HAWKLORDS


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.  

‘HawklordsVII:  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.
