Lakeland Indie Band Copeland Reunited Thanks to an "Outpouring of Support"

After a successful indie band plays nine years and then breaks up, you might think members would take their earnings and leave the music scene entirely. They might travel the world, experiment with drugs, hit rock bottom, try to hook up with someone more famous to get back on the scene, commit some scandal, hit rock bottom again. In other words, embrace the same douchebaggery many musicians today enjoy.

Not Aaron Marsh, lead singer of Copeland. After the band officially broke up in October 2009, Marsh did the opposite. He settled down, started a family, produced music, and, well, was normal. Six years later, and the band is reunited with a new album, Ixora, and a new attitude.
