Copeland’s self-proclaimed farewell album, Ixora, made a dent in the charts its first week available for purchase. The Lakeland, Florida band originally crept into the scene in 2001, their debut album dropping two years later, Beneath Medicine Tree.

Signed to The Militia Group early on, the band quickly was absorbed into the hardcore scene with labelmates like twothrityeight, Dogwood, Slick Shoes, Noise Ratchet and many more. The band most recently partnered with Tooth and Nail in 2008 and shortly thereafter disbanded. They reunited earlier this year with a promise to release Ixora as their final release.

Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
