Crystal Fighters took their name from an unfinished opera written by band member Laure’s Basque grandfather during his final months of insanity. Captivated by the Basque folk music and mythology – and the opera’s seemingly prophetic contents – Crystal Fighters was formed in an attempt to expand upon the wild and deranged spirit of the old man’s writings. Crystal Fighters released “I Love London” and “Xtatic Truth” on Kitsune in 2009, then set up Zirkulo Records to release their debut album “Star Of Love” – which was subsequently licensed to PIAS (Europe & Australia), KSR (Japan), and Atlantic (USA). Their second album “Cave Rave” was released in May of 2013 and the band have since toured globally throughout 2014 and 2015, including headline dates at Somersault festival, UK and Dcode festival, Spain. New album ‘Everything Is My Family’ is released in October 2016.
