Florida-based alternative band Copeland is set to perform their first show in Manila on April 28 at Skydome.
The band is giving the power to their fans to curate their setlist by posting on Twitter the songs they want Aaron, Bryan, Stephen, James, and Jonathan to perform and adding the hashtag #CopelandByRequest.

**Official press release from PULP Live World
PULP Live World and 28 Black proudly announce COPELAND BY REQUEST this April 28, 2016 at SKYDOME, SM North EDSA, Quezon City, Philippines. The massively influential American pop-alternative rock band will be playing a career-spanning set of requests for their Filipino fans who have been waiting for their favorite band to play here in Manila for years. Copeland wants to hear what their Pinoy fans want to hear from them by posting requests and tagging @PULPLiveWorld and @copelandband. We can definitely look forward to cult favorites such as “Erase,” their cover of The Police classic “Every Breath You Take,” “Brightest,” “Take Care,” and many, many more!
COPELAND is currently comprised of original member Bryan Laurenson (lead and bass guitars), Stephen Laurenson (rhythm guitar, backing vocals), Jonathan Bucklew (drums) and founding member and frontman Aaron Marsh. The band was formed in 2001 and first made their breakthrough a couple of years later with their independently released debut album Beneath Medicine Tree. Since then, Copeland released three more critically-acclaimed and commercially-successful albums – In Motion (2005), their major label release Eat, Sleep, Repeat (2006) and You Are My Sunshine (2008) before announcing their Farewell Tour in 2008. In 2014, the band reunited with a new album entitled Ixora.
In an interview with www.substreammagazine.com, Aaron Marsh rationalized on their decision to revive Copeland, “All of our lives lined up between band members and it seemed like a good time to do it. And we didn’t want to wait too long. We’re learning that as people grow up and get families they don’t really care about stuff that they cared about when they were younger, as is the case with us. We thought while we still have an audience we should maybe do something. So, that was another factor.”
COPELAND BY REQUEST will happen at Skydome, SM North EDSA, Quezon City this April 28, 2016 and is co-presented by PULP Live World and 28 Black. Fans have the power to form Copeland’s set list by posting their requests on social media and tagging @PULPLiveWorld and @copelandband (please take note that the artist retain final say over the final set list).
