Following the success of their critically acclaimed UK Top 40 Album Chart release “FUSION” in 2016, Hawklords reset their space-rock clock with the 2017 album release entitled, “SIX” (out October 6th) and an extensive UK tour.
From the malevolent maelstrom that is ‘Mind Crime’ and the intoxicating intrigue of ‘Nightside’ to the expansive desolation of ‘Los Cavatina’, this album breaks the mould with a stark and disturbing, yet, sometimes beautiful, body of work, that reaches into spaces where many may fear to tread.
Described by the band as “A study in dystopia and the dark spaces of the mind”, it features key former Hawkwind members Harvey Bainbridge and Jerry Richards, with Dave Pearce (from British psyche-rock band The Bevis Frond) alongside newest band member, Tom Ashurst.
The band’s amazing lightshow will once again be provided by veteran lighting designer Dave ‘Lighthouse’ Johnson, who is creating a brand new show to melt your minds and rock your retinas!
The Hawklords promise an “out of this world” space-rock extravaganza at every venue.
Jerry Richards: “This is an album about people and places. Some who find themselves in a world of pain and then sometimes in a world of beauty. This record is quite dark in places, yet it reaches for the light, elsewhere. Hawk fans will love it: a familiar sound exploring the uncharted territory of the mind. Mind-blowing? Maybe…”
Harvey Bainbridge: “A step into the nightside, a step into the unknown, a step off the edge of reality, into an alien home”
