Share new track ‘Static Resistance’ – Watch the video HERE
New album Microshift out February 2nd 2018
To kick off 2018, Hookworms, have today shared the new video for ‘Static Resistance’ the latest track from their forthcoming album, Microshift, due for release on February 2nd 2018. Watch the video, directed by Ciaran Lyons HERE.
On ‘Static Resistance’, the band have said:
“Static Resistance is the oldest track on the album, we wrote and recorded the first version of it early 2015, not very long after The Hum had been released. It’s one of only two pre-flood songs on the record. It’s a song about the wax and wane of depression and an eternal want to escape the life you’ve built.”
Along with new music in 2018, Hookworms will return to the live circuit across Europe and the UK. A full list of dates and ticket links can be found below.
Microshift is the Leeds band’s first new work in over 3 years and marks a seismic shift in their sound, dynamic, song-writing and production, whilst still bearing all the ferocious energy, intricate musicianship and bruised but beautiful song-craft of the previous releases which have quietly made them one of the UK’s most revered young bands.
Radiant, immersive and teeming with light, but still heavy and forceful – the music on Microshift acts as a very deliberate counter to some of the difficult topics the album’s lyrics address. Death, disease, heartbreak, body image and even natural disaster are all present here but the overall effect these songs achieve is euphoric catharsis.
Hookworms are MJ, MB, JW, JN & EO.
