News The Phoenix Foundation Reveal New Album, ‘Fandango’

The New Zealand band will release the double record this spring.

New Zealand sextet The Phoenix Foundation have announced they are to release a new album this spring.

'Fandango', the follow-up to the band's 'Buffalo', released in 2011, is a double album, and will be out via Memphis Industries on 29th April.

Vocalist Samuel Flynn Scott explains. 'Damn the zeitgeist, I still rejoice in the pan-sexual opulence of a double gate-fold vinyl album. Honestly I'm thoroughly satisfied that we have made 80 minutes of tripped out pop oddities that pays absolutely no attention to the short form game of contemporary music. This is Test Match music, maybe it's prog or psyche-folk, whatever it is it's music that we thought about a lot, worked on a lot and care about in the minutia'.

The tracklisting for 'Fandango' is:

Black Mould
Modern Rock
The Captain
Thames Soup
Evolution Did
Inside Me Dead

Morning Riff
Sideways Glance
Friendly Society

The first track to be unveiled from the record is 'The Captain', which features vocals from 'other frontman' Lukasz Buda.

The band will return to the UK for a short tour this May in support of the release, beginning in Glasgow on 9th May.
