UK/Basque-based Crystal Fighters return to North America this fall for a string of headline and support dates with Portugal. The Man kicking off on Sept. 27 at Terminal 5 in New York City in celebration of their recent sophomore Cave Rave album release.  The tour announcement is on the heels of the band’s headline tour, which saw the band playing sold out shows on nearly every stop in the 13-city North American run.

 

The captivating, high-energy show has drawn critical acclaim:

“Fans of Crystal Fighters can attest to two undeniable truths about them: one, that the band’s sound cannot be compartmentalized in any modern day label, and two, that very few shows can ever live up to the energy and drive that fuels a Crystal Fighters show.”CMJ

“…take a unique approach to dance music, fusing African beats with techno synthesizers and folksy melodies. They use traditional Basque instruments, such as the txalaparta (think of, very broadly, a giant wooden xylophone) and the txistu (which is similar to a recorder), and create a kind of culture shock on the dance floor,”New Yorker

“… juxtapose the eerie flavour of traditional Basque folk music with churning basslines and catchy energetic vocals, resulting in a jubilant and uplifting sound unlike any other. They offer raved-up, percussive folktronica, veering from Fischerspooner-style euphoria to Animal Collective-toned delicacy, underpinned by a progressive contemporary London bass sound.”Brooklyn Vegan
