The new Broadway musical Hands On A Hard Body officially opens tonight after weeks of previews. To promote the premiere, HoaHB’s creative team of Trey Anastasio, Amanda Green and Doug Wright visited MSNBC’s Morning Joe. While most of the discussion focused on the musical, John Heilemann asked a question that many Phish fans have pondered – when will Phish start recording a new album?

Anastasio’s off-the-cuff response was “tomorrow.” In many interviews about the musical Trey has talked about how much work he put into Hands On A Hard Body throughout the multiple year process that led to tonight’s opening. Even as the musical was in previews, both Anastasio and Green have worked hard getting the song order down and have even added a tune in recent weeks. Now that the musical is set, it appears Anastasio is ready to turn his focus back on to Phish.

Whether he was being flip in saying “tomorrow” isn’t known, but it does appear the quartet will enter the studio shortly. We’re hopeful that Phish will have plenty of new material by the time they kick off their summer tour on July 3rd. Watch the entire interview…

    Are you serious MSNBC? Way to make yourselves look like complete assholes. How is Morning Joe even on the air anymore? The guy is bag of fucking wrenches.

    Trey sounded like the most intelligent person on the stage. He certainly sounded much more well spoken than the two hosts. They had no idea what to say when he brought up that jazz was used in musical theater in the past.

    Felt a bit bad for Trey doing this show that I bought a $49 (really $60) to see this thing next week. Happy to support Trey. Weird how this interview ended up all about Trey. Totally agree that Trey was the most intelligent guy in the room, didn’t expect much from the hosts, but Green and Wright, oh man. Plus you can tell Trey hasn’t yet fully developed standard promotional interview replies, he always willing to engage in a discussion.

    Have to agree with Eric, the pharmaceuticals comment (especially, right of the bat) was a little cringe inducing.

    Good thing the camera cut away before Trey got up revealing a burrito stuck to his ass.
