Camp Cope were scheduled to appear at A Carry 4 Coins in Brisbane last Friday (February 5). Due to last-minute changes in border restrictions, however, the band had to cancel their appearance. They were replaced on the bill by Adelaide band Teenage Joans.

Camp Cope’s last shows took place in January 2020 at the Corner Hotel, where they supported Courtney Barnett as part of a bushfire fundraiser.

Puru, meanwhile, was set to support Thelma Plum on her national ‘Homecoming Queen’ tour in 2020 before it was rescheduled to May 2021.

She released a new single, ‘Idiot’, in April 2020, but withdrew from promoting it following concerns over ableism.

In lieu of new music and touring, Puru has primarily focused on TikTok, where she has amassed over a quarter of a million likes.
