- ORDER NOW: NME Australia February 2022
NME caught up with Camp Cope – Georgia Maq, Kelly-Dawn Hellmrich and Sarah Thompson – in a Melbourne pub to talk about their third album, ‘Running With The Hurricane’. It finds the trio in a more mature stage of their lives and at greater peace with the madness of the world and themselves.
Camp Cope have never been afraid to address society and politics in their music, but ‘Running With The Hurricane’ captures the zeitgeist differently. Talking to NME’s Giselle Au-Nhien Nguyen, the band reflect on their years of fiery activism. “We deserve respect and a safe workplace, and that’s what we’ll always ask for and strive towards,” Hellmrich says.
“It’s definitely fatiguing, and you go through so many different emotions. But we do that together and we’ve become stronger. I think you can hear that now – that strength is there… You can hear our anger and confusion in the first two albums.”

We look back on influential zombie mod DayZ and review Black Country, New Road’s brilliant new album ‘Ants From Up There’.
