Copper are back, beginning reunion in Buffalo with Gathering Ground

Buffalo emo band Copper were around for a short time in the mid-’90s, releasing the Freckle 7″ and their sole full-length Drag Queen on Equal Vision before breaking up. Singer Meaghan Ball went on to form Idle Hands, while bassist Garrett Klahn focused on his role fronting Texas Is the Reason. After all this time away, Copper are finally back and they’re kicking the reunion off with a hometown show this Friday (4/6) at Mohawk Place with related band Gathering Ground and special guests (tickets). No other dates are announced at the moment, but we’ll let you know if more are added.

If you aren’t familiar with Copper, they’re very worth checking out and their influence can still be felt today. Meaghan Ball’s powerful pipes are kinda the connecting point between The Cranberries and Rainer Maria, and musically, Copper were definitive ’90s emo. If you’re into Run For Cover/Topshelf/Tiny Engines type stuff today and haven’t heard Copper, you may find that they fit in perfectly with those modern bands. Listen to Drag Queen below.

You can hear Gathering Ground’s sole EP below too.
