Phoenix: "Lisztomania", SNL Tonight

Things are starting to heat up in the Phoenix camp as the band ramps up to the release of their new record Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. For one, the next single, "Lisztomania" has made it's way to the interwebs, and is firmly proving that "1901" was not a fluke in it's awesomeness. The band is currently filming an official video for the tune, but some kind soul has created an 80's movie mashup that you can watch above, if only to hear the new tune. That being said, the vid is pretty awesome as well.

On top of the new tunage, the band is also all set to make an appearance on Saturday Night Live this evening. While we recommend you catch it on TV (this stuff always looks better on the big screen), we can tell you that we'll be digging the vids up ASAP, so don't stress too much. While it's just a guess, we're willing to wager that tonight's tunes will be "1901" and "Lisztomania". That being said, we really wouldn't mind hearing something a bit older as well. No, we wouldn't mind one bit.

In the meantime, if you're bored and half as obsessed with the band as we are, we highly recommend their blog. It's fantastic.
