Phoenix Calling



With the release of the much vaunted and highly acclaimed Forget Your Ghosts, debut album in March of 2015, Cambridgeshire alt-rockers Phoenix Calling caused quite a stir amongst the mainstream 'heavy hitters' like Kerrang and Scuzz TV.

No surprises then that they're releasing Hold On To Glory, a stand-out track from Forget Your Ghosts, as a single to kick off 2016. 

Its burgeoning, frenzied guitar and percussion overlaid with a driving vocal will see it receive no small amount of radio plays including, of course, Ralph's Radio KC Indie Show. 




Phoenix Calling supported Young Guns on their recent UK tour and have also shared the stage with Mallory Knox and Nothing But Thieves as well as headlining a number of regional festivals.

They are regular contributors to BBC Radio Cambridgeshire. The band did a mini tour of Poland in September 2015 playing some top venues in Warsaw and Krakow and were also featured on Polish national Anty Radio.




Their new video for Hold On To Glory will be revealed soon. It features boxer Tommy Martin who is fighting for the Commonwealth Light Welterweight belt on January 30th at the Copper Box Arena. They hope Sky Sports will be playing the video at the event.

In the meantime, here's an acoustic set Phoenix Calling did for garycool.com on YouTube last year.
