Hippo Campus’ new album BAMBI will be released physically on November 23rd! The first 2,000 copies of the LP will be printed on 180g “Midwinter” blue vinyl. You can pre-order yours over in our shop, on Amazon, or as part of a bundle (including lyric book and pin set!) on Hippo Campus’ website now.
But it doesn’t end there. It’s important to us to give back to the stores who’ve supported Grand Jury and Hippo Campus since the start, so we want to make every copy special in some way.
With that in mind, we’re also pressing 1,000 copies on 180 gram “Blossom” Pink vinyl for indie record shops throughout the US and Canada, and another 1,000 copies on 180 gram “Burnt Room” marbled vinyl exclusively for Minneapolis’ Electric Fetus. Fetus is also hosting a private in-store performance from the band on November 21st – two days before the album is out. The first 300 people to pre-order the exclusive will get access to the in-store, where they’ll be able to pick up their exclusive LP and a limited edition Hippo Campus tote. More details here.
But I don’t live in Minneapolis, you say! Where’s my tote? Well, it’ll be at your local record store, too. Starting September 28th, when you pre-order BAMBI at participating stores, you can pick up your tote, then come back for your record on November 23rd. Find your nearest record store here, and make sure they’ll be carrying a copy for you.
And last, but certainly not least, we’re making a deluxe edition LP on 180 gram “Golden” yellow and black marbled vinyl, packaged in a printed polybag and featuring a 24×36 fold-out poster. This version will be available in limited quantities at record stores and on the road with the band later this year. More there soon!
Once these colors run out, we won’t be pressing more. So don’t sleep.
