Just a week after the release of their latest album, Bankrupt!, Phoenix is taking the stage for a special Live On Letterman performance.
No one would blame Phoenix if they decided to stick with the same crowd-pleasing sound that worked so well for them on their breakthrough album, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. But the French foursome definitely weren’t interested in continuing right where they left off in 2009. With their latest record, Bankrupt!, the band wanted to play around with their sound and maybe even force a few people to question whether they were even the same group of guys that made “1901.”
Phoenix would like to remind you not to forget the exclamation point at the end of Bankrupt!, their new album out April 23. The French foursome told Radio.com that the title’s punctuation was deliberately used to add a little mystique, a bit of danger. And without it, the title would mean something totally different.
Between headlining performances at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival April 13 and 20, the French foursome known as Phoenix will leave R. Kelly behind, hop aboard their tour bus and haul their equipment 138 miles north to the Red Bull Sound Space at KROQ.
America fell in love with Phoenix after the band’s 2009 performance on Saturday Night Live, but it turns out the career-defining moment almost never happened.
Artists adding extra songs onto deluxe editions of full-length albums is nothing new, but French band Phoenix have taken the practice to an extreme on Bankrupt!, their forthcoming new album set for release on April 23.
After debuting the comeback song “Entertainment” with a lyric video last month, French band Phoenix has released a sweeping and dramatic official music video for the first single from their upcoming full-length, Bankrupt!
