Default Hum - Working on a new album & Matt's upcoming Living Room tour

First off, the album. It’s been 80% tracked. All guitars, bass, and drum parts are complete, and Matt has done about 25% of the vocals. He’s never been a touted singer and for this release, he’s put extra attention and work into his vocal performance, hence why vocals have been taking the better part of a month.

Now comes the tough news to break. As I informed this sub in March, there was Fall/Winter plans for touring/supporting the new record, however in late June, Tim was diagnosed with skin cancer and has since undergone surgery to remove the cancerous cells. Doctors believe they have removed all of it before it entered his body, with final check ups coming soon. This tragic news has unfortunately put a hold on the tour, and may delay the album as well so that they can properly circuit/promote it.

Matt has decided to do a northeast “living room” tour to prepare for a future tour, which news broke of this week.

I know you’re all really eager for new Hum, and I do promise it will come (and it fucking slays might I add), but please keep in mind the situation at hand and the sensitivity of everything at hand.

The Downward is Heavenward reissue is still coming, and very soon at that, so keep an eye out on the earth analog page.
Great update from Tim Lash - "Clear"

Matt recently did a solo open mic show at a spot in Tolono, IL warming up for a Living Room Tour through Undertow.

Nice! I was thinking of posting something about Hum the other day. I was listening to them for the first time in a while and it dawned on me how much they sound like SP if Iha had been the lead singer instead of Billy. Glad they are releasing some new material.

Got to see them a couple years ago at St. Vitus and they sounded perfect. Love 'em so much.

Wish I could make it down to Chicago but I highly doubt that's going to happen.

Edit:

And now I can’t wait to share it with you. So, if you’re into it, I will pack up my ’99 Saab with my shitty nylon string guitar, my sadness, some songs from my band Centaur, a few covers, and lots of new songs I have written just for this purpose (which you will be one of the first to hear), and I will come to your house and I will absolutely break your heart too. Yours if you want it.

Sincerely, mt

PS: In the interest of full disclosure, I am likely not including any Hum songs in this performance. I’ve decided might be best to keep that music with the band.
