Nik Turner's Hawkwind To Tour North America With Witch Mountain And Hedersleben This Summer/Fall 2014!

Nik Turner's Hawkwind To Tour North America With Witch Mountain And Hedersleben This Summer/Fall 2014!In the spirit of the critically acclaimed and historic 'Space Ritual' tour of 1973, Nik Turner's Hawkwind plan to blow minds on their sonic and visually stimulating journey on their 2014 North American tour with Portland's own Witch Mountain and SF bay area Krautrockers Hedersleben. Starting in August, this package tour is not to be missed by anyone, in hopes to enlighten and inspire both people who have witnessed last year's tour or any of Nik's tours prior and the first timers, bringing sonic traditions of old to the forefront of 2014. Attendees and Nik Turner's Hawkind fans will not be disappointed. Though staying true to the spirit of Space Ritual as a concept, don't be surprised to hear other classics, songs off of the 2013 release 'Space Gypsy' album and perhaps a new song or two as Nik Turner prepares to return to the studio after the tour. Nik also has a new fusion project forthcoming featuring Billy Cobham and Chris Poland (Megadeth) later this year.

"This tour is the essence of space-rock, the extra-terrestrial, inter-galactic, orgasmic embodiment of the loving and healing vibrations, and the rocking music of the spheres, flame on, one love." - Nik Turner

Witch Mountain
"Witch Mountain is thrilled to follow up its Summer tour of Europe with the release of latest album Mobile of Angels, and tour in support of the legendary Nik Turner's Hawkwind. We feel sure that our music will be 'out there' enough to reach the heads, and Nik Turner and co will sufficiently rock our fans in turn. It's a match made in Hell and we can't wait to hit the road."

Year 1 report..."It was the same time last year that Hedersleben accompanied Nik Turner on a space trek around the USA promoting their debut album 'Upgoer'. Since then the crew have not been resting on their cosmic sofa rather they've pressed on to new and exciting ventures, including completing the next Brainticket album as the legendary Joel Vandroogenbroeck's side-kicks (including many writing credits), launched their first headline tour of the west coast, preformed a showcase with special guest Captain Sensible from the Damned, (See the Hedersleben Facebook page for footage) and not least recorded their 2nd album 'Die Neuen Welten'.
'Die Neuen Welten', featuring the epic side long "Zu Den Neuen Welten", (Youtube video scheduled for mid August), celebrates the Kepler mission space telescopes discoveries of more than 2000 exoplanets. DNW also boasts the studio version of stage favorite "(On The Ground) Safe and Sound". The album is mixed by Jürgen Engler of Die Krupps.

Prog fans look out for further large sections of Hedersleben's 3rd album, slated for recording early next year, as part of this tours set. 'The Fall Of Chronopolis', based on the book of the same name by Barrington J. Bayley, is distinctly more progressive in the tradition of the great early prog concept album. See you in August or September" - Nicky Garratt
