Todd Rundgren 'STATE'
Prolific musical experimenter, premier league pop craftsman, tireless producer, runt, wizard and true star Todd Rundgren will release his new studio album 'STATE' on the Esoteric Antenna label via Cherry Red on Monday 8th April. 'STATE' is Rundgren's 24th solo studio album (and that's not including the 2 albums he recorded with his first band The Nazz, and the 9 albums he recorded with his band Utopia!).

Todd's latest musical vision is a fusion of rock, soul, r'n'b and electronica that is at once danceable, groundbreaking, spiritual, challenging and infectious.

Order STATE now from the Cherry Red Store as a Standard Edition and a Limited 2CD Edition.

To coincide with the release of 'STATE', Todd will set out on a world tour. Visit our Tour page to learn more.

Hawkwind Warrior On The Edge Of Time
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. 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".

Full details of the editions of 'Warrior' will be announced in the coming weeks. Cherry Red managing director, Adam Velasco adds, "The album 'Warrior On The Edge Of Time' has been unavailable officially on CD for many years and it is our intention to make the forthcoming releases definitive editions in terms of audio remastering (from the original master tapes), content and packaging".

Hawkwind will be touring in April 2013 performing 'Warrior On The Edge Of Time', with further dates planned later in the year. See our Tour page for dates...
