Resident Alien: 20 Years

Spacehog Resident Alien Bearsville NY

20 years ago this weekend we released our biggest record to date: Resident Alien.

The album was recorded in a barn in Bearsville, NY in the summer of ’95. It was a magical time, full of hope, creativity and fun. Freshly signed to Sire Records and under the stewardship of super manager David Sonenberg, we banged it out in four weeks, mixing at RPM in New York City.

There was a distinct sense of possibility, particularly around “In The Meantime”, the song that propelled the album to platinum status. We are still so grateful to our fans and friends generosity over the years, in keeping the record alive. Very proud to have made a dent in rock history.

Thanks for All Your Support on Summerland 2014

It was amazing to see so many faces, old and new on this year’s Summerland Tour.

Our participation in the package got us practically everywhere in the US and we had an absolute blast. Turning up to an outdoor amphitheater one day, a rock club the next and a casino the next was a real trip. We want to thank all of you who forked out your hard earned cash to buy a ticket, a t-shirt or a cd.

With all the driving, we got to see some wonderful parts of the country, some for the first time. Highlights included: A monsoon in St Pete (sorry we only got to play 2 1/2 songs!) The Bike Rally in Sturgis, SD, and, what about that crowd in Bonner Springs, KS?!

We did what we could to try to come out to merchandise and say hi to those who wanted to connect, so apologies to anyone we might have missed.

We also wanna go on record and thank the other bands and their crews for being so professional and accommodating. Without you all it simply would not be possible.

Please stay tuned for more updates on shows and releases.
God Bless you.

Spacehog Summerland Tour 2014

En Route to Summerland!

We are hopeful and excited as we approach the final preparations for our Summerland tour with Everclear, Soul Asylum and Eve 6. The package gives us a chance to blast into markets we otherwise wouldn’t be able to get to and share the stage with friends playing some great music. In doing so, we had to part ways with our touring guitarist of two or more years, Mr Timo Ellis: Timo has decided to commit the rest of the year to his band the Netherlands. We wish him all the very best and invite you to check him out and show some love.

As for his replacement, well, they were some big boots to fill, but I think Derrek Hawkins might just have filled ‘em. An awesome New York guitarist and top pal, formerly of Stabbing Westward and the Ace Frehley Band. We are really looking forward to showing him off.

Let us know which shows you’re attending by hashtagging #Spacehog + the #City you’re seeing us in.

Look forward to seeing you out there!
