Your favorite French indie-rock band is set to make its second Saturday Night Live appearance. As they say in French, hourra!
The last time Phoenix played SNL, back in 2009, they treated viewers to three songs — a rare deviation from the show’s typical two-performance format.
Funny story, though — they definitely didn’t want to do it. EW recently sat down for drinks with the band, whose fifth album Bankrupt! is due April 23, to chat about their memorable SNL appearance, among other things. (You can read the full interview in the current issue of Entertainment Weekly, available on stands now.)
Read on to see what the band — Thomas Mars, Deck D’Arcy, and brothers Laurent Brancowitz and Christian Mazzalai — had to say.
