It's been over five years since Phosphorescent released their excellent album Muchacho, and four years since they have been to Europe to play. This is a damn shame because they are one of the most enjoyable live bands on the planet.

Thankfully this extended absence is coming to an end later this year, as Matthew Houck and his band will be returning to Europe to play a headline tour, including a stop at London's Shepherd's Bush Empire. There's no news about new music yet, but it is sure to be coming very soon, and this is a great opportunity to hear it fresh - along with some old faves.
