Bassist Kai Sun says, “Every human being on the planet can be placed into two categories: those who struggle to find meaning and those who find ‘White Hot Reflection.’” With subliminal messages, headbangers, and absolute fury, there’s something for every heavy metal fan on this album."

Space Vacation takes inspiration from heavy metal icons like Motorhead, Judas Priest, Ozzy, and early Def Leppard, yet they are still able to blend in their own unique take on the genre and earn the heavy metal title in their own right. Lead vocalist Scott Shapiro notes, “’White Hot Reflection’ is the culmination of 2.5 years of pain, loss, reinvention and good old-fashioned heavy metal! We’ve all been through hell over the last year and a half, so shotgun a brew, spark a joint and let us take you for a ride!”

Space Vacation’s 5th studio album “White Hot Reflection” was released on April 29, 2022 on Spotify, iTunes, YouTube and will also be available as a double LP available only through The heavy metal band continues to shred on new music and create outright thrashers, so you can expect to hear more from them soon.
