Extra Golden announces UK/US tour dates


Extra Golden are not only set to release their third long-player Thank You Very Quickly on March 10th, but are also getting ready to tour extensively in support of the new album.  In March the band will be joining up with Baaba Maal and Oliver Mtukudzi on the fifth installment of the prestigious African Soul Rebels tour in the UK.  After a brief rest they’ll make their way across the ocean to play an East Coast tour and are expected to hit the West Coast in May (keep an eye out for those dates).  All of this comes after a very successful 2008 on the road.  Having graced the stages of Pitchfork, Roskilde, Lincoln Center and even appearing on the UK’s "Culture Show", Extra Golden’s grooves are tighter than ever and ready to set the dance floor ablaze.
