Worm is the newest movie from independent film maker, Andrew Bowser. The film was shot completely with a GoPro Hero 2 camera and features only one edit, meaning the film was shot in two takes. Aaron Marsh of Copeland is writing the score for the movie. Andrew needs help funding the movie and has started a Kickstarter explaining the film and it's costs. You can watch the trailer in the replies as well.
South Florida pop-punkers Every You have posted an update on their Tumblr page. You can head there to stream three songs from their old EP (recommended for fans of The Dangerous Summer and All Time Low) and they will put up an acoustic song when they get 2,000 followers on their twitter. The group will be heading into the studio in early 2011 with Matt Wilbur and Aaron Marsh (Copeland). If you haven't heard these guys yet, get on it.
At last night's show in Austin, I spoke with Aaron Marsh, who informed me that In Motion has been remastered and will be released through Academy Fight Song on vinyl sometime this year. For news of new Person L material as well, you can check out a quick review here.
Our newest ABSOLUTExclusive is a big one. We are proud to bring you a stream of The Morning Of's "Heaven or Hell" - a gorgeous new song featuring Aaron Marsh of Copeland. Head to the band's AP.net profile to stream the goodness. You can pre-order The Way I Fell In, out May 4th, from Tragic Hero or Lab Records.
Acedemy Fight Song is doing a second pressing of Copeland's Beneath Medicine Tree. 200 Seaweed Green/Grey Swirl will be exclusively online and 300 solid white will be sold on tour. Don't miss out on this, it's beautiful.
To Write Love on Her Arms will host Heavy and Light on January 9, 2010 at the House of Blues Orlando. The show will feature acoustic performances by Mat Kearney, Aaron Gillespie (Underoath/The Almost), Bryce Avary (The Rocket Summer), Stephen Christian (Anberlin), Aaron Marsh (Copeland), Zach Williams and Damion Suomi.
Let's see how fast this one sells out. Copeland is selling Beneath Medicine Tree on limited edition vinyl. 500 copies total have been made, with 100 black, 200 coke bottle green, and 200 coke bottle green w/ black splatter. Pick it up here.
We love seeing artists perform stripped down versions of our favorite songs, and we love anything and everything Copeland, so we figured we might as well combine the two. Head to the replies to see Aaron Marsh performing a soulful rendition of "The Day I Lost My Voice (The Suitcase Song)" for our Backstage Sessions.
Copeland have announced two in-store acoustic performances in Louisville, Kentucky and Knoxville, Tennessee for next week. Details are below. Anyone who purchases a copy of You Are My Sunshine at the performances will also receive a free poster.

The Tears of a Child? An uncovered new music video for a new Copeland song has been found. It look's like it's the theme song from an indie film The Mother Of Invention due out in late '09. Check it out here. Anyone know what's going on?
