Hippo Campus are back with “Kick In The Teeth,” from forthcoming Wasteland EP

Hippo Campus return today with “Kick In The Teeth,” the first new music since last year’s LP3. It comes from a new digital-only EP titled Wasteland, set for release on April 14th. The comeback single plants a stylistic flag for the band: there’s a noticably more freewheeling, twangier edge to the sound and a startlingly straight forward approach to the songwriting. Cowboy era? Maybe? The five song EP comes paired with beautiful creative from Julian Gross, who directed the video above and the art for the project, both horse-forward affairs befitting of this dustier sound. Tracklist and pre-save link below.
