Forming in the late '90s in Paris, France, as a garage band of sorts playing in vocalist Thomas Mars' garage, Phoenix would eventually rise to the top of the musical food chain with their eclectic rock blend joined by synthesizers. But before they became the famous band that they are, Phoenix got its start playing cover songs in bars around France. It was years later that they finally took on the name Phoenix and began releasing their first single on a limited pressing. After being signed, they released their debut album Unitedin 2000 which touted singles "If I Ever Feel Better", "Too Young" and others. This was a solid first entry and earned them prominent spots on many tours with bands such as "Air", and released their second album Alphabetical in 2004. This brought the group to new heights, leading them to release It's Never Been Like That in 2006. These albums were all great but were just the beginning of what would be their most popular release, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, which took Phoenix to the top of the electro rock pop group. They have since released their sixth album, Bankrupt! to critical acclaim in 2013. They played a rare London show on the day that Bankrupt! arrived. The show was hosted at Shepherd's Bush Empire. Phoenix made the show memorable when Mars went into the crowd and sang while submersed in the audience for a large chunk of the show. He then scaled up the cables to the first-level balcony and made his way back to the stage by "crowd-surfing." That same year, Phoenix was featured on American TV, performing on Saturday Night Live and Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Phoenix's studio albums include: United (2000); Alphabetical (2004); It's Never Been Like That (2006); Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix (2009); and Bankrupt! (2013).
Being a popular band from Paris, France definitely has it's perks, such as being able to collaborate with artists such as Daft Punk, quite possibly one of the biggest electronic bands to ever emerge onto the music scene. Not too many artists get the chance to work with Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, the duo that makes up Daft Punk, but Phoenix has had the pleasure on multiple occasions. For their debut album Phoenix had Thomas Bangalter featured on one of the tracks, and later at a show in New York in 2010 they were joined on stage by the robotic duo to great acclaim. It's also interesting to note that one of the members of Phoenix, Laurent Brancowitz, joined up on guitar, that he was actually a part of a short-lived group known as "Darlin'", of which he was joined by both Thomas and Guy-Manuel not too long before they went off to form Daft Punk.
