Following an explosive SXSW, Hippo Campus were signed to AIM Independent Label Of The Year Transgressive Records. 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.

It was the beginning of a year that saw Hippo Campus go from strength to strength, packing out shows in their hometown and touring both sides of the pond with the likes of Walk The Moon, Real Estate, Modest Mouse and My Morning Jacket, as well as performing at The Great Escape and Reading & Leeds Festival.

Their ascent has seen them pick up support and acclaim from tastemakers in the UK, USA and beyond. Previous singles ‘Suicide Saturday’ and ‘South’ have seen the band named Huw Stephens ‘Single Of The Week’ and led to sessions for BBC Radio 1 and XFM, whilst The Guardian, NME, DIY and Q have all marked Hippo Campus out as an act to seriously keep an eye on. The group also recently performed a set for major US daytime show, CBS This Morning.

Now with their current tour with Little Comets, Hippo Campus are sure to see their popularity continue to rise, especially in the UK.
