Hypocrisy dropped their new record, Worship, November 26. That evening, the band presented their fans with a unique listening session that featured a video of their brand new vinyl being sent into the stratosphere. 

The journey was completed on a bespoke launch vehicle that carried and supported the record through the atmosphere. The craft was 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 the onboard parachute slowed the craft to a gentle walking pace by the time it touched down.
