Following the excitement and critical acclaim surrounding Richard Hawley’s seventh studio album, ‘Standing At The Sky’s Edge’, the album charted at number 3, his highest ever entry.
‘Standing At The Sky’s Edge’ has received unanimous praise across the board, as once again, Hawley redefines the musical landscape, taking the bold step to challenge himself and his audience. It’s a euphoric album, a sonic assault on the senses, channelling elements of psychedelia, space rock and ragas with heavy riffs and raw, visceral guitar solos as well as more familiar, tender moments.
Following the recent announcement of his first ever show at Brixton Academy on October 3rd, Hawley is pleased to announce the full details of his UK autumn tour:
