GALANTIS Announce North American Tour Kicking Off With Live Debut at Coachella

"You (Extended Mix)" Out Now; Self-Titled EP Out April 1 via Big Beat Records

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 03/04/14 -- Galantis, the duo of Christian "Bloodshy" Karlsson of Miike Snow and Linus Eklow aka Style of Eye, have announced a North American tour, which will be Galantis' debut live dates. The tour includes appearances at the Coachella Festival on April 12th and 19th. When Galantis was conceived, they quickly realized a dj set would not embody the music's Olympian sound that unites various branches of electronic music and have been putting together a live show with the adventurous spirit and innovation their songs demand. Ticket presale starts today, tickets available here. The general on sale date is Thursday 3/6 and tickets will be available at wearegalantis.com.

Galantis just released an extended mix of their new single "You" on Beatport, listen here. "You" begins with a spiraling piano and an instantly memorable vocal hook with the custom "Galantis filter" which blends male and female vocals before the beat explodes to meteoric heights. Listen to "You" here and where it premiered on Entertainment Weekly. Along with the release of "You" last week, Galantis announced that their eagerly-anticipated debut self-titled EP will be released on April 1 by Big Beat Records.

Their previous single, "Smile," became a dance club staple and has been championed by their peers including Kaskade, Diplo, Tiesto, Dada Life, Steve Angello, and radio legend Pete Tong, who featured it as an Essential Tune. The "Smile" remix package features an edit of the track by Kaskade, and remixes from Bart B More, Marco V, East and Young, Danny Howard, and Dem Slackers

Earlier this month, Galantis released the explicit director's cut of the already titillating video for "Smile" as a Valentine to fans. The video was directed by Dano Cerny and premiered on Noisey.

Christian Karlsson and Linus Eklow have individually been celebrated for creating classic pop singles for other artists and their contributions to electronic music. Karlsson is a third of celebrated indie band Miike Snow and one half of production duo Bloodshy & Avant who have helped reinvent pop stars from Madonna to Britney Spears. He co-wrote and produced "Toxic" for Spears for which he won a Best Dance Recording GRAMMY. Eklow co- wrote and produced Icona Pop's international No. 1 smash "I Love It" ft. Charli XCX and has left a singular stamp on electronic music, defying genre and releasing work on a diverse swath of iconic labels. After admiring each other from afar, the pair set up a studio on a remote island in the Baltic Sea and Galantis was born.
