HAWKLORDS: THE FUSION TOUR 2016
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.
The band’s critically acclaimed 2015 album release, ‘R:Evolution‘ reached number 15 on the Official UK Top 30 Progressive Rock Chart and was in the top 75 for over 2 months.
A “Full-blown sonic slab of classic British space-rock”, it has been nominated for best rock album of 2015 by One World Music Awards.
‘Fusion’, the new album for 2016, is described by the band as, “Exploring the themes of: Sex, Death, Art, Identity and Time”.
‘Fusion’ is The Hawklords’ fifth consecutive studio album.
Hawklords embark on a major tour of the UK throughout October and early November 2016 to coincide with the album’s release.
Each show features a jaw-dropping digital projected lightshow, specially created by lighting designer and tour circuit veteran, Dave ‘Lighthouse’ Johnson.
