Emo faves Camp Cope have announced the news they’ll be performing via live stream this Wednesday morning (25th March) as part of a virtual, transcontinental punk show organised by UK record label Specialist Subject.
“If we’re all in isolation, why not be in isolation together,” wrote the band on Instagram.
The online event is called ”Distant Together 2: Lost in Your Living Room’. Elsewhere, the lineup features Pennsylvania duo Slingshot Dakota, Lou Hanman of Caves, Big Joanie’s Stef Fi and more. Performances kick off through Instagram Live from 6:30 AEDT on Wednesday morning, with CC going live from 10am.
Camp Cope join a smorgasbord of other artists around the globe who’ve taken to live streaming sets for fans in the past weeks in response to social distancing measures to reduce the spread of coronavirus. Last weekend over 70 Aussie artists, including Julia Jacklin and Stella Donnelly, came together to perform over live stream as part of the tag-team digital fest Isol-Aid.
Earlier this month, the Melbourne trio took to Instagram to encourage fans to stay safe and acknowledge the financial loss that many artists are currently feeling in the wake of cancelled tours due to COVID-19 concerns.
“A lot of plans on hold, and a lot of cancelled tours means a rough time for your favourite bands as doing this thing is often their only source of income. Especially feeling for those who were midway through runs, so keep them in your thoughts and hit their bandcamps if you have a few spare $,” they wrote.
Check out the lineup and set times below, and head here for all the details.
Camp Cope released second album How to Socialise and Make Friends back in 2018.
