Spacehog, the English rock band comprised of brothers Royston Langdon (Vocals and Bass Guitar) and Anthony Langdon (Guitar and Vocals), Jonny Cragg, (Drums) and Richard Steel (Lead Guitar) will be reuniting to play a select number of tour dates which can be seen below. The band, heavily influenced by David Bowie, Queen, and T.Rex, is known for their legendary concerts in the East Village and creating their own genre of sound by colliding their influences with a wall of distorted guitars daring vocals.
The band’s debut album, Resident Alien, went gold on the Billboard charts, selling a million copies and spawned the hit single and video “In the Meantime” as well as the single “Cruel To Be Kind”.
It’s been 9 years since Spacehog have come together. The group has begun working on their yet to be titled fourth album with Bryce Goggin (Ramones, Phish). The evolved sound can only be described as epic and revolutionary for the band.
Fans can now listen to their first record track since 2001 entitled “Sunset Blvd.” For the latest news visit www.Spacehog.com!

Spacehog’s Royston Langdon in the running for Velvet Revolver frontman
While Scott Weiland treks cross-country on the Stone Temple Pilots reunion tour, his other former band, Velvet Revolver, is hard at work finding a new singer. EW.com has learned that Royston Langdon —frontman for Spacehog (who had a 1995 hit with “In the Meantime” ) and estranged husband of Liv Tyler — is in the running for the gig after several successful jam sessions in Los Angeles. “They all got along great,” says an insider. “It was really a refreshing change for the band.” Velvet Revolver’s management couldn’t confirm that an offer had been made, and would only say that they’re still auditioning prospective singers. But an RCA source says that Langdon is “definitely in the mix.”
