Gargantuan French outfit Phoenix have spent the last few weeks flitting between their native France and the UK in an Anglo-Francais tour - including two dates at Brixton Academy in London.

We sent our photographer Tom Griffiths to spend some time with them during the second Brixton show where he took these stunning photos, capturing them backstage before frontman Thomas Mars spent some quality time with his fans in the crowd during the gig itself. Read our interview with the fourpiece that took place just after the release of 2013's Bankrupt! LP, which is out now on Loyaute / Glassnote / Atlantic Records UK.
