As per the official press release:
Hippo Campus’ trajectory continues to steadily ascend, playing to over-capacity crowds of enraptured fans at Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza last summer, and headlining the Minnesota State Fair in their hometown. Having sold out their winter/spring landmark release tour last year, the band is hitting the road again for a slew of upcoming US dates, including advance sell out shows at LA’s Fonda Theatre, Chicago’s Vic Theater, Seattle’s Neptune Theatre and NYC’s Brooklyn Steel. To celebrate the first day of tour, the band has released a brand new mesmerizingly kaleidoscopic animated video for landmark album cut, “Buttercup,” directed by Noah Farrar.
Hippo Campus has additionally announced a partnership with Planned Parenthood on the tour, which will see staff members and volunteers at select dates answering questions, handing out Planned Parenthood merch, and more. Of the partnership, Hippo Campus’ Jake Luppen explains, “Hippo Campus stands with Planned Parenthood’s belief that it’s a fundamental right of every person to manage their own fertility regardless of age, ethnicity, gender, income, marital status, or race. We’ve seen first hand the support they’ve given to the young women in our lives. In such dark and confusing times, we believe Planned Parenthood is making a positive change in the world and we stand with them.”
