Hello Hum Drops On North American Tour!
“Nothing Is Anything (Without You)”
Acoustic MP3 Released With FILTER Magazine
“broods, billows and stalks the listener with soaring vocals, punching drums and waves of guitars.” – Wall Street Journal
“…catchy, pop-friendly hooks.” – FILTER
“Wintersleep have a tendency to cut straight for the gold with infectious guitar lines and persuasive, high-energy choruses.” – Pitchfork
After months of anticipation as the band has shared several singles from their new album, Wintersleep unleashes Hello Hum on Roll Call records/ILG. Co-produced and mixed by Dave Fridmann (MGMT, The Flaming Lips) and Tony Doogan (Belle & Sebastian, Mogwai), the album has received accolades from Paste Magazine and MTV Hive to MSN. For an early taste, the album stream premiered with AbsolutePunk and will be streaming all week with AOL Spinner. A special acoustic version of album single premiered with FILTER . Download “Nothing Is Anything (Without You)” HERE. The record is available now via iTunes and all digital retailers.
Recorded during the summer of 2011, Hello Hum comes as a follow up to Welcome To The Night Sky, which earned the band a Juno Award in 2008, and 2010’s New Inheritors, which landed Wintersleep a live performance on The Late Show With David Letterman. The album is characterized by resonant harmonies, rich layers of elaborate instrumentation and ear-catching melodies, with upbeat tracks that burst with energy and soft, subdued ballads that show a more vulnerable side of the band.
Currently in the midst of a US tour, Wintersleep fans will have the chance to hear the band’s new material live this summer. Having already seen successful tours around the world and shared stages with acts like Pearl Jam, Paul McCartney, and Broken Social Scene, be sure to catch Wintersleep live in your city!
