Having just completed a run of shows in support of the 'Surgery of Love' single, The Delta Riggs have announced the release of their new album Active Galactic which will be in-stores in New Zealand on February 17th 2017 via Inertia Music.
Active Galactic, produced by the band and Jason Hollis, is The Riggs’ third studio LP featuring 13 new cuts that run the gamut of musical genres from the Rolling Stones inspired 'Surgery of Love', the disco-rock of 'Never Seen This Before' and the high powered N*E*R*D infused 'Baddest Mother Fucker in the Beehive'. Active Galactic was recorded in isolation at The Grove Studios north of Sydney in just nine days, mixed in Melbourne and mastered in Los Angeles.
On the recording process, Monte explains “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.”
The growth from the band’s previous record, Dipz Zebazios, to Active Galactic is evident as this new album shows a band assured in its trajectory in musical life, and takes a strong step forward in an ever-growing career.
