Watch the video directed by Sam Wiehl now. New album out this Friday.
On the eve of the release of new album Microshift, Hookworms have shared new the video for new track, ‘Each Time We Pass’. Featuring vocals from Alice Merida Richards from Virginia Wing, the track is a stand out from Microshift and marks one of the band's first fully collaborative pieces of music. The band’s long-time AV projectionist and video artist, Sam Wiehl has created the video to accompany the track which features 3D scans of the band, their friends and fans. Check out the video HERE.
On ‘Each Time We Pass’, the band have said:
“This track was the first time we have ever truly collaborated with an artist external to the band, in the most modern sense of the word. It was an extremely rewarding experience and it is one of the only Hookworms songs where I can happily stand back and admire it as it had been written by another band.”
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.
Microshift will be available on deluxe limited edition LP (including orange colour vinyl, exclusive alternate artwork sleeve, and printed PVC outer sleeve plus bonus hand numbered screen print limited to 500), deluxe LP, standard LP, CD and download.
