 Hawkwind have announced a brand-new studio album and tour for the autumn.

 Somnia follows their critically acclaimed 2020 Hawkwind Light Orchestra album Carnivorous and live album 50th Anniversary Live.  Back with a new studio album and live shows in 2021, the band’s 34th album is a superb addition to the space rock genre they created.  The concept of Somnia makes many allusions to sleep; through Roman mythology and the god of sleep Somnus, the lyrics tell the tale of sleepless paranoia, strange encounters, fever dreams and meditation through thirteen blistering tracks across the deluxe CD and 180gram vinyl (10 tracks).  The CD and vinyl releases have been tailored to provide singular sonic experiences.  Somnia will be released to coincide with the return of the band’s popular Hawkfest festival, which takes place on the 27th – 29th August in East Devon, and the anniversary of Hawkwind's first ever live gig.  The band will play their rearranged date at the London Palladium on Thursday 28th October preceded by September dates across the UK, with support to be announced.
