Phish has released another track from their forthcoming album, Fuego, this time via Rolling Stone. “The Line” was definitely one of the memorable moments during the Wingsuit Halloween set and the studio version slows things down a few BPM’s and focuses on the song’s story as the main element.
Rock & roll is about busting boundaries and pushing the limits, but on Phish’s new song “The Line” (off their June 24th album Fuego), guitarist Trey Anastasio is singing about a very different kind of line: the free-throw line. When the band debuted the track on Halloween, Anastasio explained the song was “Dedicated with much love to the incredible Darius Washington, Jr.” because it’s “about his experience when he missed those two free throws at the end of the Final Four Michigan State game. We love him, and we can relate.”
