The Howl and the Hum unveil their upcoming UK tour, and one of the highlights will be a captivating performance at Coda, Colchester on Tuesday, June 27th.
Hailing from Colchester but now based in York, lead singer Sam Griffiths returns to his hometown after an 11-year hiatus, marking a special moment for both the band and their dedicated fans. The journey began when Griffiths made the move to York and formed the group, setting the stage for their remarkable musical journey.
Describing their sound as a fusion of miserable disco with shades of post-punk influences, The Howl & The Hum have a knack for crafting Bond theme-like compositions that delve into the lingering emotions of Jimmy’s unrequited love. Their dark, hypnotic pop melodies intertwine with poignant lyrics that make you call your mum the next morning.
The band’s meteoric rise started with acclaimed performances at festivals like Neighbourhood Festival and Loopallu, as well as their debut tour of the Scottish Highlands back in 2017. Since then, they have been building momentum, embarking on their first headline tour across England in early 2018, which coincided with the release of their single ‘Portrait I’. The band has continued to captivate audiences with a series of new releases, leading up to their highly anticipated debut festival season. Fans can catch them at esteemed events like Latitude, Citadel, The Great Escape, Live at Leeds, Standon Calling, and the BBC Biggest Weekend.
With the announcement of their short five-stop run, The Howl and the Hum are set to deliver a mix of fan favourites and fresh, never-before-heard material that promises to leave attendees spellbound. The night will kick off at 8pm, with support from the talented Ben Brown.
Please note that the show is open to ages 14 and above, and under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.
