Hum are reissuing their first four albums on vinyl: 1993’s Electra 2000, 1995’s You’d Prefer an Astronaut, 1998’s Downward Is Heavenward, and 2020’s Inlet. They’re set for release on December 8 via the band’s Earth Analog Records and Polyvinyl.
The band oversaw “every step of the re-mastering, lacquer cutting, and manufacturing stages while working with original designer Andy Mueller/OhioGirl in updating the artwork,” according to a press release. “On a personal note, we remain grateful and humbled by the ongoing interest in our music from fans old and new,” they commented. “Sincerest thanks for the decades of support and kindness.”
The press release also states that Hum currently “do not have plans for new music or live performances/touring.” The band’s longtime drummer Bryan St. Pere passed away in 2021.
