Forthcoming album's remaining details, including track list and tour dates, revealed
Phoenix's upcoming fifth album, Bankrupt!, will be out April 23 via Loyaute/Glassnote Records, the band announced today (February 12). The French synth-pop four-piece also revealed the LP's cover (that quaint fruit-and-flower image up above) and track listing (the 10 songs listed below).
Phoenix co-produced their follow-up to 2009's adored Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix with Philippe Zdar. Back in 2011, frontman Thomas Mars described the forthcoming effort as "very experimental... very minimal." Since then, Glassnote head Daniel Glass leaked Bankruptcy!'s release date, Phoenix confirmed the full-length's title, and the band announced their first live dates in two years.
