While in Latvia for a short yet successful mini tour, the Swedish fourpiece took the opportunity to visit our headquarters and ink the deal: We couldn’t be prouder. The band’s upcoming year is
looking brighter than ever, with plenty of shows and projects in the pipeline.
The Hawkins is an energetic, highly-entertaining rock n’ roll piece. Their music is a perfect combination of blues-based rock groove (think Deep Purple) with the bullshit-free attitude of punk rock that most likely would have made Lemmy shed a little tear of joy.
Starting in March 2013, the band’s achievements quickly started piling up – including a tour of Russia, performing at world-famous festivals such Sweden Rock Festival, Peace & Love and Metallsvenskan, as well as signing a record deal with Swedish-based label GAIN/Sony Music.
The band has recently released their debut album, Ain’t Rock n Roll expected to be playing in and around Europe throughout 2018, starting with their upcoming tour with Corroded, as seen below.
