Phosphorescent Update  

Posted at 10:25 am

Phosphorescent Aw Come Aw Wry

Phosphorescent frontman Matthew Houck has been touring the world, playing late night TV, and selling thousands of records. It’s a wildly exciting time for Phossy.

Along with a full download of the album, Houck and Misra decided to include live recordings with Phos’ Record Store Day reissue download of Aw Come Aw Wry. This was before things started to become insanely busy for the band (he’s opening for Robert Plant… Oh, Holy Night!)

Phos’ full album is included with the download card on the RSD reissue, however, understandably, Matthew had a hard time gathering the live recordings and wasn’t able to get them in on time. In addition, he’s reassembling his studio and says “he hasn’t forgotten.” So, they’ll be here. Thanks for your understanding, your patience and your support of both Phos and Misra. We can’t do this without you.

PHOSPHORESCENT • Record Store Day Title • Live Recordings

Phosphorescent Aw Come Aw Wry

Thank you so much for supporting independent music! We can’t do this without you.

As it is, Matthew Houck — the wonderful &  talented frontman for Phosphorescent — got caught up in the band’s recent swarm of road dates and was unable to get the special live recordings to Misra in time for Record Store Day. The live recordings were going to be on the download card alongside a full-download of the album. We are truly sorry about the setback and both Matthew and Misra plan to remedy the situation. Please check back soon.

Again, we are very sorry about this situation and working on a remedy now. Thanks so much for your support of Phossy and Misra! It means so much to us all.
