The band, comprised of Alex Greenwald, Sam Farrar, Darren Robinson and Jeff Conrad also spend time away from Phantom Planet, and have continued to push the creative barriers outside the band. Pursuing satellite interests during times of hiatus, bassist Sam Farrar became a member of Maroon 5, singer Alex Greenwald was the musical director for Mark Ronson and The Business Intl & formed the band Phases, guitarist Darren Robinson divided his time touring with Miniature Tigers & creating Twin Terrors, drummer Jeff Conrad (who replaced founding member Jason Schwartzman) became a documentary editor and composer.
Now back together again after a 10yr break, the band makes their official return with BALISONG (produced by long-time collaborator, Tony Berg). Using this release as a launching pad in to 2019 and beyond, expect new music & touring through 2020. Phantom Planet is no longer missing and in the spot light once again.
