the last few months we’ve followed Crystal Fighters quite closely with an album review, live review and even interview! Now we see the band unveiled the first in a series of acoustic videos which features the band playing live in a cave ahead of their special one-off show on 29th August in a cave, deep in the Basque hills where they wrote the ‘Cave Rave’ album.

Fresh from their their electrifying performance at Optimus Alive this weekend, which gained them the title of “best festival band on the planet” from Gigwise, Crystal Fighters will play a host of festival dates throughout the summer including Reading & Leeds (headlining the Festival Republic stage) and Bestival. They’ll then head out on a full UK tour in November, with their biggest London headline show to date at London’s Brixton Academy. Full UK listings below.

Crystal Fighters’ captivating and high-energy show has drawn critical acclaim from the likes of CMJ who state “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.”
