrival of their second studio offering.
After this extensive touring, a trip back into the studio was long overdue. As well as being a fantastic live band Kopek are also an incredibly creative force. The experiences of the road and their observation of the world left the band with an abundance of inspiration for a new record. They returned to the studio in June 2013 to begin recording their second album. A couple of the tracks were passed out to industry insiders which resulted in Kopek securing a global major label deal with BMG Rights Management. The rest of the record was completed over the following months and was released worldwide on November 7th 2014. Now ready with their eagerly anticipated second album, “Rise”, Kopek intend to revisit their thousands of fans and also, with the added infrastructure of a major label, reach a wider audience with their powerful style of rock music. The people have been waiting and there is no doubt that Kopek are about to deliver.
