Phoenix to embark on massive world tour

It’s been a while since fans have heard anything from team Phoenix, but now, things have changed. On Monday (March 27), the French band announced a lengthy world tour. The upcoming tour will kick off on May 12 at the Fillmore Miami Beach in Miami and conclude on September 30 at the Alexandra Palace in London. Whitney, Lemon Twigs, and Miike Snow will take turns opening for the group during the trek. Whitney will open during the first leg, Lemon Twigs will take over for the second leg, and Miike Snow will wrap open during the final leg of the tour.

In addition to their headlining gigs, the group will also make several appearances at a handful of music festivals including Atlanta’s Shaky Knees, New York’s Governors Ball, Japan’s Summersonic, and many more.

This upcoming tour will be the band’s first tour in almost three years. The last time they hit the road was back in 2014 in support of their fifth studio album, Bankrupt! The tour news comes weeks after the band took to social media to tease new music. Though they haven’t confirmed a new album, there’s only a matter of time before the electro-pop act confirms the release of their sixth studio album.

Echo and the Bunnymen to Release New Album, Go on World Tour


Fans of Echo and the Bunnymen, it looks like some really good news is on the horizon for your little black hearts.

The band have taken to their Facebook page to announce that they will be releasing a new album, soon. The date and other information, at the time, are unknown, but by the countdown that they have going on the social media account, more information should be coming our way in T-minus six days. For all purposes, the album is still-untitled, but frontman Ian McCulloch has previously referred to it as The Garden of Meedin.’ 

When asked about the new material in an interview last May, McCulloch said, “It’s the band’s best work for a very long time. [It’s] more like the early stuff with loads of spiky guitars and space.”

“The idea is to make the greatest album we’ve ever made. I always go into things thinking that anyway. I’ve spent the last 10 years trying to see where I could go with my voice and if I could write some bridges. Then I looked back and realised we never had any bridges.”

The last album that the Liverpool-based group released was 2009′s The Fountain. In support of the new album, the band have also announced that they would be going on a world tour. Dates, like much of the album’s information, are still unknown, but according to NME, the European dates are already a done deal and are currently int he process of booking the North American dates.

Hawthorne Heights Announced ‘Silence in Black and White’ World Tour


Looks like Hawthorne Heights are ready to take things back to 2004 because the band have announced that they will be heading out on The Silence in Black and White World Tour.

With those who weren’t around during that time, emo was huge and Hawthorne Heights were probably one of the bands to blame for that. The Silence in Black and White was the album that made them a household name with songs like “Ohio is for Lovers” and “Niki FM.”

Like most of the bands that released album during that defining music year, 2014 marks the tenth anniversary of the break through album so why not go on a world tour to celebrate its anniversary.

The tour is set to kick off on April 8 in Dublin and go throughout Europe eventually ending on May 8 in Belgium. But if your tour date has not been announced, which is anybody who does not live in Europe, then don;t sweat it because these dates are the just the first of many to be released. Dates in Asia, Australia, and North America will reportedly be coming soon.

All information about tickets and VIP tickets can be seen on the band’s website. The VIP package includes acoustic performances, meet and greets as well as an acoustic version of The Silence In Black and White. There is no other mention about the acoustic version of the album, but we’re pretty sure they;ll begin to sell it at their show once the tour starts up.
