Hookworms share new video for "Radio Tokyo", announce US/UK tour dates

02 December 2014, 17:56 | Written by Laurence Day

Leeds' premiere noisemakers Hookworms have unveiled their new video for "Radio Tokyo" and are sharing details of shows across the US and UK.

"Radio Tokyo" is taken from recent LP The Hum, which we gave 9/10 in our review, and is described by the band in their Track-by-Track guide:

"This song was originally released on 7” for the Too Pure singles club last May. We actually wrote and recorded it before Pearl Mystic had even been released, so this is easily the oldest track on The Hum. We really enjoyed playing it live, and quickly worked out that it's more fun playing something like this over the slower jams, so it subsequently became a bit of a springboard for writing the rest of the LP. Saying that, we were already quite far along with the album before we decided to re-record Radio Tokyo, but it was obvious that it fit in really well with the aesthetic of what we’d worked on so far."
