Their clever lyrics and catchy melodies see them straddle the line between tongue-in-cheek and effortlessly cool, and 25 years since they began they're still packing dancefloors the world over!

ABOUT PHOENIX

French indie-pop band Phoenix was formed in Versailles in 1997 and consists of Thomas Mars (lead vocals), Deck d'Arcy (bass/keyboards/backing vocals), Christian Mazzalai (guitar/backing vocals), and Laurent Brancowitz (guitar/keyboards/backing vocals).

CAREER

1990s: Formation and early years

In the 1990s, schoolfriends Thomas Mars, Deck d'Arcy, and Chris Mazzalai began playing together as a garage band at Mars’ house in the Paris suburbs. After leaving the band Darlin’ (which he had formed with Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo who later became the duo Daft Punk), Laurent Brancowitz, Mazzalai's older brother, joined the band. After two years, the band named itself Phoenix and released a 500-issue press of its debut single on its own label, Ghettoblaster. The single caught the attention of the Paris-based label Source Records who soon signed the band. During this time, Phoenix befriended their labelmates Air and acted as their backing band when they performed on UK television.

2000-2004: United, Alphabetical, and Live! Thirty Days Ago

In 1999, the band released the singles "Heatwave" and "Party Time," followed by "Too Young," which was released on May 22, 2000, alongside remixes by  Zoot Woman and Le Knight Club. The band's debut album, United, was released on 12 June 2000, featuring "Party Time," "Too Young," and a third single, "If I Ever Feel Better," which was released on January 22, 2001, and reached number 12 in France and number four in Italy. "Too Young" was included on the soundtrack Lost in Translation (which was directed by Mars' future wife, Sofia Coppola) and was also on the soundtrack for Shallow Hal.

In 2004, the band released the singles "Run Run Run" and "Everything Is Everything" from their second studio album Alphabetical, which was released on March 22, 2004. The album charted in six countries and reached the Top 10 in Norway.

To support the album's release, the band embarked on a 150-date tour across three continents and followed with the live album Live! Thirty Days Ago, which was released 30 days after the tour finished.

2005-2009: It’s Never Been Like That and Kitsuné Tabloid

The band spent the summer of 2005 in Berlin recording their third studio album and its lead single, "Long Distance Call," was released on May 8, 2006. The album itself, It’s Never Been Like That, was released on May 15 and charted at number 23 on the US Heatseekers Albums chart, as well as charting in several countries around the world. It was re-released in Mexico later that year as a tour edition, featuring four new tracks from the band’s show in Oslo.

On March 23, 2009, a compilation album was released via French electronic music record and fashion label Kitsuné that was curated by Phoenix.

2009-2011: Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix

In February 2009, the band released the track "1901" as a free download on their website and, due to its popularity, it was re-released as a retail single. On May 25, Phoenix released its third studio album, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, which charted at number 37 on the Billboard 200 and reached the top five on three other Billboard charts. "Lisztomania" and "Lasso" were released as the album’s second and third singles and the band appeared on several late-night TV shows in the US performing "1901," which had become a big hit.

In January 2010, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix won Best Alternative Music Album at the 2009 Grammy Awards. Following this, "1901" reached number one on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart. "1901" and "Lisztomania" were certified platinum and gold in the US, respectively and Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix was certified gold in the US, also appearing on the ‘Best of’ lists of several publications, including Rolling Stone.

That summer, Phoenix performed at several music festivals including the Austin City Limits Music Festival in Texas in 2009, Coachella Music Festival in Indio, California in 2010, the 2010 Bonnaroo Music Festival in Manchester, Tennessee, the Southside Festival, and Hurricane Festival in Germany, the 2010 Lollapalooza, the Mile High Music Festival, Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival in San Francisco, California, Rock Werchter 2010 in Belgium, and the 2010 Reading and Leeds Festivals. At their show at Madison Square Garden on October 20, 2010, Daft Punk made a special appearance.

The band’s tour in support of Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix was the subject of From a Mess to the Masses, a documentary by Antoine Wagner and Francisco Soriano.

2011-2015: Bankrupt!

 

On 16 January 2013, exactly one year after the announcement that the band had completed four songs for their upcoming studio album, the band announced the album’s title to be Bankrupt! And announced its release date to be April 22, 2013. The band released "Entertainment", the first single from the album, on February 18. They began their 2013 tour on March 28 and on April 22, the day of Bankrupt!’s release, they played a rare London show at Shepherd’s Bush Empire.

Bankrupt! debuted at number four on the Billboard 200 and for the rest of 2013, the band completed their world tour. That October, Phoenix co-headlined the Austin City Limits Music Festival alongside Kings of Leon, Wilco, and Depeche Mode.

In December 2015, Phoenix appeared in the Netflix special A Very Murray Christmas, directed by Mars' wife Sofia Coppola, where they performed a cover of The Beach Boys' "Alone on Christmas Day", with Bill Murray on backing vocals.

2016-2019: Ti Amo

On April 27, 2017, the band released the lead single from their next studio album, "J-Boy" (an acronym for "Just Because of You"). This was followed by the release of the title track, "Ti Amo", on 18 May 2017, and the single "Goodbye Soleil" on 2 June 2017. One week later, the album was released. The band performed residency shows in Paris, New York City, Los Angeles, Tokyo, and Mexico City titled, "A Very Speciale Night with Phoenix," as part of a world tour promoting the album.

2020-present: New Music

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut album, Phoenix released the book Liberté, Egalité, Phoenix! in early-2020. They released the single “Identical” in August 2020 for the motion picture On The Rocks. The single ended up topping the Billboard Adult Alternative Airplay chart that November. On May 27, 2022, the band announced the single "Alpha Zulu", which was released on June 1.
