Richmond’s Copper Sails release “Hiding Place”

Copper Sails, who have just released their sophomore album, continues to achieve the attention of their audience quickly and with great progress. Already accomplishing mass appeal with the placement of their new song “Sleeping Giant” on ESPN’s “Baseball Tonight”, a program that reaches over 4 million viewers, they continue to gain recognition. They were Chosen as a Budweiser True Music Band, and have performed with national artists such as The Strokes and Switchfoot due to their growing popularity in the Northeast.

“We are very excited about the release of ‘Hiding Place’,” says vocalist/guitarist Jonathan Crawley. “ Over the next few months we’re looking forward to the release of our first music video in support of ‘Hiding Place’, some great tour dates and national opening slots as well as a few licensing opportunities that promise some great exposure in 2009.”

The new album, titled “Hiding Place”, uses textured guitar atmospheres, lush keyboards and dynamic rhythms that stem from the influences of British and American rock bands like Radiohead, Doves, Rogue Wave, Death Cab for Cutie, and Snow Patrol. Copper Sails captured this sound with the help of Mitch Easter (REM, Wilco, Pavement) who mixed it, Greg Calbi (U2, Interpol, The Strokes) who mastered the album, and producer Ted Comerford (Zox, Virginia Coalition, Army of Me). What results is a self-described Brit infused American indie-rock album that vocalist and bassist Boomer Muth says “helps make our music interesting on the first as well as the twentieth listen.”
