White Collar Lies
Label: Religion Music
Release Date: 3/1/2011
Kopek is the best thing that has come out of Ireland since U2 and the Riverdance guy. The band won the title of “Best Live Act” at the Global Battle of the Bands. The prize was $100,000 and a world tour.
It wasn’t until 2009 when a Dublin based record company, Religion Music, signed the trio to a multi-album deal. Their first album and current release is White Collar Lies.
White Collar Lies is a solid piece of rock and roll put together on a disc. It’s radio hits like “Cocaine Chest Pains” that are winning fans over. Yet the tracks that really stand out on the album are “The Easy Way (D.B. Cooper)” and the motivational car song, “Bring it On.”
These guys are currently on tour with RED and Hinder. They have a 1 year VISA here in teh United States so expect them to keep busy on the road.
They were previously on the road with Cold. It was an odd bill for a tour and unfortunately for Cold, Kopek stole the show. Kopek kicked ass as the opener and then Egypt Central, another hard rock band, took the stage. Cold hit the stage and put the crowd to sleep.
Kopek’s set was so rock and roll that I could really see these guys opening for the likes of Seether rather than Cold. At least the new tour has them paired up with rock bands RED and Hinder.
Kopek’s White Collar Lies is definitely a keeper and their live show is even better.
