Hippo Campus Shares ‘Demos II’

Hippo Campus have posted up Demos II on streaming services featuring more demos from their recent album.

Today Hippo Campus share Demos II, a collection of new songs written and recorded over the summer of 2017 and the winter of 2018. The new material came to life during the sessions around the band’s most recent album Bambi, and includes such fan favorites and live staples as “No Poms,” “Chapstick,” and “Joy.” The release follows that of Demos I — eight early versions of Bambi songs — which took fans into the world of Hippo Campus’ creative process and demonstrated how the band crafted their latest album, a release which has already amassed almost 50 millions streams. Demos II is available to buy or stream here.

Speaking about Demos II, the band says, “When we made plans to release Demos I it felt like this incredibly cathartic purge. So we decided not only to include the songs that would eventually become Bambi, but also include other things we were writing and working on over the summer of 2017 and the winter of 2018. It means you can hear a pretty expansive document of where we were creatively throughout the process.”

After epic performances at The Governor’s Ball, Bonnaroo, and Firefly, the band recently headed out on tour with The Heart and The Heart, and will be playing at Hinterland and VooDoo Festival this summer. All tour dates are listed below.
