No promises, but we might have some previously unseen video footage of the recording sessions, coming soon!

Thanks to everyone who has supported us over the past five years. Keep following us online and spreading the word about the music we've made! :)


12/07/14 - Presenting our first ever music video!

It's been a year in the making, from concept to recording to mixing the track and the final edit, and we're now happy to let you see our first music video. The track Happy Breakdown is taken from our forthcoming (as yet untitled) album. Enjoy!


19/06/14 - End of an era

Sorry we've been so quiet lately. We have been working on the record and it's done. However we have some sad news. Copasetics have decided to call it a day.

Thanks to all the promoters who gave us gigs/festival slots, all the photographers who took pictures of us, everyone who came to see us and bought our music and Stig for all his help recording our music. We value all the support we've had - it's been an amazing five years and we're going to miss it.

More news about the release of the album to follow shortly.

26/01/14 - Gigs!

We've just confirmed our first gigs of 2014! We'll be playing Gibson's in York with ACiD DROP on March 7th. Keep at eye on the shows page for our forthcoming gigs.

22/12/13 - Looking back over the year

This year we started recording our first album in January and following three sessions in the studio we've got 8 songs down. We're working on this record with Stephen Taylor who mixed our 2nd EP and it's going well. Just a few more songs to write and then we'll be ready to let you all hear it! We're currently working on a video for one of the tracks and that's also progressing nicely. If you're wondering what's taking us so long - these things take time because we like to get them just as we want them.. and also we're all about the DIY :)

We didn't play so many gigs this year, but we made the ones we played count. We were the main support for The Skints in Wakefield which was amazing. We also got a slot at Rebellion which was a great experience as we'd never been to the festival before - being able to play it was great and the atmosphere and people were brilliant. We also played at Galtres festival for the second time and Punx Inna Jungle in Manchester which was at the coolest venue (Antwerp Mansion). As well as these we played a few other gigs in various places including Burnley, Rawtenstall, Selby, York, Nottingham and Leeds.

So, we just wanna say thanks to everyone who came to see us play a gig this year and hang in there because we'll be bringing you the new album soon (it's worth the wait, honest!). We might even sort out some kinda preview of the tracks in the new year to give you a taste of what's to come. Wishing you all a very merry xmas and a happy new year! See you in 2014!

28/11/13 - Our next gig


31/10/13 - Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! We're not playing a gig tonight but we'll be in Burnley tomorrow at the Kestrel Suite, where we're supporting Sky Valley Mistress and The Nankeens.

A few weeks ago we recorded another two songs at Calder Recordings. We also had some fun with the box of percussion..

We're currently sorting out some of the videos we made during recording and hope to get some of those online very soon.

Yesterday we found out that we'll be supporting The Skints when they play in Wakefield on the 24th November! Keep an eye on here and our Facebook page/Twitter for ticket info.

26/09/13 - We've got some gigs!

Just letting you know that we've got some gigs coming up in Oct/Nov:

8th Oct - The Courtyard, York Uni
1st Nov - The Coliseum at The Kestrel Suite, Burnley
9th Nov - Riverside, Selby

And we're back in the studio in October!

If anyone wants to offer us more gigs... get in touch!!!

08/09/13 - Update!

A couple of weeks ago we played Galtres which was pretty cool... despite the weather! Unfortunately we had to move to an alternative location on the site as our stage (the Galleon, which was like a pirate ship) had no roof. Luckily the stage manager/crew had a back up plan so we played our set in the Pash tent instead. Thanks to everyone who ventured over to have a listen to us - really good to see so many people dancing.
So what's next? Well, we are working on finalising details for a couple of gigs for autumn and we've also got another day of recording. Otherwise we're still doing lots of writing.

15/08/13 - Rebellion was great! Galtres next week!

So, last Thursday we played Rebellion for the first time and it was awesome.

23/07/13 - York gig this Friday!

This Friday we are playing the Road to Galtres gig at The Duchess in York. It's a free show and two of the acts playing will get a slot at Galtres festival in August. Please come along and give us your support - it would be pretty cool to play Galtres again!

27/05/13 - Manchester and recording update

Our gig in Manchester last weekend was one of the best yet - thanks to Tree for putting us on, Francis for doing a great job with the sound and everyone who listened/danced to our set - you were amazing! We're definitely looking forward to playing in Manchester again sometime! We've also now finished recording all the parts for the first half of our new album and it's sounding good! So we're currently busy mixing those with Stephen Taylor and writing the rest of the songs.
