Crystal Fighters are set to embark on their their North American tour, and AXS is giving away a pair of tickets to their show in Los Angeles at the El Rey Theatre for you and a friend. The band recently released their third studio album Everything Is My Family, which they worked on all separately.
"Bas (Sebastian) was bringing back elements from the jungle in Costa Rica—he was there for six months out of touch and learned a lot of indigenous music from that part of the world," Graham Dickson, one third of the trio, told AXS in a recent interview. "I was in a retreat up in Maine in the mountains, kind of tapping out for a minute and making music. Gilbert was in London doing his thing. Together, we brought a much different kind of force individually, and I think you can hear that it's not just the classic Crystal Fighters sound. In some ways you can hear fun songs that you can dance to and what not, but there's also some more elaborate numbers that take you more on a journey than some of the previous albums do."
To enter to win the tickets,, follow AXS on Instagram (@axsevents). Tag a friend who you would want to go to the show with and winners will be announced on March 27. Good luck!
