Galactic Announce New Album And Tour Dates For Already Ready Already


Galactic are excited to announce their forthcoming LP Already Ready Already, out February 8th, 2019 on Tchoup-Zilla Records. The renowned genre-bending New Orleans band’s 10th studio LP features guest appearances from Princess Shaw, Miss Charm Taylor, David Shaw, Nahko, Erica Falls, and BOYFRIEND. Already Ready Already follows the group’s 2015 release Into the Deep, which saw them profiled by NPR’s Weekend Edition as they celebrated their incredible two-decade career, and lead The New York Times to highlight their bonafides, writing that “Galactic has spent the last 20 years strengthening its claim as a defining New Orleans funk band”.

Galactic will hit the road next year following the new album’s release, playing shows throughout both coasts in February and March. In conjunction with the tour and album announcement, today they are releasing the Already Ready Already tour mixtape, featuring clips of songs from the new album via SoundCloud – Stream here now!”

“It’s hard to overstate the infectious energy and thrill of a live performance by the New Orleans band Galactic.” —NPR Music

“Onstage Galactic is a first-rate funk band. In the studio it has become a perpetually recombinant group of musicians, producers and conceptualizers, hooking up with collaborators from New Orleans and far beyond.” — The New York Times

For over 20 years, Ben Ellman, Robert Mercurio, Stanton Moore, Jeff Raines, and Rich Vogel have been exploring the seemingly limitless musical possibilities born out of their work together as Galactic. Over those years, the seminal New Orleans band has consistently pushed artistic boundaries on the road and in the studio, approaching their music with open ears and drawing inspiration as much from the sounds bubbling up from their city’s streets as they do from each other.
