Hookworms have announced they’re to release a new album early next year! ‘Microshift’ will come out on 2nd February via Domino, and is being previewed by first single ‘Negative Space’.
A shift away from the band’s intense kraut-influenced rock, ‘Negative Space’ falls closer to the likes of LCD Soundsystem and Hot Chip with its propulsive synths.
Hookworms are set to play a pair of dates in Hebden Bridge and Leeds before the end of the year, with a full UK tour following in 2018.
