Departure and Farewell Update Flash #1
Hem's new album really does exist! I was very fortunate to recently hear a sneak preview of Departure and Farewell. I cannot wait for everybody to hear this lovely album full of surprises, harmonies, and horns. Seriously, it was a joy (balanced, of course, with Hem's traditional sorrow). More information about the new music will be here all week. For now, I am still collecting my thoughts!
September 28 Show
Hem played a show on September 28, 2012 in Haines Falls, NY. This was Hem's first show in nearly 5 years. It was a private show at the IVOH Annual World Summit for Images & Voices of Hope. Click here for the setlist. It's an incomplete setlist, but it does include three new, never-before-played songs, so you can see what you might be hearing soon (no, there are not new shows scheduled yet).
New Promo Photo
Click on the little image to the left to see a new promotional photo of the band that accompanies an old band bio at the IVOH website. I think this is from a photo shoot earlier this year that will see more play as Hem's new music starts being released. Soon, soon!

New Album Progress
Today Hem shared a new picture at Facebook with the caption "Tomas, Joe and Jason tracking the *very last* track for the upcoming LP. We're done!! It's a wrap. Off to the mixing studio. And then off to you all. Your patience has been astounding, and appreciated :)" Go visit if you haven't already and tell Hem how much you love them and hope for new music soon(ish).
