Art rockers Copeland to tour then disband in 2010

FLORIDA-based rock band Copeland have announced their intention to break up. The band, who've had several popular Tooth & Nail albums, have posted a band statement: "It has come time for us to move on from Copeland and follow other paths in our lives. We are absolutely grateful to have been able to make music for as long as we have. In the last nine years we've been able to see parts of the world that we never dreamt we would see. We have shared the stage and built friendships with immensely talented artists. We've been afforded the opportunity to make four records that we're extremely proud of. Most of all, we feel honoured that people have cared so much for our band and for our art. . . We couldn't end things without a proper goodbye, so we are planning a final farewell tour in the US this coming spring, as well as one final jaunt around the world to some of our favourite countries." CR

Copeland has been my favorite band since Beneath Medicine Tree. I am a huge lover of music but this is the first time I have actually cried over a band split. This band has changed my life... I wish all the boys well on their future ventures. Their music will always be held dear to my heart.

I understand your pain all too well. It was the first time I cried over a band break up. I have never felt so close to any bands music. They really changed me and I will forever be grateful for what they gave us.
