Hawkwind have announced the forthcoming release of a brand-new studio album– All Aboard The Skylark, to be released on Cherry Red Records.
The album is the band’s 32nd studio album and a storming return to their space rock roots.
2019 marks the beginning of the legendary Hawkwind’s 50th Anniversary year, and All Aboard The Skylark picks up effortlessly from their last two, Top 40 charting, conceptual albums The Machine Stops (2016) and Into The Woods (2017).
Musically the solid quartet of Dave Brock (guitar, vocals, keyboards), Richard Chadwick (drums), Niall Hone (bass, keyboards) and Magnus Martin (guitar, vocals) have created a tight, psychedelic groove that runs through the spine of the album, but embraces each musician’s individual talents along the way.
All Aboard The Skylark will be released as a stand alone vinyl edition – limited to 1000 copies worldwide - and as a 2CD set accompanied by Acoustic Daze, which features studio recordings of acoustic versions of some classic Hawkwind tracks, which were recorded following a live tour, when the band opened their own shows with an acoustic set.
