The Phantom Band are back on the radar and are due to release their next album 2nd June, Strange Friend via Chemikal Underground Records.
The first single to be taken from the album – ‘The Wind That Cried The World’ is the best thing I have heard from the band. Previously, The Phantom Band were hit and miss for me, but Rick Redbeard’s solo release captured my heart. This track is huge and with a huge gap left by LCD Soundsystem, I sincerely believe that The Phantom Band could help heal some of that heartbreak.
Live dates have also been announced:
Tue 3 Jun 2014 Glasgow The Art School
Wed 4 Jun 2014 London Hoxton Bar & Grill
Thu 5 Jun 2014 Manchester The Deaf Institute
Fri 6 Jun 2014 Aberdeen The Tunnels
The tracklisting for the album has also been revealed:
1. The Wind That Cried The World
3. Doom Patrol
5. (Invisible) Friends
7. No Shoes Blues
8. Women Of Ghent
It is easy for us bloggers to sit and listen to songs and say that are great, but when they make it onto your personal audio players, that is when it all becomes that bit special.
