Alt-rockers PHOENIX CALLING have revealed their new band line-up, which welcomes the addition of vocalist Callum Von Wolfe Waterfield and lead guitarist Luke Reid. Founding member Jason Howard (bass) grew up playing in bands with Reid around the Cambridge circuit, and Von Wolfe joins PHOENIX CALLING after spending time fronting Jessie’s Ghost, a five-way harmony acoustic outfit. Touring drummer Luke Green will also step up as a full time member.
With a new line-up comes a change in PHOENIX CALLING’s sound, moving from softer rock to a grittier take on the genre, maintaining the sing-along qualities whilst including elements of post-hardcore.
To celebrate the band are streaming their new single ‘Fight’, check it out here:
Second founding member Dominic Greenwood (guitars/vocals) comments:
“It’s great to be back in the studio, playing live with some awesome musicians and making new noise – there’s exciting times to come. ‘Fight’ is the way forward for us and we cant wait to get an album out next year!”
PHOENIX CALLING will perform as the new line-up for the first time on Saturday 26th May as special guests to Brigade and Slaves To Gravity at London’s O2 Islington Academy.
With three new songs written, plans to tour at the end of the year and a full-length record due in Spring 2019, this is just the beginning for PHOENIX CALLING. Keep your eyes peeled for further announcements.
