"Worship" launched into space
First Metal in the space? Hypocrisy launched their new album “Worship” into space!
On November 26th, Hypocrisy celebrated the release of the new album WORSHIP by launching a vinyl version into the stratosphere! The journey was completed on a bespoke launch vehicle lifted by a large hydrogen-filled balloon reaching a maximum altitude of over 120,000 feet/36.57 km above the Earth. It fell back down to Earth reaching speeds over 200mph until it re-entered the troposphere (where we all live) where the onboard parachute slowed the craft to a gentle walking pace by the time it touched down.
The video of this journey combined with the tracks from the album into an immersive experience, that has been shared throughout the listening session on the premiere day. You may watch it now.
