What up kopekians??
As I write I am on the bus & on route to our next show in Hirsch Germany. We just left from Munich. Last nights show was pretty cool, it felt like an old school rock show, really hot & sweaty & loud.
Perfect conditions for us Kopek boys to make a real mess! This is our first Tour in Germany & the crowd reaction has been fantastic, even better than we expected. We are making a lot of new friends & fans along our travels.
It is great to be back on the road again it’s been far to long!
We are set for a busy few months of gigs all around Europe.
If you do get a chance to catch one of our gigs in the coming months please come up & say hello.
We wanna meet you all!
Hello & goodbye from somewhere between Munich & Hirsch!
Peace & Love

So we’re back from the UK’s biggest hard rock festival. The “Download Festival” and all we can say is wow! It was our first UK show and we were totally blown away!
The album was only just released over in the UK so we didn’t know what to expect. But what we got was 500 hundred screaming fans singing there asses off! They knew the words to all the songs & were going mental. What a buzz!
We would like to thank everybody for showing up and making this such an special experience for the band. We had big smiles on our faces for the rest of the day!
Thank you Kopekians & thank you Download. We will be back!
Love & Peace

Hello to all Kopekians from Berlin, hope you’re all doing great! Things are going really well here and we’re having a great time and really loving Germany! We play our last show in the Hard Rock Cafe in Berlin tonight and it’s gonna be epic judging by the last two shows. The first show was in Cologne and then we played Munich last night, loving the people and drinking beers bigger than our heads! What’s not to like? lol! We’ll be flying home tomorrow to get ready for download on Sunday with Sound Garden and Black Sabbath. Living the dream! We’ll check back in soon and let you know how it went tonight! Be safe and much love from Berlin

There are certain things that do not happen every day.. such as… us being sent a picture from a notable fan of Kopek – Cliff Williams from AC/DC. He went to one of their gigs and he was blown away. Big fan. (Pic attached)
Cliff Williams – “This band is mind blowing, love em”
To say we smiled would be an understatement.
