The Phoenix Foundation Announce New Album 'Fandango' Released On On 29th April 2013

New Zealand's The Phoenix Foundation, leading lights of the mini Kiwi pysch rock invasion with Connan Mockasin, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Opossum and Lawrence Arabia, are all set to return with their new double album 'Fandango' on 29th April 2013.

The band, who had a critical and commercial hit with 2011's album 'Buffalo' (and which preceded them playing Glastonbury and performing on Later with Jools Holland), have returned with an expansive, bold and gloriously rich statement on 'Fandango'.  The album, an uncompromising 78 minutes, sees the band explore a range of moods and musical threads from the glowering motorik opener of 'Black Mould', the slick yacht rock of 'Sideways Glanc'e and end-of-the-party psyche-folk of 'Modern Rock'.

The Wellington based six piece's first cut from the album is 'The Captain', a 3 minute ballad of melancholic melodic joy featuring the vocal talents of Lukasz Buda, one of the band's two front men. 

The Phoenix Foundation are lead vocalists/guitarists Samuel Flynn Scott and Lukasz Buda, Conrad Wedde (guitars, keys), Tom Callwood (bass guitar, vocals), Chris O'Connor (drums) and Will Ricketts (percussion, keyboards).

The band will be in tour in support of the record in May as follows:
May 09 Oran Mor, Glasgow
May 10 Deaf Institute, Manchester
May 11 Kazimier, Liverpool
May 14 Electric Ballroom, London
May 16 Thekla, Bristol
