HIPPO CAMPUS SIGN TO TRANSGRESSIVE RECORDS

Hippo Campus are four Minnesotan boys making music that is infectious, joyful, and thematically soaked with the sense of cynicism accompanying the youthful search of selfmeaning. Beans, Espo, Stitches and Turntan met in High School and are still yet to hit legal drinking age but following an explosive SXSW which marked the band’s first shows outside their native town the four teenagers that make up Hippo Campus signed to legendary indie label Transgressive Records and are now set to release 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.


Their signing and television appearance serve as exciting markers in what has been a lightning quick but considered ascent for the band, who having just completed their first tour of the US are now set to make a debut trip to the UK for The Great Escape festival. They will then return shortly after for a run of dates with Modest Mouse, and also to play at Reading & Leeds festival.
