Discography

Marxist Me EP is our first self-recorded/self distributed/ self promoted EP. Singles from the EP like "Mary & Me" and "Had I Known You'd Be Such A Crappy Friend" have been in rotation at university radio stations in both Miami and Boston since the EP's finish in November. The band is now working on our second DIY EP currently entitled "The Devil Asked For A Stick-Up, So I Gave Him A Murder". Tracks from the forthcoming Ep have already been handed out to local and college radio stations with the anti-folk song "I Fell Off Bonnie While I Was Young" being the flagship track thus far. The single has also recently been made part of DIY Netlabel's fourth compilation album.

Bio

The band itself is a revolving door collective where musicians come in and out as they wish. Our sound can be described by our three biggest influences as a group: Against Me!, Bob Dylan, and Conor Oberst. Other audience descriptions of our "Marxist Me! EP" are: "a mixture of Folk and Punk music", and "provocatively original, breaks your heart and brings it back to beating". The band is originally from Miami, FL where they gigged out for a bit before moving the project to Boston, MA to get closer to what it considered its respective scene/audience. Being a collective, and not just a standard number piece band, makes recording, touring, and especially gigging very different from other bands as one show it may be Ronald singing his heart out on his own or with a stranger from the crowd that knows the song by heart, and on other occasions we've had up to 11 people playing anything from a hack saw, to a series of tuned bottles filled with water. All the shows are different and unique as you never know what you might get from a Hippocrypt show. The band is very dedicated to DIY mindsets as we book our own tours and record our own music with our own equipment. The band has also been known to play shows with band members from other acts as musicians are encouraged to contribute their talents to anything Hippocrypt does including touring, recording, and gigging.
