Following two sold out shows at Sydney Opera House as part of Vivid LIVE, and before they leave to play their first international shows, Melbourne’s Camp Cope have announced a handful of headline club shows supported by New York’s Worriers around Weekender Fest this September. Camp Cope and Worriers will also be touring the US together next month.
Over the past 15 months Camp Cope have become a force in modern music, a wholly independent band who will only do things on their terms, and never compromising on their values. The ongoing impact they have on their fans is evident, from the overwhelming support seen on the ground, to the current online whispers about a new, unrecorded song they have been playing live: a song which tackles how women are treated in the music scene head on.
Camp Cope are heading to the USA next month to play their first international shows as a full band. Georgia Maq played a handful of shows solo in the US late last year, including a date at Fest in Gainesville, Florida, last October which had a library full of people singing along to every word. They will be touring down the East Coast with Cayetana, who toured with them in Australia last year, and down the West Coast with Worriers.
Worriers are a Brooklyn-based melodic punk band whose music is centred around the song writing of singer Lauren Denitzio. Following a splattering of EPs between 2011 and 2014, Worriers released their debut album ‘Imaginary Life‘ in 2015 which was produced by Laura-Jane Grace of Against Me! to critical acclaim. Lauren Denitzio recently supported Julian Baker across her headline shows in Europe.
Tickets for the tour will go on sale immediately. The already announced Weekender Fest show at Corner Hotel has less than 100 tickets remaining.
