It’s been a ripper second year of existence for trio Camp Cope, riding high after the release of their self-titled debut (which we named the best album of 2016 so far midway through the year.

Not content with just kicking goals in the studio and on the stage, the band have just announced their last headline gig of 2016 with one of the best posters we’ve seen in recent memory.

Announcing a Melbourne show with support from Harmony and Two Steps On The Water (who were recently supported by Camp Cope at The Tote), the band also revealed a sick poster by Shaun Thatcher – it’s a goddamn oil painting. It shows the band chilling on a bench, with Harmony as astronauts and FBI agents for some reason, along with a volvo, UFO, cooked celestial koala, and a hammerhead shark.

Recently, Camp Cope hit it for six with a Like A Version performance of Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ ‘Maps’. They also launched the ‘It Takes One’ campaign against harassment and assault. Plus they’ve recently been announced on the stacked 2017 Laneway Festival bill.

Camp Cope perform with special guests Harmony and Two Steps On The Water at Northcote Social Club on Saturday December 17. Ticket details here.

Check out the poster below. Prepare your eyeballs.
