• THE NEW STUDIO ALBUM FROM THE LEGENDARY HAWKWIND
• FULL UK TOUR IN APRIL 2016
Cherry Red Records are pleased to announce the release of the excellent new album by the legendary Hawkwind, The Machine Stops. A concept studio album and a live stage show, The Machine Stops is based on E.M. Forster’s Sci-fi classic. His dystopian vision of the future is brought to life with characteristic Hawkwind style.
An atmospheric, musical interpretation beginning in tunnels deep beneath the earth, where every need is controlled and catered for by the machine. The struggle to escape and find a way to reach the outer surface is a utopian dream, which could prove to be the most deadly dream of all. Forster’s visionary masterpiece provides a chilling warning of the dangers of isolation, reliance on computer technology and the effects upon society. The Machine Stops is another fine album from Hawkwind. This limited vinyl gatefold sleeve edition includes a 180 gram vinyl LP and a 180 gram 12-inch EP.
