The inimitable American sextet Foxy Shazam have announced the international release of their self titled album on Sire Records for October 11th.
The album, Foxy Shazam marks the Cincinnati bands major label debut and is produced by John Feldman. The band will release the lead single, their first in the UK, Oh Lord on September 27th.
Foxy Shazam gave UK fans a glimpse of their fantastic live show at the Reading and Leeds Music Festival this summer as well as three London shows, including support for Lost Prophets and Motion City Soundtrack. They were support for Hole on an earlier trip to the UK this year.
Citing influences as varied as Marvin Gaye, Queen, The Stooges, Elton John and “Born To Run”-era Bruce Springsteen, Foxy Shazam have been creating unique, genre-defying music since they formed in 2004. From the anthemic “Unstoppable” to doo wop power ballad “Bye Bye Symphony” , the swooning “Connect Me,” and Rob Cavallo produced, Justin Hawkins featuring “Count Me Out”, Foxy Shazam is an amalgam of blues, soul, and brash pop bound by a no holds barred punk-rock aesthetic.
