HUM release Inlet, the band’s first new album since 1998

HUM have announced the release of their new highly-anticipated record, Inlet. You can stream the album right now on their Bandcamp page.

Updates about the new record have been few and far between, which comes as no surprise, but it was September 2018 when they announced the reissue of Downward is Heavenward while providing an update about the record’s progress. Inlet is the band’s first album since Downward was released in 1998. You’d Prefer An Astronuat turned 25 this year.

Here’s a statement from the band:

Hum is happy to announce the release of our new album, Inlet. Vinyl (180g double LP), CD, and shirt bundles are available for immediate pre-order via, with all pre-orders including a free digital download.

The record is also available for consumption at and will ripple out to all digital platforms within the week.

Vinyl manufacturing has been delayed a bit due to Covid. We are hoping we can ship late Summer. We’ll keep you posted. The band is extremely thankful for the kindness we have received over the years, and we hope everybody is healthy and well!
