YOUNG FOX RELEASES ‘PREDECESSORS’ EP TODAY!

Posted in Artist Watch, New Music, News, Releases with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 6, 2014 by Randy

Pittsburgh’s rising rock band Young Fox has released their new EP, Predecessors, today via Spartan Records. The release is currently available digitally at iTunes and from Spartan Records at http://spr.tn/youngfox.

Formed in 2012, Young Fox came together over drinks in a neighborhood pub in Pittsburgh. Martin Lunn (bassist), who’s also in revered metal band Zao, Luke Cypher (vocals/guitar/keys), who happens to share his time as the head chef at Piccolo Forno in Pittsburgh, and Chris Lehberger (drums) began writing, rehearsing and recording and eventually added Brian Schultz (guitar) to the mix, rounding out the four-piece band.
The group was fixated on honing their craft and songwriting on the new record, Predecessors, until they were completely satisfied. The results are shockingly good too.
Young Fox’s music is dynamic and heartfelt. From the record’s memorable first track “Single Phase” to the last notes of “Define The End,” Young Fox leaves it all on record. Tracks like “The Answer” and “Diet of Worms” are intense and methodical and showcase extraordinary talents from a new band that will be around for years to come.

James LaBrie checked in to comment about the upcoming EP release as follows:

“Hey Everyone! Matt, Marco, Peter, Ray and yours truly are very pleased to release this digital EP. It will show some of the songs with alternate mixes as well as letting you hear Matt’s exceptional voice with some of the songs in their demo versions. We also had 3 of the songs mixed in dub step stylings to give them a somewhat interesting flavour and twist. Hope you all enjoy this release, I personally think it is very cool. All the best in the New Year and see you out there….”
