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

Before he died a 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. Hairy muff, the dude’s a genius so we’ll go with that. 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. The band have also been confirmed to appear at numerous summer festivals including Bearded Theory, Shindig, Balter Festival, Bluedot and Camp Bestival. If that weren’t enough for ya, they were also 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.
