With just weeks to go until the release of their long-awaited third album, Melbourne trio Camp Cope have announced a national tour in support of their upcoming record.
Set to kick off in early May, the four-date tour will see the group performing on Turrbal Land/Brisbane, Gadigal Land/Sydney, Wurundjeri Land/Melbourne, and Dja Dja Wurrung Land/Castlemaine as they perform tracks from their soon-to-be-released album.
Dubbed Running with The Hurricane, the group’s new record is a testament to their tenacity as artists and friends, while the likes of the title track is representative of the times we find ourself living in, and the difficulties faced by Camp Cope in recent years, with Maq’s vocals assuring us that “the only way out is up“.
Bolstered by greater confidence, and touching on themes of faltered romances, secret crushes, and immense confidence, Running with The Hurricane is Camp Cope at their very best, having gone head-first into the titular hurricane, and emerging as stronger musicians and people.
“The first record was us diving into whatever Camp Cope created, the second album was us when we were in the thick of it, and then this album is about how we’ve come out the other side,” Maq explains. “And we’ve come out stronger, more loving, more peaceful and better friends.”
While Camp Cope’s new album will be released on March 25th, tickets to their upcoming tour go on sale from 11am AEDT on Thursday, March 10th.
Camp Cope’s Running with The Hurricane will be released on March 25th via Poison City Records, with pre-orders available now.
