Phoenix added to Portugal’s NOS Alive Fest line-up

PanARMENIAN.Net - Phoenix have been added to the NOS Alive line-up, NME reports.

The French band, who last released an album – ‘Bankrupt!’, their fifth LP – back in 2013, will return to the festival circuit in the summer for their first live dates in nearly three years. They have already confirmed slots at Bilbao BBK Festival and The Governors Ball, the later of which is held in New York City.

Set to play the Nos Stage on the opening day of the Portuguese festival (July 6), Phoenix join the likes of Foo Fighters, The xx and The Weeknd in heading up the NOS Alive bill for its 2017 event.

NOS Alive will run from July 6-8.

Last year’s edition of the Portuguese festival saw performances from Radiohead, Arcade Fire, Pixies, Chemical Brothers, Biffy Clyro, Wolf Alice and many more.

Phoenix’s return to the stage was preceded by speculation back in November that they would be releasing new music. The group’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram profile pictures were changed to an image of SMPTE colour bars, commonly used as a test pattern on televisions – it was the first update to their social channels in a year, and was seen as an indication that the band were readying themselves for the next chapter of their career.
