US rockers Copeland say goodbye to Columbia Records

AMERICAN mainstream rock band Copeland have left Columbia Records. Read a band statement, "There were recently some pretty significant personnel changes at the label and some key people on our team were let go, including our A&R guy. He was the guy that brought us on board and was also our most important contact and voice there. With him gone, as well as a few other important marketing people being let go, there was really no reason for us to be there anymore. At a big label, it's pretty crucial for a band to have those key team members in place. Otherwise, a smaller band like Copeland can get lost in the shuffle of the Beyonces and John Mayers that we'd be competing with for attention. So after months of red tape, we've been released from our contract and are frankly relieved." CR
