A Low Hum Announce 'A Movement' Books + Tour

Thursday 5th February, 2015 12:25PM

Not one to rest on his laurels Blink, the man behind A Low Hum, has made the epic announcement of A Movement, which is the name he has given to his work circa 2000-2015. Next month, Blink is releasing some of this work as a series of 10 photographic art books, containing 1000 photos of 300 bands shot over 15 years. He says each book is devoted to a particular style or theme and will be released on 16th March "in a typically absurd A Low Hum style release tour with multiple events around the country". 

The Movement Tour will be a 25 event (yes, 25 separate events) happening throughout March in a variety of locations across Wellington, Masterton, Auckland, Palmerston North, Dunedin and Christchurch. To our delight, the events include several gigs from influential Auckland act Xanadu, who will be playing their first live shows in more than 12 years, which double as release shows for the overdue unveiling of their debut album vinyl release (have a wee taste here). Other highlights include performances from Sarah Mary Chadwick (of Wellington group Batrider), Shocking Pinks and Liam Finn. There will also be screenings of a film created from footage Blink has shot at various DIY tours over the years.
