Phoenix have announced their first live performance in over two years.

The French rockers, who are reportedly set to release a new album later this year, will play Rock am Ring and Rock im Park festivals in Germany, which takes place across two cities, Nürburgring and Nürnberg from July 7-9, Consequence of Sound reports. Other acts confirmed for the bill include Green Day, The Killers and The Prodigy.

According to Rolling Stone, the band are set to follow up their 2009 album 'Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix' in April 2013 after Daniel Glass – who is head of the band's record label Glassnote Records mentioned the release date when addressing an event for Spotify at the end of last year (December 6).

Glass is reported to have mentioned that he had just spoken to the band on the phone and that they had finished the album at a Paris studio.

Phoenix have been working on their fifth album since 2011. While no official announcement has been made yet, the band's website features artwork with the title 'TPC' under the header 'album in progress'.

The French alt-rockers released their debut album 'United' in 2000. This was followed up with 'Alphabetical' in 2004, 'It's Never Been Like That' in 2006, and 2009's 'Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix', which featured the tracks 'Lisztomania' and '1901'.
