about

Nine months after REFUGEEUM, the internationally acclaimed fourth album by BLACK SPACE RIDERS, comes a reprise, a continuation, a progression, the end of a chapter: the “BEYOND REFUGEEUM” EP.

The band had deliberately kept back four songs, all original recordings, from the REFUGEEUM sessions in order to release them separately from the album.
But watch out! As the cover artwork already suggests ... this EP 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”. Much has happened in Europe and in the world since these songs were written at the end of 2014 and recorded in early 2015 ... but they seem to be even more contemporary and necessary than ever.

“WILLKOMMEN” is the band’s first instrumental piece, a melodic, psychedelic jam that builds in intensity from quiet to very, very loud.

“FREEDOM AT FIRST SIGHT” is a crisp, catchy alternative hit that flirts with New Wave melodies and classic metal riffing.

“DRONELAND” evolves from a 70s Sequencer Ambient to a furious rhythm monster.

“STARGLUE SNIFFER” is funky and dares to have beats and a “Prince-falsetto”, before driving you on to the dance floor.

The EP is rounded off with two bonus tracks: VRTX RMX (a remix of “Vortex Sun”) is atmospheric electric drone, and GRAVITY is the electro club remix of the band’s 2014 hit “Give Gravitation to the People” ... that may and certainly will destroy or inspire one or other traditional rocker.

Establishing a position, taking a step in development, coming to an interim conclusion? Whatever! A statement by an ever-evolving band: musically interesting, lyrically relevant and aurally captivating: the “BEYOND REFUGEEUM” EP.

Track Name: WILLKOMMEN
Instrumental
Track Name: FREEDOM AT FIRST SIGHT
Freedom at first sight

Welcome to a new world
Welcome to your home
Please feel free and happy
But just a little while

Welcome to your new rules
Welcome to our world
Please conform a little
Give up your former life

Where do we go from here now?
Where have we been before?

Freedom at first sight
Freedom without rights
Track Name: DRONELAND
Droneland

Woe woe woe
High high high
Swarms of metal hornets
Falling from the sky

Low low low
Better duck and hide
Sent by "friends" to attack our "foe"
But they kill our tribe

Hear them coming in the evening light (run inside)
Now they're coming ´til the morning light (run inside)

Woe woe woe Down down down
Bringers of extinction, Please recall the drones
Run run run Die die die !
Hide from friendly fire, Killed by allied drones

Hear them coming in the evening light (run inside)
Now they're coming ´til the morning light (run inside
Hear them coming, hear them swarming out
when they're swarming, when they hunt you down
Track Name: STARGLUE SNIFFER
Starglue Sniffer

Wanna feel me
Need to feel me
leave the barracks and run til I'm out of breath
Wanna get home (now!)
At my new home (now!)
Need a home from home to overcome this loss of belonging

Feels like waking
Feels like waking up
Stranger in a strange land stranded on this unfamiliar planet
Now! got to feel it! Now! Need to feel it! Go!
Rise my face and reach out for the moving stars
Deep is my longing. Deep is anxiety. Deep is my breath.
Stardust filling everything
....
Breathe - taking me higher
Gone - higher and higher
