London based hardcore punks COPE have just released a brand new song called ‘Life In 3D’, which acts as the lead single from their forthcoming debut album, ‘The Shock Doctrine’.
Guitarist Josh Bowles spoke further on the track.
“The inspiration for this track actually goes way back to 2012, when this Texan dude made the first 3D printed gun and put the blueprints online. Since then, he’s been convicted of child sex offences and is no longer a key player in the movement (stand up guy, right?) but the damage has been done. These blueprints have already been downloaded thousands of times by fuck knows who, so it’s only a matter of time before that leads to a tragedy. I am all too aware of the US’s gun culture, and if this isn’t worth screaming about and drawing attention to, I don’t know what is.”
You can check out ‘Life In 3D’ and its accompanying video below.
The band’s debut album, ‘The Shock Doctrine’, will be self-released on May 22nd 2020.
Pre-orders are expected to be made available soon.
