Club 85 proudly presents HAWKLORDS
with support from THE GREY
Hawklords announce the Generations Tour 2019 featuring very special guest and long-time friend, Nik Turner.
Key former Hawkwind members Harvey Bainbridge (synths & vocals) and Jerry Richards (guitar & vocals) alongside Dave Pearce (drums) and Tom Ashurst (bass & vocals) will be joined by legendary 'God-father of space-rock' and founder member of Hawkwind, Nik Turner for a string of dates which include two sold out shows for the 2019 HRH Prog Festival at Sheffield O2 Academy and at London's O2 Shepherds Bush Empire.
Turner was a key driving force in the creation and success of legendary British stoner band Hawkwind back in 1969, throughout the 1970s and beyond, so expect a choice selection of classic and contemporary songs, poetry, a retina-reducing psychedelic light-show and a maelstrom of mind-blowing music from these Masters of the Universe as they celebrate 50 years of British space-rock.
The band will also be performing songs from their 2018 hit album, "Brave New World" which debuted at number 12 in The Official UK Top 40 Rock & Metal Chart, alongside material from their latest studio album "Heaven's Gate". Their 8th studio release in as many years.
This is one hard working and hot rocking act at the peak of its powers: Don't miss them on this very special and unique tour.
See you 'out there'...

The Revivalmusic.co.uk review August 2017
A few weeks ago, we had a killer EP land on our desks right here at The Revival HQ from a band known as The Grey, a three-piece instrumental post metal band from the heart of Cambridge, UK. They describe themselves as a band with ‘big riffs’ with underlying grooves that set themselves apart from their peers.
Interestingly, this EP is indeed filled with big riffs across its 8 tracks. Don’t be fooled, whilst we typically don’t see 8 track EPs, this self-titled release is filled with short nuggets of meaty gold and it all begins with the opener ‘Iris’ which sets the pace and starts things as they mean to go on. Those riffs that they claim to have are indeed there and so is the groove with some Mastodon-esque sounding guitar work that opens things up nicely.
Overall, The Grey have come to the table with a debut release which is very strong with just the right balance of ambience and sheer ferociousness. Those moments that are heavy are just that. Those with a thirst for great riffs will be more than catered for and if groove is your thing you check that box too. It’s not often bands come to the table with such well-produced and expertly crafted music. It will be interesting to see where the band take it from here and it's safe to say we will be keeping a close eye as things progress.
