It looks like Phish has followed up their summer tour with some time in the recording studio, now confirmed with three different clips that have surfaced on social media in the past few weeks.
The band hasn’t put out a full LP since 2016’s Big Boat, although they’ve released a ton of new music since in the form of their fake alter-ego band Kasvot Växt debuted on Halloween 2018 and the emotional and soulful Ghosts of the Forest project debuting in 2019.
Trey Anastasio and Jon Fishman finished an entire suite of songs as Ghosts of the Forest (20+ in total), toured this April, and then they all helped finish off the Between Me and My Mind documentary. So they’ve never NOT been busy.
As for these social media clips, First Mike Gordon posted a clip of drummer Jon Fishman working out of a drumbeat in the studio, something new and definitely a groove we’ve never heard before.
Then shortly after, Trey Anastasio posted a video showing him and Fishman laying down a super rad groove together
For the third clip, Mike Gordon’s just posted a third clip showing another Fishman groove we’ve never heard before.
What could this all mean? Could we be seeing new songs debut live for the radio audience at the band’s upcoming show at The Met in Philadelphia which will be broadcast live on SiriusXM.
