Alien ravers HENGE are launching their new single, DEMILITARISE, with a tour and video that pays tribute to one of their favourite Earthlings – Professor Stephen Hawking.

Before he died one year ago, Professor Hawking, the visionary physicist and cosmologist, said he believed that human aggression could bring civilisation to an end and that space travel was needed for the species to survive. To mark the anniversary of his death on 14 March, HENGE will release their crowd favourite DEMILITARISE, which urges the human race to follow Professor Hawking’s advice and colonise space.

 

The release is supported by a full HENGE tour of the UK and Ireland and the band have also been confirmed to appear at numerous summer festivals including Bearded Theory, Shindig, Balter Festival, Bluedot and Camp Bestival, and were the first band to be announced for this year’s Glastonbury Festival. Their live show is becoming more legendary with each performance and they were announced as Live Act of The Year at the 2018 Independent Festival Awards. Full headline dates as follows:

HENGE are a band of extra-terrestrials that bring with them the sacred sounds of Cosmic Dross – a musical form known in other parts of the universe that has, until now, never been heard on Planet Earth. There are no human words to adequately describe the Cosmic Dross experience.

 

HENGE have come to Earth in the name of rave to spread their message of love and harmony. Since their landing, they have been so well received by the human species that they won Best Live Act at the 2018 Independent Festival Awards. Their debut album – on this planet at least – ATTENTION EARTH! was released at the end of last year.

I believe that the long-term future of the human race must be space and that it represents an important life insurance for our future survival, as it could prevent the disappearance of humanity by colonising other planets.”

[STEPHEN HAWKING speaking at the LONDON SCIENCE MUSEUM]
