phoenix 2

I hadn’t gotten around to checking out Phoenix’s new website yet by the time the guys of the LA Music Blogcast warned listeners not to, but silly me, I ignored their advice today when news broke that the band would be touring the U.S. My eyes are still hurting from the frantic, seizure-inducing flicker of the site, and I wasn’t able to find any information that wasn’t already available to me via press release, but hey, at least now I can agree from personal experience that, yes, there is no reason to click here.

Now that my little PSA is out of the way, on to the new tour announcement! Those in SoCal who aren’t going to Coachella may be disappointed to know the band doesn’t have an LA date set, but maybe you have a friend up at UC – Davis you can crash with for the night? Ticket pre-sale begins Thursday at 10am EST and general sale will be on Friday, so check out the full list of dates below, and for more info on the upcoming Phoenix album, Bankrupt!, projected for release via Glassnote Records this spring, keep your eyes right here on LA Music Blog where there is no risk of having an epileptic fit.
