Like most other things in life, Crystal Fighters have delivered news both good and bad this month. The multi-national, Basque-inspired electronic/folk band made us frown last week with word that their upcoming North American tour would be postponed, a run that included a late-September party at the Sinclair in Cambridge.
Part of the reasoning for nixing their hop across the Atlantic, according to the band, was a sharpened effort to complete their new album, the long-awaited follow-up to 2013’s Cave Rave. This week, the first track off the as-yet-untitled new LP has surfaced, and it arrives just in time for summer.
The upbeat, tropical jam is called “All Night”, and you can listen to it via the Fighters’ Soundcloud below, as well as read their note to fans’ about last week’s tour cancellation. One day, soon, hopefully, we’ll be able to party “All Night” with the band on this side of the world.
