Hookworms Stream New Track, LP Out 11/11

Hookworms Stream New Track, "On Leaving" 'The Hum' LP Out 11/11 on Weird World / Domino

Described by the band’s bassist MB as their attempt at “a really minimal two-note rager”, “On Leaving” is six minutes of controlled power, the muscular drumming of new drummer JN gradually clambering up the notches through each repetition of the Leeds’ five-piece’s growling repeato-rock. Refusing to simply rely on a cyclical riff, the track is a testament to the subtle tangents that Hookworms constantly play off each other, keyboardist and producer MJ draping backing call and response melodies across the track, pushing onto more pop plains.

The Hum will be available in vinyl, CD, and digital formats. There is also a limited pressing, deluxe edition of the album, featuring a die cut sleeve, 180g heavyweight transparent vinyl, a bonus 7” with new tracks and MP3 download. Pre-order The Hum via Weird World or iTunes.
