Camp Cope has announced that they will be embarking on a North American tour later this year in support of the latest album “Running With the Hurricane”.
The Melbourne trio will begin the race in Boston on July 8, then continue to Toronto, Washington, New York, Philadelphia, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles and more. The presale starts next Monday (May 2) at 10:00 a.m. local time – more info here.
The itinerary will include three dates with Lucy Dacus – in Toronto, Montreal and Lexington – as well as an appearance at this year’s Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago. See all tour dates below.
Before leaving, the band will play their first Australian tour in four years in May, with stops in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Castlemaine. Tickets for these shows are on sale now.
“Running With the Hurricane,” the band’s third studio album, arrived last month. In a four-star review, NME said the sequel to 2018’s “How to Socialize and Make Friends” was “mature in the best way: sleek with raw edges and openly revealed seams.”
“He ditched the gritty, early indie punk that Camp Cope was known for, in favor of a pop-meets-country-folk attitude.”
Camp Cope’s Georgia Maq talked about writing “Running With the Hurricane” in NME Australia February 2022 cover story, saying the abstract imagery in his lyrics stems from Maq being “in a less literal place at the moment, and a little more detached from reality”. She added: “I think I’ve had a little more in my head and a little more imagination over the last two years. It seems more metaphorical.
