Camp Cope How To SOcialiseAhead of the March 2 release of How to Socialise & Make Friends, adored local trio Camp Cope have released a video for single The Opener and added a date to their upcoming tour with Chastity Belt.

Filmed in the Utzon Room at Sydney Opera House, the clip marks the very first time a punk band, let alone an all-female band, has filmed live in the hallowed space (named after Danish architect Jørn Utzon, who designed the Opera House).

In addition, the group have added a second Melbourne show at Thornbury Theatre after the first sold out.

Watch The Opener, and see full tour dates and ticketing details, below.

How to Socialise & Make Friends is out March 2 via Poison City Records.

From the presser: “Camp Cope’s forthcoming sophomore album How to Socialise & Make Friends anchors on the cycles of life, loss and growth through resilience and those moments of finding and being yourself. It celebrates the joys of being an independent unit and knowing who you are without any influence from external factors, and non-romantic love felt towards friends; the women who shape you and women working together to find strength in numbers. A raw account of sexual assault and the feelings of isolation that follow is painted, while the album closer shows Georgia solo, singing of her late father’s battle with cancer and their close friendship that prevails, even in death.”
