, one of the few French bands to have broken through to an international audience, have confirmed that a new album is in the pipeline and that live dates are imminent.
They've confirmed that their next album, due to be released in a few months, will be entitled Bankrupt. A brief (and possibly epilepsy triggering) teaser has been posted on youtube, with a brief clip of music alongside some eye bothering visuals.
Their last album, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, was released in 2009 and established them as not only one of France's most important bands, but one of the most significant modern rock acts around anywhere.
It's also been announced that they will be playing at the 2013 Rock en Seine festival in August. The event also features System of a Down and Paul Kalkbrenner, the only two other acts who have been announced so far.
Passes for the Rock en Seine festival go on sale on January 22.
More details on Phoenix and on the Rock en Seine festival will no doubt emerge in the coming weeks and months.
