Phoenix Release New Music Video


“Trying to be Cool” might be the name of Phoenix’s music video but that begs the question, are the French electro-rock group trying to be cool in it?

But then again, how hard is it to be cool when you have ladies in bikinis for no reason, guys blowing bubbles, cannons, a Marilyn Monroe tribute, an angry kid playing chess, solo ping pong, and a sweet dance sequence?

Oh yeah, there are also snippets of the band performing but come on.

Anyway, the video can be seen below.

“Trying to be Cool” is featured on the band’s recent release, Bankrupt! which they will be touring for all the way until late November where they will wrap up their world tour in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Phoenix Stream “Bankrupt!”


Phoenix are having a heck of a year so far starting with a brand new song and an equally dramatic music video to go along with it. Now they have all these festival dates scheduled for the summer months, so what else could the French band do to make their fans happy?

How about streaming their new album, Bankrupt! in its entirety on iTunes?

Phoenix Releases ‘Entertainment’ Video


A little over two weeks ago, the boys from Phoenix gave their fans the first single from their upcoming new album. While it was just the audio version of the new track, Entertainment, the band have now given the fans a full music video which features romance, violence, high drama; all the making for a Korean soap opera.

Phoenix Release New Track


French band Phoenix are back with a brand new track off their upcoming album, Bankrupt!  It’s been a little over four years since the release of their last album, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix which was met with a lot of accolades and was critically.

In April 2011, the band posted pictures of themselves with the caption reading “songwriting” giving fans hope that a new album would soon be in the works. In January 2012, the band had announced that they officially had four songs done for their fifth album which would be released in the Summer of 2012 with a tour in the Fall, but like life that did not exactly pan out. Exactly after a year after that announcement, the band revealed that the still untitled album would be named Bankrupt! and then gave the fans a teaser what to expect. Earlier this month the band has revealed the official release date for the new album.

Phoenix fans (and non-fans alike) can check out the audio for their new song (and first single), Entertainment right here:

Bankrupt! will be available on April 23 in the US.
