Hippo Campus Release CD 'Bashful Creatures' Today Via Grand Jury Music
New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Summer Performances- Lollapalooza, Opening Dates w/ My Morning Jacket + Modest Mouse, & Red Rocks Ampitheatre w/ Walk the Moon

Hippo Campus release their joyously explosive EP 'Bashful Creatures' as a CD today via Grand Jury Music. The quartet of 19-to-20-year-olds formed in St. Paul, MN in 2013 and had played only two shows outside their home state before they rocked up this year's SXSW, unleashing their blend of tight rhythms, seductive vocals and anthemic lyrics. NME hailed the band as "the biggest word-of-mouth frenzy to emerge over the past six months," with Nylon raving, "Dancing shoes are a must at their live shows." Hippo Campus - currently on tour with The Mowglis - will play Lollapalooza and Reading & Leeds this summer, as well as Red Rocks Ampitheatre with Walk The Moon, Northrop Auditorium in their home state with My Morning Jacket and UK opening dates with Modest Mouse. Watch Hippo Campus perform "Suicide Saturday" on Conan:

Hippo Campus - comprised of Whistler Allen (drums), Jake Luppen (guitar, lead vocals), Nathan Stocker (guitar) and Zach Sutton (bass) - recorded 'Bashful Creatures' with Low's Alan Sparhawk. The result is "catchy indie pop rock [that sounds] as though they've been playing long past their teenage years" (Interview Magazine) and songs in which "each instrumental and vocal line has a clear purpose" (Paste).
