Phoenix Announces Title of New Album, <i>Bankrupt!</i>

French band Phoenix announced the title to their eagerly awaited follow up to 2009’s Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix earlier today. Lead singer Thomas Mars and his bandmates have been working on the new album, titled Bankrupt!, in a Paris studio since 2011.

A photo appeared on the Phoenix Facebook page today emblazoned with the words PHOENIX BANKRUPT!, along with a link to the band’s website, which flashes the same message over a snippet of dark synth sounds before fading to black. The album is expected to be released in April via Glassnote Records.
