‘Suicide Saturday’ which is currently on the XFM evening playlist, is coming out 17th July on Transgressive Records.
Hippo Campus met in High School and are still yet to hit legal drinking age but following an explosive SXSW – which marked their first shows outside their native town – they released their debut EP ‘Bashful Creatures’ (produced by Low’s Alan Sparhawk).
The buzz around the band at the Austin music festival was also noticed by the producers of Conan O’Brien’s television show who booked them to perform single ‘Suicide Saturday’ at the soonest opportunity.
Having just completed their first tour of the US and UK they return for their first UK headline show and a run of dates with Modest Mouse, and also to play at Reading & Leeds festival. In the US Hippo Campus have been confirmed to support Real Estate and My Morning Jacket on their forthcoming tours.
