Phoenix Announce New Album 'Bankrupt!' Released April 22nd 2013

Phoenix will release their fifth album, 'Bankrupt!', in the UK on April 22nd.  '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.
With the success of 'Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix' leading to a sold-out show at New York's Madison Square Garden in 2010, the band's live schedule this time round is even bigger still. A string of U.S. dates will culminate in a Saturday night headlining slot at this year's Coachella, before embarking on a string of European festival performances that kicks off by headlining the Thursday night at Primavera Sound.

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.

The tour dates:
13/04 - Indio, CA @ Coachella [Headlining]
