FOXY, a melodic punk band celebrating its 20thanniversary, today announces a pair of new EPs and fall dates for its European “Oh Bondage!” tour. This will mark the fifth major European tour on which the band has embarked. Dates begin September 20 in Prague, Czech Republic. A week prior to the tour, FOXY releases the X-Ray Spex Tribute and Can’t Stop Us EPs on September 13. Both titles are available for pre-order HERE. The current lineup of FOXY comprises vocalist/guitarist Lisa Parker-Meredith (4-Gazm), guitarist/vocalist Greg Antista (Greg Antista & The Lonely Streets, Joyride), bassist Stu West (The Damned, English Dogs), and drummer Richie Mendez (The Pushers). Formed by Parker-Meredith and Antista in Fullerton, CA, in 1999, FOXY originally included longtime Social Distortion bassist John Maurer. Maurer appears on the band’s self-titled 1999 debut EP and he produced the band’s sole album, 2001’s Stay Foxy Por Vida. After recording and touring consistently from 1999-2002, FOXY went on hiatus. For the next 15 years, Parker-Meredith focused on raising a family with her husband Glen Meredith of the band Violet Rex. FOXY initially reconvened in 2017 to provide support for a 40thanniversary concert date for fellow Southern California punk band X. FOXY was so thrilled to see that the old chemistry was intact that they booked dates for a 2018 European tour and recorded a second EP, Can’t Stop Us. “I’d say we’re as relevant now as we were 15 years ago,” says Parker-Meredith. “Perhaps even more so because more women are part of the scene now, and the men are closer to being on the same page as well. The men I surround myself with in music and life have tons of admiration and respect for women. Together we are stronger, together we make a difference. The bottom line with this band is that FOXY is family. And the people we play for are part of that family. That’s the message we carry across the globe to every show we play, whether it’s to 30 people or 3,000.”
