Yesterday, the industrious Minnesota youths dropped a new EP, Warm Glow, while announcing a winter tour, which begins later this month and takes them to many non-Minnesotan places like Milan, Glasgow, and Oklahoma City, before wrapping up at the Palace Theatre in St. Paul on February 17, 2018.
It’s been a busy year for the Hippos, or the HC, or whatever nickname we’re trying to saddle them with this time. They released their debut full-length, Landmark. They got named City Pages’ Best Rock Band. They toured all over the place. They were democratically determined to have “crushed” “it” on Conan. They played two free shows at the State Fair.
Tickets for the Palace show are $22-$37 and go on sale this Friday, Sept. 15. There’s more info here. You can listen to the full EP on YouTube.
