Phoenix have revealed that their new album will be named 'Bankrupt!'
A lot has changed in the world of Phoenix. Long cult delights, the band released 'Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix' back in 2009 to near unanimous acclaim. The album sold well, but then something strange happened - it kept on selling.
Arguably the band's breakthrough moment, 'Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix' spawned a global tour and an accompanying concert DVD.
Taking time off to focus on their next move, Phoenix broke cover last night. The band's upcoming album is set to be named - somewhat ironically - 'Bankrupt!' and will be released this year.
Alongside this, Phoenix placed a short clip online containing the album title and a short clip of new music, presumably drawn from the forthcoming LP. Warning: don't watch this if you suffer from epilepsy.
Here's the clip.
