As most of you may have noticed, we’ve been in a bit of a hibernation. We’re normally very active in our show scheduling and try to give everyone in the MPLS area a chance to see us at least once a month. This has not been the case for the past few months. We’re happy to announce that we will be direct support for our good friends The Modern Era at their EP release show. The show is at the Amsterdam in St. Paul, MN. Check out the Facebook event and RSVP for more details: https://www.facebook.com/events/1389981091247289/
While we’ve been away, we took some time to slow down and come to some conclusions about the future of the band and the direction we see ourselves going. That being said, new music is in the works. Unfortunately Ketan and Dan will not be part of the endeavor. Both of them have their own personal reasons for the departure. We are fortunate to all be on good terms. This show at the Amsterdam will be their last performance with the Phoenix Philosophy. We hope that you’ll be there to celebrate the end of an era with us.
Jesse and I have been working on getting new material to be released in early 2014. We have been spending the last few months writing and trying to get something ready to release to you as soon as possible. I’m thankful to have shared the stage with Dan and Ketan over the last 3 years and I wish them the best with their affairs from here. This band has seen it’s fair share of member additions and losses. I think it will only serve justice to the idea of the Phoenix Philosophy to take this opportunity to rise from the ashes and start something new.
See you all on 12/27.
