Phoenix's New Album Title Might Give You a Seizure

The Parisian boys' much-anticipated LP, called 'Bankrupt,' is set to drop in April

The anticipation for Phoenix's new album is so fervent that it might give fans a seizure. Blame the Paris band, though, who announced the upcoming LP's title, Bankrupt!, with a turbo-flashing, brain-dizzying website video post today. But, hey, don't say you weren't warned...

The band's Facebook page lit up today with the above image, along with a link to their website and this peculiar text, "photosensitive epilepsy warning." Good call, guys, because click over the band's site and a video flashes the words "PHOENIX BANKRUPT!" at warp speed. At least there's a comforting soundtrack of what sounds like new Phoenix music. 

So, while you blink repeatedly, rubbing your eyes to rid of those black and white splotches in your field of view, rest assured: Bankrupt!, the much-anticipated follow-up to 2010's Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, drops sometime this April. 

Who needs eyes when you have ears, right!?

August 29: Little Orphan Ed?

The "Don't" singer, Ed Sheeran, makes a special appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" as the lovable orphan, Annie. Donning the famous red dress, and the equally famous red hair, we think Sheeran would make a great understudy. The best part though? His little dog friend, Sandy on that skateboard.
