The urgency and viscera - both live and on record - that led Yorkshire-based five-piece Hookworms to prominence across two blistering full length albums, 2013’s Pearl Mystic and 2014 follow-up The Hum, remains. However, as they return with their much-anticipated third record Microshift, the band deliver a seismic shift in their sound, dynamic, songwriting and production.

Radiant, immersive and teeming with light but still heavy and forceful, the music on the new LP acts as a very deliberate counter to some of the difficult topics its lyrics address - ranging from death, disease, heartbreak, body image and even natural disaster. Hookworms have pulled off a triumph against adversity, a comeback with what they may see as a ‘Microshift’ but is in fact a massive advancement.

This limited edition LP format features alternate artwork presented in a printed PVC outer sleeve, and is only available through independent shops such as ourselves.
