French indie rock powerhouse Phoenix recently confirmed their plans to tour Australia, first announcing themselves as part of Future Music Festival 2014, before locking in a round of headlining dates for good measure. Before all of this goes down, Music Feeds caught up with main man Thomas Mars to get his thoughts on the situation.
Needless to say, Mars is fairly excited to be heading down, and though his bandmates aren’t with him in New York at the moment, he’s certain they feel the same. The rest of the outfit are currently busying themselves back in the homeland, but Mars fills us in on what the gang have been up to post-Halloween 2013.
Phoenix will be returning for the first time since releasing their stunning new album, Bankrupt!, which dropped earlier this year. Mars allows us to peek under the hood of the release, giving us an insider’s take on what went on during the creation of the record and the reasons behind the direction.
