SANGUINE HUM DUO GIG!

SANGUINE HUM DUO GIG!

Joff and Matt will be revisiting the stripped-back duo formation of Sanguine Hum once again when they return to play at Eppyfest in Cheltenham on Saturday July 20th. Last year saw a brilliantly received set take in almost every release made by either Sanguine Hum or Antique Seeking Nuns. This year the focus will shift to presenting some new music (around 20mins worth) as well as dipping into the Hum back catalogue.

Don’t miss this seriously rare chance to hear some Sanguine Hum music LIVE!! For details, head to the link: https://eppyfest.businesscatalyst.com

NOW WE HAVE POWER PRE-ORDER

The latest album from Sanguine Hum is now available to pre-order!! Now We Have Power is a 14 track, 62 minute album and sees the band continue to explore the imaginative and bizarre world that listeners encountered in both 2013's The Weight of the World (a BBC Freakzone Album of the Year) and 2015's Now We Have Light (hailed as a "masterpiece" by All About Jazz). The album also sees the band reuniting with special guest Paul Mallyon on drums as well as additional guest performances from vocalist Kimara Sajn and trumpeter Mark Kesel. As before, the whole package comes wrapped in a brilliant sleeve design by Meriel Waissman and a 4000 word story booklet.

Sanguine Hum Acoustic Gig

Sanguine Hum Acoustic Gig

For those keen to hear some live Sanguine Hum music, Joff and Matt will be playing a special Sanguine Hum Acoustic show this summer at Eppyfest 7. 

Taking place in Cheltenham across Friday 27th and Saturday 28th of July, this year's Eppyfest features a really exciting line up including among others Gong and the North Sea Radio Orchestra. 

Sanguine Hum Acoustic will be playing on the Saturday and Joff and Matt are busy exploring the back catalogue and are really keen to try and visit at least one song from every release so far, plus some new material!

This will be the third Hum related appearance at Eppyfest following the band's performance in 2013 and Matt's solo piano show last year. We're hoping to do some more acoustic shows with the trio (sadly Brad is away on tour in July) and hopefully these gigs will lead to some potential full electric band activity...  stay tuned.

Welcome to Sanguine Hum .com

Welcome to the brand new Sanguine Hum website, which is in fact technically the first ever site dedicated to the band. It replaces our old Troopers For Sound label headquarters and will be the primary source of information for all Sanguine Hum activities, as well as our related projects Antique Seeking Nuns, Nunbient and all solo projects.

In the coming weeks we'll be opening a new store for which we are currently sorting through stock of the final copies of all of our Troopers For Sound releases...including a VERY limited supply of the debut Nuns EP Mild Profundities that we recently unearthed in the archive. Stay tuned for more news on that.

Elsewhere you'll find pages dedicated to every release, with links to stream or purchase and for the first time ever: complete lyrics! There is an extensive media section that we'll be adding to on a regular basis, including a photo archive, interviews, videos and more.

Finally, if you have a burning Hum related question then head to the Q and A page and we'll do our best to publish a response. 

We hope you enjoy digging through our history and maybe discovering some new aspects of our work to keep you entertained whilst we move ever closer to finishing the big one...Now We Have Power!
