Acclaimed indie rock trio Camp Cope have announced a short Aotearoa tour for early next year.
The Melbourne outfit will perform in Tāmaki Makaurau/Auckland and Te Whanganui-a-Tara/Wellington at the end of January (see full details below). Tickets for the two shows are on sale now via the band’s official website.
Camp Cope have been touring the world in support of their new album Running with the Hurricane, which reached number 11 on the ARIA Albums Chart.
Critical reaction was just as strong, with the Rolling Stone review hailing the band for channelling “heartbreak, failed expectations and insecurity into an intimate collection of tender-hearted indie rock.”
In a 4/5 review, Kerrang! wrote “it’s music for the loveliest of golden summer evenings, but has a greater depth to it that reveals itself with more and more listens, as if it’s coming out of its own shell. And when it does, it’s nothing but wonderful.”
“Shifting away from the gnawing, emo-inflected power-pop of their first two albums, the Melbourne trio ask: Can softness be as invigorating as fury?” noted Pitchfork.
Georgia Maq, Kelly-Dawn Hellmrich and Sarah Thompson will visit New Zealand following a successful run of 2022 tour dates in the US, which saw singer-songwriter Lucy Dacus join them for several shows.
