[pullquote quote="I loved you then, I love you now baby. But this time it's the real thing." credit="from '(It's) Too Late Baby'"]Having spent the last three years as one of those “you’ve got to see it to believe it” bands, the outrageous [lastfm]Foxy Shazam[/lastfm] are ready to tear a huge hole in American rock ‘n roll with the release of their new album The Church of Rock and Roll. Risque lyrics, legendary on-stage antics, and a party-hard mentality are helping Foxy Shazam bring rock’s “cool” back – and not a moment too soon. Everyone who has experienced Foxy up close, from the bloggers to the radio programmers, are reporting back with excitement: “these guys are the real deal.”
Click through to sample the songs from The Church of Rock ‘n Roll and decide for yourself if the [lastfm]Queen[/lastfm] and the [lastfm]Rolling Stones[/lastfm] comparisons hold true.
[lastfm]Foxy Shazam[/lastfm] have been honing their craft, largely out on the road, since their formation in Cincinnati, Ohio in 2004. The comparisons to rock monsters like [lastfm]Queen[/lastfm] are inevitable, given the talents and caution-to-the-wind attitude of frontman Eric Sean Nally, who struts, cavorts and paces the stage like a veteran of the 1970s arena rock era. Nally’s bandmates are no slouches either, nimble enough to carry the guitar-and-brass groove of “Wasted Feelings” through to the stadium-sized wails of “(It’s) Too Late Baby” without missing a beat.
