Phosphorescent Announces Spring 2013 World Tour And New Album 'Muchacho' Released On March 18th 2013

Ahead of his one-off St Pancras Old Church show tonight, Phosphorescent is excited to announce a worldwide spring tour in support of their upcoming album 'Muchacho'. Starting with a quick jaunt to SXSW, the tour kicks into full swing March 25th in Philadelphia, weaving it's way across the country for a month before wrapping with a hometown show at NYC's famed Bowery Ballroom. The band, a revamped 5 piece led by Matthew Houck, will then hop across the pond for a string of UK and European shows in May including London's Village Underground on the 15th May. Full details of all the dates are below. 

'Muchacho' will be released in the UK 18th March on Dead Oceans. 'Song For Zula', the first track revealed from 'Muchacho' is heartbreaking and revelatory, sonically rich and innovative. It's a giant step forward for an artist whose career has grown from doing the hard work and honing his craft album to album, tour to tour. 

The new album is already described as 'a clear departure from the honky-tonk classic rock of 2010's Here's To Taking It Easy, and an assemblage of underwater hymns redolent of both record's spare, sometimes psychedelic predecessor, 2007's Pride.'
