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 Mornings, The 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 Cope – Georgia 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”).
