I’m a big fan of the French band Phoenix. Their pop-rock tunes will have you tapping your feet and humming for days. Their album Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix is one of my most played records and was my travel soundtrack for months (aka I played it whenever flying, busing, taking the train, etc). Even today, as I walk almost a mile back from my internship to my dorm, I constantly blast “1901” or “Lasso”. The entire album pumps me up even after a long day. Recently, it’s been announced that the band is coming out with a tour documentary that captures the almost two years the band spent touring in support of their breakout album. It’ll be released on French and German TV this week, according to The AV Club , but no word on if and when the documentary will be made available to those of us in the States. In the meantime enjoy the trailer for what will sure be a cool, French look at band and tour life.
