Galactic Adds 2012 Dates

Galactic have confirmed an extensive 2012 tour in support of their new studio album Carnivale Electricos. As previously reported, the album celebrates the connections between Carnivale and Mardi Gras with the help of Mystikal, Mannie Fresh, Al “Carnival Time” Johnson, Cyril and Ivan Neville, Moyseis Marques and many others. The group’s extended run will kick off in Mobile, AL on February 14 and come to a close in Memphis, TN on, well, April 20. While the group has no show scheduled on February 21, the album’s release date, their tour routing leaves open the possibility of an additional hometown show that night.

Recent Galactic collaborators Corey Glover (Living Colour) and Corey Henry (Rebirth Brass Band) will perform with the ensemble throughout the run while The Soul Rebels, Orgone, Steel Pulse, DJ Logic and ALO will split opening duties. For a preview of the album, be sure to head over to the Relix.com Audio Player.

Galactic plays their annual Lundi Gras sunrise show into Mardi Gras day (2/21/12) at Tip’s every year (with a preceding Saturday night show as well). With the album release date being Mardi Gras day, one would probably expect Lundi Gras to be an extra special album release party night.
