A LOW HUM October tour! Its huge!

A LOW HUM is back. After a month off, A LOW HUM is back with a Hummmmdinger!

With a tour that can only be described as stupendous, we've got a special treat lined up with a triple whammy of indie goodness taking the reins of the October low hum rollicking road circus. Adjectives aside, I am very excited, to the point of freaking out about this months tour. Having just been nominated for Album of the Year at both the B-net and Tui NZ music awards. The Phoenix Foundation are getting repsect from all sides of the industry, their debut album "Horse Power" is a wonderful piece of work and it is with extreme honour that they accompany A LOW HUM on the road this October, again made possible by the understanding folk at Jack Daniels.

The Phoenix Foundation are the business, so surely this press release ends here. Well not quite.

They left New Zealand to win over the indie pop fans in Australia after releasing one of the finest NZ records around. It has been a criminal amount of time before they've decided to release another record, but its coming soon, and to introduce us to the new songs, ex-pats Cassette are flying back home to join The Phoenix Foundation at every show on the tour!

The Phoenix Foundation and Cassette. Does it get any better? Yes! Try adding a little Phleps & Munro to that mix. Just so punters don't faint in an indie pop heaven overload, we're breaking it up with the break beats, disjointed, eclectic MPC mastery of Phleps & Munro . Responsible for Slow Poke, one of the most innovative and genre destroying records of recent NZ history, Phleps & Munro, the enigma, the mystery is about to play for the very first time in the South Island.

Its an absolute cracker of a tour, and as always, entry includes a copy of the new issue of A LOW HUM.

The last two issues of A LOW HUM have not been in stores because they pretty much sold out on tour. I am fairly positive this next issue will sell out completely. So if you want a copy, get along to the show!
