Melbourne trio Camp Cope announce their highly anticipated forthcoming album Running with the Hurricane out Friday March 25th. The follow-up to their ARIA nominated, critically acclaimed LP, How To Socialise & Make Friends (2018), Running with the Hurricane uncovers the aftermath of walking through the fire and emerging together, stronger, calmer and happier than ever before.

For this album the band spent longer in the studio, taking the time to fine tune every aspect of the album and layer in piano, backing vocals and additional guitar. Working with engineer Anna Laverty at Sing Sing Recording Studios, who produced the album alongside Maq, the trio were able to create something with the overall plan of, as bassist Kelly-Dawn Hellmrich notes, “just doing something that makes us happy and might make other people feel good too.” They brought in friends Courtney Barnett and Shauna Boyle of Cable Ties to provide added instrumentation on ‘Caroline’/’Sing Your Heart Out’ and ‘One Wink At A Time’ respectively. The resulting sound is still recognizably Camp Cope, just a little softer, a bit more relaxed and much more refined.
Running with the Hurricane pre-orders are available now.
