Phantogram makes it ‘All A Mystery’ with New tour


After unveiling the first single, “All A Mystery,”  of their new chapter last week, critically-acclaimed alt duo Phantogram announces a string of headline shows in El Paso, Fargo, Sioux Falls, Des Moines, St Louis, Cleveland, and South Burlington, adding to an already powerful 27-date North American tour with fellow alternative heavyweights Kings of Leon across August, September and October. The new headline shows will go on sale Friday, June 7th at 10am local time here

Weaving together a hazy mix of synths, hypnotic guitars and beat-crushing drum machines, with mesmerizing vocals into a psychedelic sea of light, Phantogram’s Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter’s return “All A Mystery” is a triumph. Co-produced by GRAMMY-award winning producer John Hill (Portugal. The Man, Bleachers, Cage The Elephant, et al.), it’s a sensational return to form for the NY duo.


The single also launches Phantogram’s new partnership with Neon Gold Records, the celebrated indie label known for its long lineage of powerful alt pop artists from Charli XCX and HAIM to Tove Lo, MARINA and Christine and the Queens.

Phantogram adds:““All A Mystery” was a line that we used to sing when we first started writing songs for Phantogram. We would sing it and harmonize it together while working in the barn turned recording studio. Back then, it was “all a mystery” to us how we came together to become a band, and 14 years later, we are bewildered that we have been doing this for so long. This song touches on love, life, death and loss. It digs into memories, and the wonder of existence. And it examines the push and pull of time on this planet, and being able to share the experience of everything all at once as a mere grain of sand on an endless beach.”
