On the heels of their third studio album Everything Is My Family which was released in October 2016 through Zirkulo/Play It Again Sam, London-based Crystal Fighters announce a U.S. tour that kicks off March 25th and hits cities such as New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, DC, and more.
Crystal Fighters have also shared the official “Lay Low” video, directed by Wayne McCauslin. The band comments:
“Lay Low was inspired by the passing of our brother and drummer, Andrea Marongiu, and the main singalong came from an impromptu backstage chant, at one of our final shows together. Andrea brought Crystal Fighters alive when he joined the family with his phenomenally skillful drumming, and immeasurably lifted the spirit of the band, and whoever crossed his path, as one of the kindest and most charismatic gentlemen out there.
This song is about looking after your friends and family; it’s about taking the time to try and leave a positive impact on earth everyday, as if it’s your last. It’s about remembering to hug and high five your friends every time you see them, and to take the time to appreciate every moment we are given here on this beautiful planet. With this song we pay homage to the miracle of the known, the mystery of the unknown, and our limited time within it.”
Comprised of singer Sebastian ‘Bast’ Pringle, guitar and txalaparta player Graham Dickson and multi-instrumentalist Gilbert Vierich, the band has garnered over 350 million streams to date.
