Phantogram To Tour Before Album

Phantogram will be giving fans a taste of the group’s new album due out this winter when the New York duo returns to the road for a fall journey beginning in the Buckeye State in early October.

Of course, you still have a few opportunities to see the group named for a type of optical illusion before the tour begins.  Phantogram will play the X-Fest in Calgary, Alberta, Aug. 31, gig at the Sonic Boom Fest in Edmonton, Alberta, Sept. 1 and appear with M83 at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl Sept. 22.

Meanwhile, the band has prepared this nifty video giving you a look behind the curtain at a Phantogram recording session.
