HAWKWIND 'ALL ABOARD THE SKYLARK' 2 CD Set
Cherry Red are delighted to announce the brand-new studio album by the legendary Hawkwind - All Aboard The Skylark.
All Aboard The Skylark is the band's 32nd studio album and a storming return to their space rock roots.
2019 marks the beginning of the band's 50th Anniversary year and All Aboard The Skylark picks up effortlessly from their conceptual Top 40 charting 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.
BONUS DISC TWO: ACOUSTIC DAZE
Following a live tour, when Hawkwind opened their own shows with an acoustic set, the band went into the studio and recorded Acoustic Daze, acoustic versions of some classic Hawkwind tracks. Including Psy Power, Down Through The Night and We Took The Wrong Step Years Ago, this shows another fascinating side to the band.
The 50th Anniversary celebrations this year has seen Hawkwind headline the acoustic stage at Glastonbury and headline the metal festival Graspop in Belgium, alongside a host of other UK and European festivals. There will be a nationwide tour in November to celebrate this release.
