FOXY SHAZAM OUT NOW ON NATIONWIDE HEADLINE TOUR

The inimitable Foxy Shazam has, by all accounts, killed it at SXSW. Their raucous performances at SPIN’s annual party and the Crush Mgmt showcase on Friday, March 19th received rave reviews all around:

“Mustachioed frontman Eric Nally…pranced, howled and preened…as his bandmates tagged along with joyful, chaotic abandon. The rapt before-lunch crowd looked fully converted and ready to testify to the primal, inordinately tight-pantsed force of Foxy.” – Entertainment Weekly

“Foxy Shazam brought the ruckus…with a show that had most people converted by song three. The band is a glam-pop face-melter, seemingly coming out of leftfield.” – Houston Press

“Soulful, groove-laden punk.” – American Songwriter

“By the time Nally literally climbed over the back of the stage and disappeared, I didn’t see a face in the place that didn’t have a big, silly grin plastered on it.” – Metromix

“Definitely a show you need to see” – Metro

Foxy previewed songs from their upcoming self-titled release, due out on Sire Records April 13th. Produced by John Feldmann, Foxy Shazam is the Cincinnati, OH band’s major label debut. It is currently available for presale at www.foxyshazam.com.

To support the album, Foxy Shazam is taking their good times mobile with a nationwide headlining tour that runs through April 27th. Stops in New York and Los Angeles will give fans a chance to experience their notoriously rambunctious live show and genre-defying songs, which SPIN (who selected them as one of their 10 to Watch in 2010) said “glitter like diamonds and kick like mules.”

Foxy Shazam’s debut single “Unstoppable” was featured on the broadcast of the 44th annual Superbowl, and the track is currently available for sale exclusively on iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/unstoppable-single/id351170337.
