During Phish’s second Dinner and a Move broadcast the band offered a surprise check-in via webcam and announced they would share a brand new studio album – Sigma Oasis – on Wednesday, April 1 (April Fools Day).
According to the band – they went into the studio last November and had been “working on it steadily ever since.”
The title comes from a newer Phish composition, which they debuted on Dec. 8, 2019 in North Charleston, SC and later reprised on Feb. 21, 2020 in Mexico.
The Sigma Oasis listening party will take place on LivePhish.com, SiriusXM and Phish’s social media channels at 9 p.m. ET on Wednesday, April 1.
“We hope that all of you will be joining us… We’re really proud of it,” keyboardist Page McConnell commented, adding that the album cover was shot by photographer Rene Huemer.
“We’re excited about the whole package… We miss you and we hope you are all in your own homes taking care of yourselves,” McConnell added.
“And in the meantime we have a new album to drop on you,” drummer Jon Fishman grinned.
