Foxy Shazam in on the road with Panic at the Disco and Patrick Stump
Rocking out in Grand Rapids, MI on November 5th playing The Intersection!!
 

The rabble-rousing rockers, Foxy Shazam, who were lauded by USA Today for their “stadium-sized anthem” and praised by MTV for their “audacious glam-rock-meets-prog-pop,” are the first signing to the re-launched I.R.S. Records, a newly minted joint venture between Crush Management and EMI. The Cincinnati, Ohio-based sextet--Eric Nally (vocals), Loren Turner (guitar), Daisy (bass), Sky White (piano), Aaron McVeigh (drums) and Alex Nauth (horns)—released three albums to critical and fan acclaim. Their fourth, as yet untitled album, drops in January 2012 on IRS/EMI, and the band has seen major support in the past via multiple video game and TV synchs from EA Sports, Cartoon Network, ESPN, CW, Activision, NFL, American Idol and more.

Previous releases from Foxy Shazam are: 2008’s INTRODUCING; and 2010’s FOXY SHAZAM, and spawned the anthemic “Unstoppable.” “I Like It,” the first single from Foxy Shazam’s forthcoming I.R.S./EMI debut, furthers the band’s irrepressible mystique and solidifies their stellar vocals and musicianship. “I Like It” is currently premiering on Facebook.

Foxy Shazam's live show has earned the band raves for its over-the-top energy and star quality, most notably while touring 2009’s Lollapalooza, 2010’s Warped Tour, and opening for Hole and The Strokes. It’s no wonder their “soulful, groove-laden punk” (American Songwriter) helped the sextet win the Cincinnati Entertainment Award two consecutive years for "Best Rock Act." Or as MTV noted: “Foxy Shazam are here to put a little pomp and circumstance into your daily dose of rock ‘n’ roll... [They] make audacious glam-rock-meets-prog-pop-meets-musical-theater. ... Recalls everything from Elton John and The Stooges to T. Rex.””
