NEWS: BLACK SPACE RIDERS Release Official Video for "Movements"
German Riffonauts BLACK SPACE RIDERS have released the official video for "Movements," a track from forthcoming album Amoretum Vol. 1. Get in on the action below. Amoretum Vol. 1 will be released on vinyl, CD, and digital formats on January 26. The single can be purchased and the album pre-ordered on all digital platforms, including Bandcamp, as well as at the band shop below. The internationally acclaimed predecessor Refugeeum brought BLACK SPACE RIDERS renown with its mixture of thoughtful, sensitive themes and hard, atmospheric rock. Two years have passed since then, two years in which the world has not necessarily become a better place in the eyes of most people. War, terror, displacement, destruction, rejection and nationalism dominate the headlines. Or, as a wise little green fellow once said: "Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering." "All you need is love", countered the BEATLES in 1967. The response of BLACK SPACE RIDERS in 2018 is Amoretum, a made-up word comprising "amor" and "arboretum" to symbolize a protective garden and a germ seed of love. And so the new song cycle of BLACK SPACE RIDERS is all about the conflict between fear-hate-rejection-darkness on the one hand, and love-empathy-care-light on the other. For, how else should we overcome hate, if not with love? blackspaceriders.com/shop blackspaceriders.com Twitter.com/BlackSpaceRider facebook.com/BlackSpaceRiders
