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 will be supported by a video in honour of Professor Hawking and a tour of the UK and Ireland. Full dates as follows:
HENGE is 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]
