The Mighty HAWKLORDS return to Club 85 with their brand new album "BRAVE NEW WORLD" with support from the Glorious DEVIANT AMPS!


British space-rock band

Originally formed by Robert Calvert and Dave Brock (of Hawkwind) from the ashes of The Sonic Assassins in 1978, The Hawklords re-emerged in 2009 with a memorial concert in London for legendary British artist, the late Barney Bubbles, graphic designer for many of Hawkwind’s early 1970s albums. Since 2009 Hawklords have consistently toured Europe and the UK, released two official live concert performances on DVD and have produced six consecutive albums of original music, with album number seven due to be released, worldwide, in October 2018.

The band’s critically acclaimed 2017 album release, ‘SIX’, entered The Official UK Top 40 Rock and Metal Chart at number 35. A “Full-blown sonic slab of classic British space-rock”, it was nominated for best rock album of 2017 by One World Music Radio Awards.

‘Hawklords VII: Brave New World’, the new album for 2018, is part two of a trilogy of new releases that are concerned with War, Peace, Love.

Jerry Richards (guitar and vocals): “You can’t have one of these themes without the others; the War cannot be won without the Peace that follows, and Love cannot flourish without Peace. All are contingent upon the other and all find their own expression as a symptom of the rest. These are themes which The Hawklords are keen to explore as humanity, once again, faces another ‘Brave New World’ era.”

Hawklords will embark upon a UK tour throughout October and November 2018 in support of this new studio album. Each live show features a jaw-dropping digital projected lightshow, specially created by lighting designer and tour circuit veteran, Dave ‘Lighthouse’ Johnson.

As one of the founding members of the legendary Hawkwind, Nik Turner needs no introduction. Eccentric, innovative, and enigmatic, Nik is full of surprises and we are beyond psyched to see what he brings to the stage this time!
