To celebrate the release of their studio album, “Church”, Galantis has partnered with Wave (an entertainment technology company) to create “Church of Galantis: Live Virtual Concert”. The stunning virtual reality experience will unite Galantis’ global fanbase on February 26, 2020, at 11:30 AM (PT).
No headset is required for this virtual performance. Simply attend through the duo’s YouTube Channel at the time of the event and be whisked away into the “Church of Galantis”. (A time and date for the rebroadcast of the special virtual reality experience in Wave will be announced soon).
Church of Galantis: Live Virtual Concert
“We’re so excited to be able to share the ‘Church of Galantis’ show with all of our Seafoxnation around the world. We had this idea to bring ‘Church’ into a virtual realm, where everyone could come together as one and share this awesome experience no matter where you live. This virtual tour stop with Wave will be a special one.” – stated Galantis
Galantis will use Wave’s proprietary technology to transform into custom avatars in real-time and perform an exhilarating, live 30-minute set. Fans from around the world can join via Galantis’ YouTube channel as Seafoxes, embodying the beloved Galantis mascot for the show.
The show will be a magical, one-of-a-kind live experience, incorporating fantastical elements and surprises. Also, it marks several monumental moments for Wave. Furthermore, the show will be the first to capture two live performers with motion capture technology, translating Christian Karlsson and Linus Eklöw’s dynamic movements and artistry into a virtual world.

“This is one of the most breathtaking shows we’ve created. We look forward to inviting Seafoxation into this beautiful virtual venue. We loved collaborating with Galantis and the amazing team at Atlantic Records. Also, we are believers!” – stated Adam Arrigo, Wave CEO & co-founder
As always, there will be unforgettable moments and very special cameos that can’t be missed. In addition, Wave will re-broadcast Galantis’ virtual experience across multiple time zones, allowing their fans from all around the world to experience the magic. A special virtual reality experience re-broadcast in the Wave app will also be available, time and date to be announced soon.
Not too long ago, Galantis released their third studio album, entitled, “Church”, on February 7 via Atlantic/Big Beat Records. The Grammy-nominated duo’s first new album in three years. Also, the project follows on the heels of their sophomore album, “The Aviary”, which had a Top 10 debut in 23 countries. Plus, it spawned the platinum-certified single, “No Money”, which hit the Top 5 on the UK Singles Chart.
Galantis – “Church” album
“It’s important for us to have meaning behind our music. Our album ‘Church’ doesn’t necessarily refer to a building or a specific religion. But instead to people banded together in similar belief for a better humanity. Whether it’s advocating peace, change, or just lifting each other up. That’s our ‘Faith’ and ‘Church’.” – stated Galantis
Preceding the release was the explosive single, “Faith”, featuring country music legend Dolly Parton and Dutch singer-songwriter Mr Probz. “Faith” received its first play on BBC Radio 1, the world’s biggest radio show for dance music. Also, it received syndication across seven countries to an audience of over 18 million listeners.
Galantis has garnered multiple GRAMMY nominations. Also, they have accumulated an excess of over 3 billion streams worldwide and 42 platinum records. Their acclaimed status has even spun off into an opportunity to write the theme song for Nintendo Superworld.
So far, Galantis has sold-out UK shows at Brixton Academy, The Roundhouse, and SSE Arena. Also, they have graced the stages of BBC 1 Radio 1’s Big Weekend, Coachella, Ultra Europe, and Lollapalooza.
