Inimitable rock ‘n’ soul sextet Foxy Shazam have announced the international release date of their self-titled Sire Records album for October 11th. Produced by John Feldmann, Foxy Shazam is the Cincinnati, OH band’s major label debut. The album is preceded by the release of the band’s first UK single, the infectious ‘Oh Lord’ on September 27.
Foxy Shazam recently brought their good times mobile to the UK giving fans a chance to experience their notoriously rambunctious live show. The band performed at the Reading/Leeds Festival as well as playing three London shows – including support slots for Lostprophets and Motion City Soundtrack. This follows the band’s previous UK trip supporting Hole earlier in 2010.
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.
