Hawkwind have revealed details about their new album which is due out later this year.

It will be titled Into the Woods and will arrive on May 5 via Cherry Red Records.

A statement about the 13-track record reads: “In many ways, it is the perfect sequel to last year’s acclaimed concept studio album and live stage show, The Machine Stops, which was inspired by E.M. Forster’s sci-fi classic, a dystopian vision of the future brought to life with characteristic Hawkwind style.”

The band have also announced a short list of tour dates, with further performances to be announced in due course.
