foxy-brown

Oh, what a glorious day to be alive!

After being unusually quiet for the first several months of 2014, Foxy Shazam shocked fans around the world this afternoon with the surprise release of a new, completely free album titled Gonzo. You can stream the album below and grab a download off Bandcamp. Vinyl pre-orders are available now.

Gonzo is the first independent release from Foxy Shazam in five years. It was self-produced and recorded with famed engineer Steve Albini. Reflecting on working with Albini, singer Eric Nally states, “He’s the master of recording what you’re good at. [The album] was written in a room, recorded in a room, all together. It was a shared experience, and an easier process, and things really started to come out. It was a very organic experience, and it shows. And I can read [GONZO] like a book, like a cohesive piece of art. It’s by far the most personal album to me.”

In addition to releasing Gonzo, Foxy Shazam have announced plans to embark on a Summer headlining tour beginning May 27. Dates for that run can be found at the end of this post.
