RX Bandits to play Coachella, full album shows, release new video

Southern California's multifaceted prog-psych-rock quartet RX Bandits has unveiled plans to perform three previous albums (The Resignation, And The Battle Begun and Mandala) in their entirety in three successive shows in New York City on March 25th, 26th and 27th during the band's upcoming spring tour. The group will also perform at this year's Coachella music festival on Saturday, April 17th. Additionally, RX Bandits have released a new video (watch HERE) for the song "Hope Is A Butterfly, No Net Its Captor" off their latest album, Mandala.

RX Bandits once again take to the road this month, first in Australia as the group joins the massive multi-city traveling Soundwave Festival alongside Faith No More, Jane's Addiction, Sunny Day Real Estate and more. Then, headlining US dates follow in March with The Builders and the Butchers and Zechs Marquise supporting. Please see below for complete dates. Watch the official tour promo video HERE.

RX Bandits recently performed a special acoustic set on BBC Radio 1's "The Punk Show with Mike Davies" and appeared on Fuel TV's "The Daily Habit". Click here to watch videos.

Mandala: few titles are as perfectly befitting an album for a band reaching the culmination of a decade-long musical transformation. With this recording, RX Bandits have truly struck the essence of their merging of genres into a complete and masterfully detailed mosaic. Check out the MP3 for the single, "My Lonesome Only Friend" HERE. Stream the entire album HERE.

Tracking for Mandala took place at The Mouse House Studio in Northern Pasadena in March of 2009, and marked the return of producer Chris Fudurich to the fold.The album features dramatically hypnotic artwork by Sonny Kay. Mandala was released July 21st, 2009 via Sargent House.
