Crystal Stilts Release New Single; Announce New Tour

Crystal Stilts are back with a new single, “Delirium Tremendous,” which was released today and is available digitally via iTunes. Listen to “Star Crawl” above.

Crystal Stilts is an American post punk band from Brooklyn, New York City that was formed in 2003 by founding members Brad Hargett and JB Townsend. The band now also includes members Andy Adler, Keegan Cooke, and Kyle Forester. Speaking about the new single, Hargett explained, “‘Delirium Tremendous’ is not just a play on delirium tremens, but Mysterium Tremendum, and the song is about basically the fact that those types of unifying, numinous states are usually reached through a delirium of some kind. I have this weird old book/pamphlet of chants and prayers, where there’s lots of repetition of whatever/whomever is being addressed. So it’s meant to be just like a chant or prayer. A formula.”

The song comes in celebration of the band’s upcoming East Coast tour dates this June. The band is to kick off their tour in June at the Rock and Roll hotel in Washington, DC. A full detail of their upcoming shows can be found below.
