UnderTheRadar Presents The Phoenix Foundation – ‘Tom’s Lunch’ EP and Release Tour
The Phoenix Foundation have wasted no time moving on to new recordings after the release of 2013’s Fandango. Luke Buda felt a sense of urgency to get to work with the band’s new drummer, Chris O’Connor and to push themselves into new directions.
Fandango was the end of era, the full stop on the bands journey to find pristine production perfecto-land. Tom’s Lunch is the start of a new chapter and what better way to follow up a double album of mystical pop than with an EP of short snappy tracks, featuring two tracks mixed by David Fridmann (Flaming Lips, MGMT, Tame Impala).
Tom’s Lunch EP will be released on 16 May on CD and Digital formats, Pre-Orders Start today from Itunes, JBHIFI and direct from bandcamp.
In celebration of their upcoming release of their brand-new EP ‘Tom’s Lunch’, The Phoenix Foundation announces a six-stop New Zealand tour this May/June presented by UnderTheRadar.
Their first NZ tour in a year will give audiences a chance to see them perform the new songs live for the very first time.
Tickets on sale from Under the Radar and support for all shows will be announced in the coming weeks.
