Tin Foil Phoenix hail from Winnipeg, Canada. The band formed from the ashes of a previous incarnation under the moniker of Sonic Bloom with core members Michael Allen Zirk and Steven Kray. In 2001, they released Hurry, an independent seven-song EP. Its first single, Neopolitan, got a great amount of airplay on Canadian radio. The song soon caught the music industry’s attention and they released their debut album in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.
Their first full-length album, Living In The Shadow Of The Bat, was released in 2004.
