Britny Fox Releases New Studio Album
Springhead Motorshark Through Spitfire Records On July 29, 2003
Britny Fox roared out of Philadelphia with their hugely successful, self-titled debut album in 1988. Britny Fox was certified gold (500,000 copies), and sold nearly a million copies on the strength of the videos for "Long Way To Love" and "Girlschool," along with major tours with Poison, Ratt, and Joan Jett. Next came Boys In Heat in 1989, and then new lead singer Tommy Paris joined for Bite Down Hard in 1991. After years of extensive touring the band decided to take a break in 1992. Although not by design, the hiatus lasted through 1999.
Britny Fox reunited in 2000 to sign with Spitfire Records and record their first live album Long Way To LIVE! Released in 2001, the album got rave reviews and sparked new interest in the band, along with a top 20 showing in VH-1's "Top 40 Hair Bands of All Time" countdown.
In 2002 Sony/Legacy released The Best of Britny Fox as part of the Metal Masters series (along with Quiet Riot, Europe, and Accept). Which brings us to 2003. The new album Springhead Motorshark -- which will be released by Spitfire on July 29, 2003 -- is proof that the band has never given into the latest trends or tried to jump on any bandwagon. Although they have reached a new plateau musically they have stayed true to what they are, and believe the songs on this CD will speak for themselves.
From the heavy as balls "Pain" to the folk influenced "Is It Real?" this album has all of the heavy elements of the past, while also breaking new ground musically for the band.
Produced by Tommy Paris and Michael Kelly Smith, this album is proof that there is a lot more to Britny Fox than anyone has ever given them credit for. That being said, get ready…
Britny Fox is: Tommy Paris - lead vocals, guitar, keyboards; Michael Kelly Smith - lead and rhythm guitar, backing vocals; Billy Childs - bass, backing vocals; Johnny Dee - drums, backing vocals.
Track listing: "Pain," "Freaktown," "T.L.U.C. (For You)," "L A," "Springhead Motorshark," "Is It Real?," "Coup D'etat," "Far Enough," "Lonely Ones," "Memorial" and "Sri Lanka."
