Agent Cooper release new song as free download, announce Atlanta show with The Dreaded Marco.
September 7, 2011 Atlanta, GA – Agent Cooper have released the first song from their upcoming EP as a free download through ReverbNation.
The debut performance of this new music will be on October 1st, 2011 at The Peachtree Tavern as support for Atlanta band The Dreaded Marco’s CD release party (featuring Dixie Duncan on guitar and Mike Froedge of Black Label Society on drums). Six Shot Revival will also be performing. Doors open at 9:00pm.
“Mother” is the first song made available from a series of EPs the band will be releasing over the next several months into 2012. This is also the first recording to unveil Ganesh Giri Jaya as the newest member of the band on drums and Mike Martin on lead guitar to round out the five-piece with founding members Doug Busbee, Eric Frampton and Sean Delson.
In an era when recorded music sales are increasingly difficult to rely on for revenue, the band are offering the song as a free download in an effort to engage new fans in social media and promote concert attendance. Agent Cooper believe that music is meant to be performed and that live shows are an essential part of bringing people together. They will be premiering three new songs at the show on October 1st and plan to tour in support of the new releases.
