Phoenix Announce First Live Show In 3 Years; Is A New Album On The Way?
Thu, 17 Nov 2016 10:07:54
It's been three years since Phoenix last played live. However, they have announced that the wait for new shows will be over shortly. The band from Versailles, France will rise from the ashes at next summer's Bilbao BBK Live. The festival will take place next summer on July 6th - 8th in Bilbao, Spain.
Phoenix has not released an album since 2013's Bankrupt!, but sparked new album speculation yesterday when they updated their Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram profile photos with the same CMYK image. Their website was also updated with a different image.
Bankrupt! was the most commercially successful album of the band's career, reaching number three in France and number four on the U.S. Billboard 200. Phoenix most recently released a cover of The Beach Boys' "Alone on Christmas Day" with Bill Murray, as part of 2015 A Very Murray Christmas. The movie was directed by Sofia Coppola who is married to Phoenix lead singer Thomas Mars.
There is still no word on if or when we could be seeing a new Phoenix album, but hopefully news will be coming soon. ARTISTdirect will continue to keep you updated as information is released.
