Praise for Running with the Hurricane:

“It may have taken a hiatus and a pandemic, but the members of Camp Cope are comfortably settled into adulthood, confident in their decisions”

“ambitious, and surprisingly gentle”
Sydney Morning Herald

“Maq’s singing, always powerful, is more beautiful than it has ever been before, which is fitting given the arrangements are warmer and richer than anything Camp Cope have ever created… a wonderful return, and well worth the four year wait.”
NARC (★★★★★)

it’s heart and soul that shines through… They’ve never been better.” 
Upset (★★★★★)

“Distinct, crooning and softly beautiful”
DIY Mag (★★★★)

“Running With the Hurricane offers enticing glimpses of a more settled band, one teeming with soft hope and resolute joy.”
Under The Radar

“filled with empathy, compassion and encouragement, and there’s a new tenderness in Maq’s voice that makes the music all the more likely to touch your heart.”

“as receptive and unflinching as ever”
The New York Times

“An early contender for album of the year”

“It’s at this point you fully realise Running with the Hurricane will not be the Camp Cope you’ve come to know”

Power-emo trio CAMP COPE are thrilled to release their highly anticipated third album Running with the Hurricane today, through long time label Poison City Records.

Featuring the singles ‘Blue’, ‘Jealous’ and title-track ‘Running with the Hurricane’, the release of Running with the Hurricane has seen incredible support internationally, with coverage in The New York Times, NPR, Pitchfork, NME, CBS Saturday MorningsThe Guardian, Rolling Stoneand many, many more.

Running with the Hurricane breathes growth for the trio, both personally and professionally, and sees the band older, wiser, and more at peace with the world. Running with the Hurricane reflects on faltered romances, secret crushes and vibrating with the confidence that makes you feel like you’re on fire. It’s about taking comfort in knowing who you are, feeling yourself and returning, always, to the city of Melbourne. If Camp Cope’s self-titled debut (2016) was the spark, and How to Socialise & Make Friends (2018) was the fire, Running with the Hurricane is Camp Cope in the calm after the storm.

Founded in Melbourne over home job tattoos, Camp CopeGeorgia Maq(songwriter, vocals, piano, acoustic & electric guitar), Kelly-Dawn Hellmrich(lead bass guitar) and Sarah Thompson (drums & percussion) – have been a force since the release of their debut album Camp Cope (2016). Their critically-acclaimed follow-up How to Socialise & Make Friends (2018) debuted at #6 on the ARIA Charts with incredible international acclaim including NPR (“Every unpolished moment stuns with turn-of-age earnestness”), New Yorker (“The words, as raw as the band’s nervy energy, spill out as though she’s been holding them in forever”) and The Guardian(“In 20 years, young women especially will approach her and thank Camp Cope for encouraging them to pick up a guitar and tell their own stories”).
