Galactic is proud to announce the February 2013 “Freeze Out Tour” which will embark from Mardi Gras in New Orleans before heading out west. The band will be joined by alternative hip-hop group LATYRX featuring Lyrics Born & Lateef the Truthspeaker. The groups have a history of collaborating together, most notably on Galactic’s album “From the Corner to the Block”. LATYRX will open eleven of the sixteen shows on the tour and can be expected to join Galactic for portions of their set along with guest vocalist Corey Glover (of Living Colour). After a stop in St. Louis at The Pageant the tour will head west with 2-night-stands in Denver and San Francisco. Galactic continues to tour on the strength of their modern Mardi Gras themed album Carnivale Electricos.
The band recently launched their first ever fan remix contest for the song Ha Di Ka (feat. Chief Juan Pardo & The Golden Comanche), in partnership with the popular remix platform Indaba Music. After over 1,000 entries, the top three remixes will be featured as a exclusive remix EP free download via Relix.com on Jan 7th.
