Already Ready Already Pre-order + First Track Release!

Aleady Ready Already is available for pre-order NOW here. All pre-orders will instantly give you access to our first single of the record, Clap Your Hands feat. Miss Charm Taylor!

Galactic’s first new studio album in more than three years, ALREADY READY ALREADY – released on their own Tchuop-Zilla Records – sees the renowned New Orleans-based instrumental outfit taking a distinctly contemporary approach towards their own progressive sound, interpolating modern rhythms and electronic instrumentation within the house-shaking framework of Crescent City funk pop ‘n’ roll. Produced by the band’s Robert Mercurio and Ben Ellman, the new LP finds Galactic once again enlisting a diverse array of vocal collaborators to assist in their musical exploration, each of whom lend lyrical flavor and individualistic personality to the band’s multi-faceted sonic grooves. Bookended by a high powered pair of trademark Galactic instrumentals that give the album its title, ALREADY READY ALREADY. The album is a short, sharp blast of undeniable creative muscle, from the stripped down kick/snap verses of “Going Straight Crazy,” featuring New Orleans singer (and YouTube sensation) Princess Shaw, to punk cabaret artist Boyfriend’s quirky speed-rap on the breakneck “Dance At My Funeral.” As ever, Galactic’s omnivorous musical interests make easy classification utterly impossible – ALREADY READY ALREADY is as all encompassing and universal as the band’s moniker established long ago.

“I’ve never been able to put a label on what we do,” Ellman says. “I can throw out a lot of words – I could say it’s funk or I could say it’s R&B or jazz or whatever else, but really, it’s all of that.”

Galactic Purchases Tipitina’s!

Galactic and Mary and Roland von Kurnatowski are excited to announce the band’s purchase and future stewardship of the legendary Tipitina’s nightclub. The iconic two-story yellow building on the corner of Tchoupitoulas Street and Napoleon Avenue will continue its rich tradition of hosting the most talented musicians and groups from New Orleans and the world at large.

“Our goal is to preserve, promote, and protect the future of New Orleans music, culture and heritage via the Tipitina’s venue and brand,” says Galactic’s Stanton Moore. “We’re so incredibly honored to be part of the team tasked to be the current caretakers of such a historic venue,” adds the band’s Ben Ellman. “My connection with the club started way before I was lucky enough to take the stage. My first job in New Orleans was at Tipitina’s as a cook in the (now defunct) kitchen. The importance of respecting what Tips means for musicians and the city of New Orleans is not lost on us. We’re excited for the future of the club and look forward to all the amazing music and good times ahead!”

“We received multiple attractive offers for Tipitina’s,” said Roland von Kurnatowski. It was really important to us to ensure that this club, the icon that is Tipitina’s, end up in the right hands. We purchased the club in 1997 and have nurtured it ever since. We’re confident that Galactic is the right fit - that they will cherish Tipitina’s and take it to the next level while protecting all that makes Tips such an authentic American cultural venue.”

The purchase of Tipitina’s does not include the Tipitina’s Foundation, which was created by the von Kurnatowskis to ​support Louisiana and New Orleans’ irreplaceable music community and preserve the state’s unique musical cultures by promoting childhood music education, the professional development of adult musicians, and the increased profile and viability of Louisiana music as a cultural, educational, and economic resource.
