The Delta Riggs are a group I really like. They just seem like a bunch of fun guys to hang around and chill out. I actually wrote about them recently, when they released their kickass new single ‘Surgery of Love‘. So I was definitely more than happy to see that they have announced their new album called ‘Active Galactic’, which is due out for release on August 26 – you can pre-order your copy right now here.

Speaking on behalf of the bands progress on the album:

It was super peaceful where we recorded; you feel ostracised from anything else in the universe. It’s important for us to really dive into the recording process without distraction. Vibe is key. It’s almost as paramount as the music. After nine days, cocktails at 5pm, suits at 6pm, a few minor disagreements and some intergalactic good times later – we had finished what we believe to be our finest work to date. Then we went to LA, which is a whole other story.— Monte from The Delta Riggs

To go with the announcement of their new album, The Delta Riggs have also announced details on a six-tier option pack for purchases of their Active Galactic album, featuring things like signed CDs, a sick NASA inspired jacket – that I am absolutely going to purchase – behind the scenes experience, a vinyl copy of the album; the opportunity to have Monte cook you and your friends dinner in Sydney or YOU and Simon (Showbiz) creating a one off piece of art in Melbourne Or YOU and Elliott cruising in LeFonda (his 1963 Chrysler Newport coup..)…or shooting the breeze and a bar tab with Rudy (Alex).

I highly suggest checking each tier and checking which one you’d like to purchase! As for those tour dates, keep reading on to see them live in your area!
