Tonight, Wednesday, March 25th, the band will kick of their first-ever tour with The Mowgli's and Night Riots at The Independent in San Francisco, CA. This summer, Hippo Campus will also open for My Morning Jacket in Minneapolis, St. Louis, and Kansas City as well as play Colorado's historic Red Rocks Amphitheatre with Milky Chance and Walk The Moon

"...the biggest word-of-mouth frenzy to emerge of the past six months. Think of them as a Yank Foals, if you will, with killer choruses to boot." - NME

"[Suicide Saturday] embodies what a good young band is all about -- raw enthusiasm and adolescent energy mixed in with a touch of generational defiance and youthful bluster." - Indie Shuffle

"Hardly out of high school, four boys living just outside the Twin Cities create catchy indie pop rock as though they've been playing long past their teenage years." - Interview Magazine.
