Phoenix will be celebrating the release of 'Bankrupt!', their fifth studio album, in style on April 22nd, as they land in London to play Shepherd's Bush Empire for what will be their first British show of the year. With their hotly anticipated follow up to 2009's critically acclaimed 'Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix' released on the same day, this will be a memorable chance for fans to experience the tracks in their full glory as the band touch back on these shores before embarking on a string of dates at some of the world's biggest festivals.
A series of U.S. tour dates will culminate in a Saturday night headline slot at this year's Coachella, before the French outfit return to Europe to play a number of the continent's most highly regarded events, starting with a headline Thursday night slot at Primavera Sound in Barcelona. UK festival appearances are due to be announced imminently.
'Bankrupt!' is the incredible follow up to 2009's critically lauded 'Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix', which sold over 1 million copies worldwide, was certified Gold in the U.S., and Platinum in Canada, Australia and France. The band also won the Grammy for Best Alternative Album. 'Bankrupt!' was co-produced by the band - Thomas Mars (vocals), Laurent Brancowitz (guitar), Christian Mazzalai (guitar), and Deck D'Arcy (bass) - and producer Philippe Zdar.
'Bankrupt!' will be released on April 22nd on Atlantic / Glassnote Records.
