“Fela!” pit band Antibalas hits the road

Antibalas Antibalas, the Brooklyn-based Afrobeat unit that has served as the house band for the musical "Fela!" during the Tony-winning show's off-Broadway and Broadway runs, is pulling up stakes for a series of tour dates that will bring the band to the West Coast.

The group will also be issuing a new 12-inch single, "Rat Race"/"Se Chiflo," through its own Exactamundo imprint. In August, New York-based indie Ropeadope Records will re-release Antibalas' 2004 album "Who Is This America?"

Tour dates follow after the jump.
