LE GALAXIE, one of the greatest live bands in Ireland, make a welcome return to Galway on Friday May 1 as part of their Irish tour to support their new album Le Club.
The band’s exciting mixture of indie-rock, electro-pop, and dance, enhanced by their sense of showmanship, enthusiasm, and understanding of rhythm, has led them to play at and headline major venues and festivals across Ireland and Europe; be nominated for the 2013 Meteor Choice Music Prize; and win entertainment.ie’s Irish Live Band of the Year Award. Next month the Dublin quartet will perform at the prestigious SouthXSouthWest Festival in Texas. As The Irish Times said: “Over the past two years, Le Galaxie have transformed themselves into a juggernaut of a party band, jack knifing into crowds who are only too happy to take the hit”.
The band release their second album Le Club on Friday April 24 through Universal Music Ireland. It will feature 14 electronica tracks heavy with rhythmic sequences and vocal samples, including the stomping, technicolour ‘Put the Chain On’, the synth-driven title track, as well as the previously released singles ‘Carmen’ and ‘Humanise’:
The Róisín Dubh show is an album launch event. Doors are at 9pm. Tickets are available at www.roisindubh.net, the Ticket Desk at OMG Zhivago, Shop Street, and The Róisín Dubh.
