Hookworms reveal new song ‘On Leaving’ – listen

Track is the second to be taken from new album 'The Hum'

Hookworms have revealed new song ‘On Leaving’. Scroll down to listen now.

The song features on the Leeds-based band’s forthcoming second album ‘The Hum’, due for release on November 10 via Weird World. The first song to be released from the album was ‘The Impasse’.


Speaking to NME earlier this month, frontman MJ identified the key difference between the new album and last year’s debut, ‘Pearl Mystic’. “There’s a strong sense of identity with Hookworms now which wasn’t necessarily there with the first record because we were still trying out ideas,” he said

To coincide with the release, the band will tour in October with an album launch show scheduled to take place at the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds on November 19.

Birmingham Hare & Hounds (October 25)
Sheffield Queen’s Social Club (26)
Liverpool The Kazimier (27)
London Tufnell Park Dome (28)
Cardiff Clwb Ifor Bach (29)
Bristol Start The Bus (30)
Newcastle The Cluny 2 (31)
Leeds Brudenell Social Club (November 19)
