||HAWKWIND TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM IN MAY - LISTEN TO SAMPLES HERE
3rd February 2017
Cherry Red Records will release the new album by the legendary Hawkwind, 'Into The Woods' on 5th May 2017, the sequel to last year's acclaimed concept studio album and live stage show, 'The Machine Stops', which was inspired by EM Forster's Sci-fi classic, a dystopian vision of the future brought to life with characteristic Hawkwind style.
You can listen to three special 'Into The Woods' teasers at the bottom of this page.
Warm-up dates for Hawkwind in mid-March are dubbed 'A Glimpse Into Greenness', which gives some indication of the conceptual and lyrical themes behind the band's new album. To promote 'Into The Woods', Dave Brock and co will be touring through May, beginning on 10th. The tour culminates in what is set to be a memorable show at London's prestigious venue The Roundhouse on 26th May.
It will be forty-five years since Hawkwind played at the venue's historic 'Greasy Truckers Party' at The Roundhouse and first recorded 'Silver Machine'.
