Brooklyn duo The Hundred in the Hands, are set to release their new album, Red Night, on June 12 via Warp. They're also releasing a 12" single for album track, "Keep It Low," which you can stream below. That 12" comes with remixes by Andy Stott, Optimo, and Patten. On Andy Stott's remix, he takes the already dark song and strips it down to focus more on the low end, which darkens the tone even more. The video for that remix is below.
The Hundred in the Hands are kicking off an international tour in Moscow on Friday (5/18), but before they head out they'll play a local show TONIGHT (5/15) at Glasslands with Erika Spring (of Au Revoir Simone), Vorhees, and Jacques Renault. Tickets are available and we're also giving away a pair. Details on how to win are below.
On their tour, they'll return to NYC for a show at Mercury Lounge on June 20. Tickets for this show are not on sale yet but check ticketmaster for updates.
