American Tour Postponed
As many of you will now be aware Dave was taken ill a couple of weeks ago. Doctors have confirmed that his condition is stress related, aggravated by the trademark dispute in the United States which could result in years of litigation.
After enduring a series of tests, Dave has been advised that it could be dangerous to his health to embark on a gruelling 14,000 mile tour at this time. After much discussion about possible ways forward, the members of the band have reluctantly decided that it is necessary to reschedule the dates to March 2014, rather than put Dave's health at unnecessary risk. (New dates for each venue will be announced next week)
Whilst we understand this will come as a big disappointment to those of you who have booked tickets, as it does to ourselves, we are equally sure that you will understand health concerns must take priority.

Pre-Order Hawkwind 'Warrior On The Edge Of Time"
Atomhenge, the Cherry Red Records label managed by Esoteric Recordings, the home of the entire Hawkwind catalogue released between 1975 and 1997, are very pleased to announce that the classic Hawkwind album 'Warrior On The Edge Of Time' will be released in May 2013 as a newly remastered edition from the original stereo master tapes.
Atomhenge label manager Mark Powell says "Contrary to popular myth, the master tapes of this classic album were never lost. They remained in the United Artists vaults. The Atomhenge reissue will be the first ever CD edition to be taken from the original first generation master tapes. All previous editions have been taken from vinyl transfers or inferior copy master tapes".
As well as a single disc remastered edition, there will be two other expanded editions of the album (Super Deluxe Boxset Edition / 3 Disc Expanded Edition). Mark Powell adds, "I'm extremely pleased to say that Steven Wilson has mixed the album into a stunning 5.1 Surround Sound mix from the original multi-track master tapes and has also undertaken a new stereo mix of the album which has an amazing depth and clarity whilst remaining faithful to the original release. 'Warrior' is one of THE classic albums of the 1970s and is a land-mark album in Hawkwind's history. The forthcoming reissues will do justice this magnificent record".
