HENGE have been delighting audiences in the UK and Europe since they landed on Earth eight years ago. Their music – known as “Cosmic Dross” – escapes definition, but occupies a space between rave and prog rock that nobody knew existed – going ‘where no band has gone before’. Ultimately, HENGE spread a message of hope that leaves audiences feeling amused and uplifted in equal measures.

Their unique debut album “Attention Earth!” was released in 2018, followed by 2020’s “ExoKosm”, which earned media support from the likes of BBC6 Music, PROG Magazine, Louder Than War and Buzz Magazine.
With a reputation for scintillating live performances, HENGE have won over audiences across the globe at festivals such as Glastonbury, Boomtown, Bluedot, Shambala, Beatherder, Fusion (DE), Down The Rabbit Hole (NL), Jungle Love (AU) and more – receiving the award for ‘Best Live Act’ at the Independent Festival Awards in the process.

Last month, HENGE returned with the new single “Get A Wriggle On”; a joyous, yo-yoing electro/prog banger that calls for action on Earth’s climate crisis. In a collaborative first, it sees the band teaming up with the UK environmental charity Music Declares Emergency, with proceeds from all purchases of the song going towards its work.

Speaking about the single, Zpor, front-being of HENGE, says:

“Humans, as you may be aware, you have a climate emergency on your home planet. This is a situation that requires URGENT ACTION! We have developed a deep love for the human race, and wish to see you thrive…” 

Get A Wriggle On” is the first single from HENGE’s upcoming album “Alpha Test 4” – which will build bridges and blow minds when it is released on 26 May 2023 on Cosmic Dross Records.
