New EP soon

Nine months after REFUGEEUM - our last album (obviously loved by fans, critics and friends) - comes a reprise: the “BEYOND REFUGEEUM” EP.

The idea: We had deliberately kept back four songs, all original recordings, from the REFUGEEUM sessions in order to release them separately from the album, because - as the cover artwork already may suggest - the material is different to the songs on REFUGEEUM, unlike what you might expect from this band. But you can still tell that it comes logically and quite unmistakably from the BLACK SPACE RIDERS. The songs are exalted, sometimes overwrought, vivid, and yet accessible.

The BEYOND REFUGEEUM EP is going to be released on the 13th may 2016 via BSR / CARGO and the following national distribution partners:

Germany/Austria/Switzerland: Cargo Records

USA/Canada: MVD Entertainment

UK: PHD (plastichead distribution)

BeNeLux: Suburban records

Scandinavia: Border Music

Italy: Goodfellas

Those distributors offer as well our previous albums „REFUGEEUM“ (2015), „D:REI“ (2014) and „Light is the new Black“ (2012). All albums are also available at bandcamp and the band's webshop (shipping worldwide)
