Before they head off, the band will play their first Australian tour in four years this May, with stops in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Castlemaine. Tickets for those shows are on sale now.

‘Running With the Hurricane’, the band’s third studio album, arrived last month. In a four-star reviewNME said the follow-up to 2018’s ‘How to Socialise & Make Friends” was “mature in the best way: elegant with raw edges and seams openly revealed”.

“It has ditched the roughness of the indie punk beginnings Camp Cope was known for, in favour of a pop-meets-country-folk attitude.”

Camp Cope’s Georgia Maq spoke on the songwriting of ‘Running With the Hurricane’ in NME Australia’s February 2022 cover story, saying that the abstract imagery in its lyrics stem from Maq being “in a less literal place at the moment, and a bit more detached from reality”. She added, “I think I’ve gotten a bit more in my own head and a bit more imaginative over the last two years. It feels more metaphorical.”
