Features: Phish is Back with Joy [NPR]

Hardcore Phish fans often say that you haven’t experienced Phish until you’ve seen the band live.

“I have to agree with that statement,” Anastasio says, laughing. “Not that I’m trying to promote a record.

“It’s interesting,” he adds, “because when we’re in the studio making a record, I already know that most of the fans aren’t really going to think much of it. I don’t necessarily worry that I’m going to please them, because what they want is the live show — they don’t really want this album. So many previous albums we’ve released have come out, and the hardcore fan base doesn’t really embrace it.”
