The French band responsible for alternative smashes “1901” and “Lisztomania,” from their GRAMMY-winning Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, officially announced today that they will release the first single from their new album on Monday, February 18 around 2:30 pm PST.
Phoenix’s anticipated forthcoming album, Bankrupt, is scheduled to hit stores April 22.
When the announcement of a new album arrived, the band turned their website into an epileptic seizure-inducing series of flashing lights and colors. The band then changed the site to feature this very simple video.
02. The Real Thing
03. S.O.S. In Bel Air
04. Trying To Be Cool
06. Drakkar Noir
10. Oblique City
Phoenix will come out swinging with two weekends of Coachella-headlining performances, April 13 and 20. The band will make the most of their time in the western U.S. dates by playing nearby markets.
