It’s Cantaloupe versus Galaxians this October as both bands battle to win your hearts to triumph as the best band in the cosmos! This duel of an epic scale will rage during a stellar upcoming tour that will see Cantaloupe charming the crowd with their catchy, infectious synth pop. Unbeknownst to the casual dancer, these beautiful sounds emitting from the keyboards from the Cantaloupe camp is a clever ploy to lull you the listener, into an induced dream-like state, such that resistance becomes futile and you become overcome with a sense of immense joy and unstoppable moving feet.

Alas, Galaxians have something up their sleeves! Bringing the cosmic disco-funk from a flashback of 80s Miami and armed with another set of synths and a badass drummer, they intend to destroy the Cantaloupe ritual, and instead cast a spell of their own with their interpretation of what a real party sounds like: the organic sounds of house, jump up boogie and delicious funk. Yes, they are bringing 1985 back.
