Phoenix love the UK, tour more in October
With their current UK and Europe tour not even finished, French electro-tinged, indie-popsters Phoenix are set to return to these shores in October for a five date stint.
The four-piece recently released Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix and some eager critics may already be pencilling this in for End Of Year Lists.
Even if it doesn't make it into those, it'll be in some "we're half way through the year, so here's we'll do one" lists though, surely.
Anyway, before the new dates, here are the currently announced, ongoing ones for this summer in the UK.
24 - Secret Garden Party, Cambridgeshire
25 - Camp Bestival, Dorset
22 - V Festival, Chelmsford
23 - V Festival, Staffordshire
And here are the NEW dates:
24 - O2 Academy 2, Birmingham
25 - Arches, Glasgow
26 - O2 Academy, Bristol
27 - Academy 2, Manchester
28 - O2 Academy, Brixton
Plenty of academy action for you there.
Meanwhile, during Grizzly Bear Week on DiS, fronmtman Ed Droste spoke to Phoenix for our Artist 'n' Artist feature. Listen - it's an audio clip! - to the results here.
