space elevator

Space Elevator, recently signed to SPV/Steamhammer, will release their second album, 'Space Elevator II', on 25th May 2018.

'Space Elevator II' sees the band back with a toughened up and more direct sound, without abandoning their penchant for ambitious arrangements when required.

The album features the single 'We Can Fly' – ARO mix, the video for which was shot atop the largest privately owned satellite dish in the world, which is owned by Thoth Technology, Canada, designers of the world’s first 20km high space elevator and collaborators with the band on their space elevator project. The single and the video will be released May 11th 2018.
