Britny Fox Returning To The Studio After Long Hiatus

Britny Fox Returning To The Studio After Long Hiatus

April 27, 2015

Britny Fox has returned from a long hiatus fully charged and ready to rock! The band is currently writing for a new album, and plan to book and perform select dates only at this time.

In late 2014, bassist Billy Childs reunited with former manager/tour manager Wayne “Doobie” Dubay. Childs and Doobie then reteamed with vocalist/rhythm guitarist Tommy Paris and original drummer Johnny Dee. Due to commitments, original lead guitarist Michael Kelly Smith has been replaced by guitarist Chris Sanders.

“How can I tell you how great it is to be back with these guys, and working on a new album? It is fantastic,” explains Billy Childs. “Johnny and I basically grew up in this business together and the tightness we have had over the years as a rhythm section is still there — Tommy Paris hasn’t lost a step, lyrically or vocally. Chris is a breath of fresh air for the band, and adds elements that were never there before, but very much in line with us as we prepare to bite down even harder this time around. Doobie is the guy that pulled us all together and said, “get your heads out of your asses and make another Bite Down Hard”. He’s pretty big, so best just to agree with him! For other reasons as well though, we all agreed it was time.”

The band is currently in the studio writing and recording a follow up to the ‘Bite Down Hard’ album [obviously wanting to forget about ‘Springhead Motorshark’]. This musical jewel is a definite game changer on the classic Britny Fox sound that originally exploded in 1988. ‘Bite Down Hard’ was a much harder rock tone, featuring Zakk Wylde and Poison drummer Rikki Rocket — Rocket performed a percussion solo with Johnny Dee on the “Midnight Moses” track and Wylde played the lead guitar outro on “Six Guns Loaded”.

“It’s awesome playing with Billy and Johnny again — Chris fits right in perfectly with us freaks,” exclaims Tommy Paris. “The new songs are ass kicking, fun, heavy rock! It’s a great time hanging out with Doobie, writing new tunes and putting a new show together! Can’t wait to get back out on stage!”

Britny Fox has sold close to 2 million albums worldwide behind singles such as “Girlschool” and “Long Way To Love”.
