Phoenix Get Grammy Nomination For A Best Alternative Album

Capping off an incredible year, Phoenix has been nominated for their first-ever Grammy Award in the category of Best Alternative Album for their acclaimed 2009 release, "Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix" (Loyaute/Glassnote).

2009 has been a career-defining year for the band: armed with an arsenal of incredible songs, multiple television appearances under their belts, including a high voltage appearance on Saturday Night Live in April, significant radio airplay, key licenses and sold out shows across America, Phoenix has truly arrived. Propelled by lead singles "1901" and "Lisztomania," "Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix," which has sold over 200,000 copies in North America, is being heralded as one of the best albums of the year, and their Grammy nomination in the Best Alternative Album category solidifies their indelible mark on the music world today.

Phoenix's Grammy nomination is the first for new independent label Glassnote Records. "We are thrilled and honored that Phoenix is recognized with this Grammy nomination," says Glassnote President Daniel Glass. "We believe they made the best album of the year."

Phoenix are currently playing select shows across America.
