Emanating from the barrier dunes of Virginia, Freedom Hawk’s heavy riffs, rolling groove, and soulful guitar melodies produce a sound that is distinctly their own. The quartet’s brand of heavy rock capitalizes on the best of the heavy ‘70s, with a head-spinning blend of 60s acid and fuzzy blues, that’s modern and based around quality songwriting rather than style-over-substance retro posturing.
Join Freedom Hawk’s continued search for the perfect riff!!

IT’S NOT NIGHT: IT’S SPACE: Psychedelic Space Rock Instrumentalists Kick Off New Year Mini-Tour Tonight
“There are certain kinds of psychic transport only attainable by lingering on a drone or a single pattern long after the modern mind has expressed its desire to move along, and that place is where
INN:IS lives but this band has become nothing short of masterful at the art of the narrative arc as well…” — The Hudson Valley Almanac Weekly

Gushed The Hudson Valley Almanac Weekly of the offering, “There are certain kinds of psychic transport only attainable by lingering on a drone or a single pattern long after the modern mind has expressed its desire to move along, and that place is where INN:IS lives but this band has become nothing short of masterful at the art of the narrative arc as well, and that’s important for an instrumental band. Jams that transfix live can just bore in the studio if a band is not taking its storytelling responsibility seriously.” “Our Birth Is But A Sleep And A Forgetting is a surprising little journey through the psychedelic cosmos of the stoner and ambience world,” wrote Apochs.net. “IT’S NOT NIGHT: IT’S SPACE does a superb job casting various settings… leaving the listener at their mercy through soothing astral voyages with or without the aid of hallucinogenic drugs of some kind. Between solid musicianship like what’s found on ‘The Beard Of Macroprosopus’ and the emotionally charged sensations felt on ‘Across The Luster Of The Desert Into The Polychrome Hills,’ it’s plain to see that this three-piece is not your everyday instrumental act.” “Beaming in from cosmic depths with six tracks…Our Birth Is But A Sleep And A Forgetting offers sonic immersion and atmospheric scope in kind with a patient, hypnotic front-to-back flow that adds rich tonality to what guitarist Kevin Halcott, bassist Tommy Guerrero, and drummer Michael Lutomski accomplished their first time out,” offered The Obelisk. “Parts may have been born of improvisations, but the finished product doesn’t feel like a collection of jams. Rather, a series of interconnected pieces correctly positioned to guide the listener through this aural expanse. Spiritualism, contemplation, philosophy, space itself – all of this seems to be in play for IT’S NOT NIGHT: IT’S SPACE.” Outlaws Of The Sun concurred, “The album sounds incredible through-out. The production is first rate as you feel emotionally connected to the music from the very start. Our Birth Is But A Sleep And A Forgetting is simply an album that will not only be considered as one of the year’s best instrumental rock albums but perhaps one of the best albums of the year.” Added More Fuzz in their year-end review, “The name of the band gives two clues about their music, first that it’s space (rock), believe them, they know. Second, its length suggests post-rock influences, and there’s definitely some post vibe in the way the songs progress smoothly towards their apex, with noisey melodies becoming gradually faster and angrier through time. You’ll probably feel a drone aura also, because this trio knows to take its time to do it right. Don’t worry, you won’t have to do a thing, just lay back in this comfy capsule drifting through the cosmos.”
Guitarist Kevin Halcott and drummer Michael Lutomski founded IT’S NOT NIGHT: IT’S SPACE early in 2010. By that Fall, Tommy Guerrero had joined on bass and their first EP arrived in October 2011. East Of The Sun & West Of The Moon featured three epic instrumental pieces that set the tone for what to expect from IT’S NOT NIGHT: IT’S SPACE. Positive response came in virtual and physical realities, and the band set about honing their craft, averaging about fifty-sixty shows a year.
Momentum carried IT’S NOT NIGHT: IT’S SPACE straight into their first LP, 2012’s Bowing Not Knowing To What, self-released with the help of successful crowdfunding raising $5,000 to press CDs and vinyl. It was this album that caught the attention of Small Stone Records. A series of roadblocks and personal setbacks fowlloing that release album set the tone for their second album, the soon-to-be issued Our Birth Is But A Sleep And A Forgetting.
In moldy warehouses, grimy basements, and the dusty backrooms of pizza shops, the psychedelic drone trio channeled new material and worked tirelessly to craft the songs that would become a definitive offering. It became a full-time task. Our Birth Is But A Sleep And A Forgetting rings both familiar and fresh. Longtime fans should have no trouble getting down with the heavy grooves and climaxes of these sonic journeys, but the band has pushed into dreamier territories as well. The long wait to share this very personal and powerful album is finally over, and IT’S NOT NIGHT: IT’S SPACEis ready to get back on the wave and ride it forward.

After being quiet for a while after last years European tour, we have now worked in a new guitarist (Brendan O’neil from the thrash band Pestilence Choir) to round us out as a 4 piece once again and have been busy writing new material. We have decided to take a pause from writing to get out on the road to do a very short tour run around the Northeast accompanied by our metal maniac mates in Colossus (Raleigh, NC). We have relatively exciting news (at least to us that is) to announce in the near future…let’s just say 2017 is looking bright.
Hope to see you there!!
