“it’s another all-male tour preaching equality…”
‘The Opener’ is a no holds barred account of what it’s like to be a woman in the music world. Told through the clever lyrics and winding bass hooks that Camp Cope have become known for, ‘The Opener’ calls on the men who’ve told them to do things every other way but their own. It’s the first cut from their highly-anticipated, yet-to-be-titled second full-length album, which will be announced in the coming weeks.
Despite no new music being released so far this year, 2017 has been a belter of a year for Camp Cope. They sold out two shows at the iconic Sydney Opera House as part of the annual Vivid LIVE festival this year, made their highly anticipated touring debut in the United States where they played to adoring crowds across 13 states with US band Worriers, and headlined Melbourne’s Weekender Fest – a festival which they were opening band for two years earlier – and all between countless shows across Australia.
Camp Cope – Georgia Maq (vocals/guitar), Kelly-Dawn Hellmrich (bass) and Sarah Thompson (drums) – have become a force in music since forming in 2015. Their Australian Music Prize-shortlisted self-titled debut saw critical acclaim from all corners – it was included in SPIN Magazine’s best emo of 2016 and top albums in Noisey (US), with Brooklyn Vegan naming them one of the ‘Best New Bands’ and DIY Mag exclaiming, “it’s rare to find a band with the sheer songwriting ability and integrity of Camp Cope.”
Camp Cope will be previewing their forthcoming 2nd LP at Melbourne’s most stunning venue, The Forum, on Sunday December 3 with Cash Savage and the Last Drinks, and special guests RVG.

International rock superstars PARAMORE are making their highly anticipated return to Australia for their first headline shows in four years, bringing Tour Four to Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena, Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena and Brisbane’s The Riverstage this February.

Paramore’s fifth album was recorded at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A – also their first time recording in their beloved hometown. Produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen (M83, Jimmy Eat World, Beck) and Paramore’s own Taylor York, After Laughter signalled the return of founding member Zac Farro to the band. It debuted at #3 on the ARIA Charts, featuring the hugely successful singles ‘Hard Times’ – which has had over 50 million views on its colourfully playful video which Billboard declared “addictive” – and ‘Told You So’ which saw over 7 million views in its first two weeks alone.
Long regarded as an exhilarating live act with a non-stop show led by the fearless Hayley Williams, with Taylor York on guitar and Zac Farro back on drums, Paramore are a bona fide juggernaut, selling over 6 million albums and leaving a trail of sold out headline arena tours in their wake. They have sold out iconic venues around the world including Madison Square Garden and Wembley Arena, and performed show-stealing headline festival sets at the likes of Reading and Leeds Festivals, Riot Fest and their own four-day festival cruise PARAHOY!. With Tour Four hitting some of Australia’s most well-loved arenas, these will be Paramore’s first headline shows Down Under since their last tour in February 2014.
Paramore have had a truly remarkable run since forming in Nashville in 2004, from their gold-certified debut All We Know Is Falling (2005), to 2007’s 2x platinum breakthrough Riot! and platinum-certified albums Brand New Eyes (2009) and Paramore (2013). The Grammy-award winning band have consistently drawn both critical acclaim as well as a wide-ranging list of international honours and accolades, multiple Grammy nominations and a win for Best Rock Song (for ‘Ain’t It Fun’), two People’s Choice Awards, three NME Awards, three MTV Video Music Award nominations and much, much more.
