The Hawkins are back! Shortly after the release of their second studio album »Silence Is A Bomb« (2020, The Sign), the four-headed rock-hawk from Arboga returns to drop yet another projectile on your eardrums. This time, the band will release a live-recorded EP containing some of their favorite cuts from »Silence Is A Bomb«. The new EP, entitled »Live In The Woods«, will be released on 12″ vinyl and digital format January 29, 2021.

»Live In The Woods« was partly recorded in the deep Swedish forests, partly recorded in an abandoned barn, and partly recorded at Brasstacks Brewing, who brewed The Hawkins latest craft beer, Olsson Lager. All together, the digital EP holds 7 cuts, with one bonus track exclusively available on the vinyl. The tracks shreds a new light on The Hawkins’ latest material, capturing the explosive live sound that the band has developed from years of touring and playing shows. All of the tracks are beautifully mixed and mastered by the band themselves.

Guitarist and lead vocalist Johannes Carlsson says, “It was so much fun to record these sessions. Not just to hear in detail how we actually sound live, but also to explore the different settings; the sound of Mikael’s amp echoing through a forest, the light piercing through the slits in the barn, the smell of resin and bark and the coziness of playing a brewery.”
