Britain’s Hookworms have announced a new album, Microshift, and have shared a video for its first single, “Negative Space.” Microshift is due out February 2, 2018 via Domino. Below is the “Negative Space” video, followed by the album’s tracklist.

Microshift is the band’s third album and the follow-up to 2014’s The Hum. Whereas their previous two albums were built off the band’s live sound, the new one is more of a studio affair. But the band’s studio was devastated during the River Aire floods in Leeds in the winter of 2015. Thanks to a GoFundMe campaign and help from volunteers the studio was rebuilt and the album was recorded.

Hookworms’ MJ (all the members just go by their initials) had this to say about the album in a press release: “All of our records are to an extent about mental health. Largely this is an album about loss but also about maturing, accepting your flaws and the transience of intimacy.”

Microshift Tracklist:

01 Negative Space
02 Static Resistance
03 Ullswater
04 The Soft Season
05 Opener
06 Each Time We Pass
07 Boxing Day
08 Reunion
09 Shortcomings
