Phoenix appearance and new album to rekindle old sparks

August 28, 2013 by  

The band Phoenix has risen from the ashes after four quiet years, with the release of its new album ‘Bankrupt!’, and locals will get a taste of it later this week as the band performs in Norfolk.

A change in direction from the band’s previous work, ‘Bankrupt!’ does not offer solutions to world crises or political statements, and no longer maintains much of the sound of the old Phoenix. The album is the direct result of a process that took place after Phoenix ended its last tour, walking off stage in late 2010.

After much experimenting with color and sound using an oscilloscope laboratory, the band says that it recreated a sound that reminded them of their homeland, France. Once the New York sessions were complete, the band members went their own way, but continued the process of change using modern internet communications.

With poster and flyer printing likely to have been carried out to promote the band’s return and change of direction, there are likely to be plenty of musical ears turned into the upcoming performance, which will cost $40 to attend.

Phoenix will be performing on Friday, August 30, with the doors opening at 7:00 pm and the show beginning at 8:00 pm at The Norva located at 317 Monticello Avenue in Norfolk, Virginia.
