An out-of-this-world 'space-rave' band will be making contact with Cornwall next month.

Extra-terrestrial act HENGE will beam their space-rave message of hope to audiences at more than 40 live spaces over the next three months.

To mark the beginning of the tour, the intergalactic joy mongers have released a new single and video for “Goldilocks”.

A space-rave oddity in search of a cosmic sweet-spot, it’s a love song dedicated to the so-called Goldilocks Zone - the habitable region around a star where the temperature is just right for life to evolve.

The track also comes with an out-of-this world remix from exciting Manchester-based producer Shunya (listen here), who will also support HENGE on the 'ExoKosm' tour.

Featuring synth lines dripping with acid and angular vocoder-led melodies that ascend to glorious crescendo, “Goldilocks” is one of the many highlights to be discovered on HENGE’s second album: ExoKosm.

Picking up where their debut ‘Attention Earth!’ left off, ExoKosm is once again an exploration into the sacred alien art form known as 'Cosmic Dross'.

Although there are currently no human words that adequately describe the art form, it features thundering drums, clothes-shredding bass, whacked-out synths and singing that lays bare the joy of life.

While ‘Attention Earth!’ saw the band deliver a message for Earthlings to lay down weapons of war in favour of space exploration, ExoKosm prepares humans for the voyage into the unknown.

HENGE frontman, Zpor, explains: "With ExoKosm we offer a message of hope for humankind, a soundtrack for the joyful exploration of space.

"Turn your gaze to the stars and you will experience the thrill of discovering new worlds beyond your solar system.

"In doing so you will also learn to cherish the sacred soil of Planet Earth."

Among its seven tracks are singles "Get Outta Ma House" - a gibberish hip-hop banger - and "Exo," which features a video made entirely from HENGE fan-art submitted by their dedicated ‘ravelings.’

The drawings were swapped for an official HENGE comic as part of an innovative art exchange.

HENGE came to Earth six years ago to spread their message of peace, love and harmony through Cosmic Dross.

Hailed with 'reinventing space-rock for the 21st century', the band’s live shows blend science fiction, psychedelia and theatre.

Converting thousands of fans at performances across the UK and Europe, HENGE were also honoured with the accolade of ‘Best Live Act’ at the 2018 Independent Festival Awards.
