Phoenix to thrill Manila in August

Like a phoenix, everyone’s favorite Frenchmen are set to rise again in the Manila concert scene on Aug. 15 at the Kia Theater.

Wanderers got the exclusive dibs on this surprise announcement and now that the secret is out, so is their new single, “J-Boy” from their first LP since 2013, “Ti Amo.”

Despite the album creation coinciding with the series of unfortunate events in Paris, the “hint of darkness” it brought to the record gave it some depth.

The name alone (or paired with the fact that it was made in the City of Love) is enough assurance that everyone fell in love with it after being released on June 9.

Expect a thrilling live musical experience like no other—thanks to the quartet’s—Thomas Mars (vocals), Deck d’Arcy (bass), Christian Mazzalai (guitar) and Laurent Brancowitz (guitar)— spunky new visuals accompanied with a familiar yet equally intriguing sound.

And no, “J-Boy” is not a name, it stands for “Just Because of You”—play the song and discover why, and buy your ticket while you’re at it.
