CAMP COPE

UK & European Tour in Aug / Sept  With support from Caves   New album ‘How To Socialise & Make Friends’ out now

 

Camp Cope will make their long-awaited live debut in the UK & Europe this August/September with a 13 date tour across the continent (detailed below). The trio, hailing from Melbourne, Australia, released their affecting second album ‘How To Socialise & Make Friends’ via Run For Cover earlier this year. Its importance has been recognised and lauded by fans and critics alike and the album debuted at Number 6 on the ARIA album charts in Australia, where it was released by indie label Poison City Records. Support on all dates of the tour will come from noisy transatlantic (Bristol / Philadelphia) punks Caves following their headline tour in March. Their latest album ‘Always Why’ is available now from Specialist Subject / Yo Yo  / Dead Broke Rekerds.
 
Camp Cope’s ‘How To Socialise & Make Friends’ celebrates the joys of being an independent unit and knowing who you are without any influence from external factors. The songs that comprise the record are anchored on the cycles of life, loss, and growth through resilience, and those moments of finding and being yourself. If their 2016 self-titled debut was the spark, this is Camp Cope on full-fledged fire, stronger and more focused than ever.

Camp Cope released their highly acclaimed second album ‘How To Socialise & Make Friends’ via Run For Cover earlier this month.

The record celebrates the joys of being an independent unit and knowing who you are without any influence from external factors. ‘How To Socialise & Make Friends’ anchors on the cycles of life, loss, and growth through resilience, and those moments of finding and being yourself. Throughout the nine songs that comprise the album, it becomes clear that, if their 2016 self-titled debut was the spark, this is Camp Cope on full-fledged fire, stronger and more focused than ever.
 
Having just wrapped up a largely sold out headline tour of Australia with support from Chastity Belt, Camp Cope have also now announced a US Tour with Petal this summer.

CAMP COPE - ‘How To Socialise & Make Friends’

New Album out 2nd March, 2018 on Run For Cover

 

Camp Cope will release their highly anticipated second album on March 2, 2018 via Run For Cover. First single ‘The Opener’ is an honest portrayal of the band’s experience as women in music with recently-released title track ‘How To Socialise & Make Friends’ serving as an upbeat anthem of independence, about resilience and being yourself in the face of life's challenges. Highlighting singer/guitarist Georgia Maq's incisive lyricism, the song tells a perfectly observant yet sarcastically blistering tale of expectations abed crunching guitars, clashing drums, and melodic bass hooks. The album was recorded over two days at Holes and Corners in South Melbourne with Sam Johnson in October 2017.

 

The forthcoming album celebrates the joys of being an independent unit and knowing who you are without any influence from external factors. ‘How To Socialise & Make Friends’ anchors on the cycles of life, loss, and growth through resilience, and those moments of finding and being yourself. ‘Anna’ and ‘Sagan-Indiana’ speak to the love you feel towards friends - the women who shape you and work together to find strength in numbers. ‘The Face of God’ is a raw account of sexual assault and the feelings of isolation that follow, and album closer ‘I've Got You’ showcases vocalist and guitarist Georgia Maq solo, singing of her late father's battle with cancer and their close friendship that prevails, even in death. Throughout the nine songs that comprise ‘How To Socialise & Make Friends’, it becomes clear that, if their 2016 self-titled debut was the spark, this is Camp Cope on full-fledged fire, stronger and more focused than ever.

 

The album has been cited as one of 2018's most anticipated album releases by  Rolling Stone Australia, with first single ‘The Opener’ receiving worldwide praise. 

 

Camp Cope have become a force in music since forming in 2015. Their Australian Music Prize-shortlisted self-titled debut saw critical acclaim from all corners. They sold out two shows at Sydney Opera House as part of Vivid LIVE 2017, headlined Melbourne's Weekender Fest 2017, and toured the US for the first time in summer 2017, playing through 13 states with Worriers.
