Mumford and Sons want to set the record straight for their English fans once and for all. They are neither conservative or posh, despite the fact that they wear a lot of tweed.
With just a brief introduction, courtesy of frontman Thomas Mars (en français, of course), Phoenix kicked off their Live On Letterman performance last night (April 30).
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.
At first Phoenix might have seemed like an unlikely choice to headline this year’s Coachella Festival, but the combination of great songs and a stellar live show proves the band is more than ready for top billing. We explore in this episode of Radio.com Essentials.
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.
Mumford & Sons frontman Marcus Mumford, who often inserts religious references into his songwriting, has remained relatively tight-lipped about his religious beliefs, despite the band’s latest album Babel having a biblical-inspired title. That is, until now.
