    Hum

    The mighty Hum, long deserving their own thread, and now especially so as a new record has been announced by the band via FB:

    "Hi everybody. Hope all are well. We've been staying busy writing new stuff for an eventual record release. Still a long ways out, but it's going really well and we're excited. More on that later.

    If you are in the area, come join us for a day of punishingly loud rock music and jello shots in July. Our dear friends are playing with us and it should be nice time as long as mother nature cooperates. Come early and stay late. 21+

    Cheers."

    They're also playing a show at Matt's bar on July 2 in IL w/ Cloakroom. Wish I could make it to that one

    wow, that's big. Saw them with Failure last year at Webster, and they stole the show.

    There's some leftover tour merch posted for sale on Matt's Earth Analog site:

    http://earthanalogrecords.bigcartel.com/

    Some real cool stuff there if you weren't able to catch the tour last year. I'm kinda worried though, I put in an order 8 days ago and have yet to get an order confirmation or shipping confirmation back from them.

    Unbelievable. They just dropped this on us with no announcement. I’m literally fucking crying with joy, and I haven’t even played a note of this yet..

    Words can’t begin to justify what a new album by these guys means to their fans. We never thought we’d see the day..

    Listening right now... Only two tracks in, already comin' in hot!

    EDIT: Album is hella tight. Kind of a cross between the previous two albums.

    Been meaning to check these guys out after Chino Moreno mentioned they are an influence, this new album slaps! Going to buy the vinyl (once I have some money) Thanks for posting about this.

    I loooove that guitar sound they make at the beginning of Waves, sounds like a digital rush.

    Yeah, this is ridiculously good. At first I thought it was just a big (albeit glorious) riff-fest, but the more I listen, the more these songs open up. The album is extremely cohesive and tightly written. They really progressed their sound to its logical conclusion: doomy, stonery shoegaze with a lot of melodic power. Hum isn't really doing anything NEW here; there are a lot of bands that sound like this. But they sound better than all of them.

    This is also the first I'm listening to them. They actually are slot like Quicksand which is a Deftones adjacent band

    Album is fantastic. I wish it had a little more 90's alt crunch to it, but I completely get what they're going for & clearly wanted to lean more into the shoegaze here. It's logical for a bunch of guys much older & more mature now. I haven't been missing concerts as much as I thought I would, but maaaan do I wanna see this stuff live asap.
