Diverse rock crew FONZY & COMPANY will unleash their supremely captivating new EP, Touché, on Friday 17th June. The intriguing quintet have also just delivered their intoxicating brand-new single and video, The Kids Stay Home – https://youtu.be/uOMSrWn8GVc .
Residing in Bristol, but with roots stemming from London, Yeovil, Wales, and Scotland, FONZY & COMPANY channel a varied assortment of hearty influences ranging from Jimmy Eat World, Fleetwood Mac, Green Day, and The Pixies, through to Rush and the Gin Blossoms. Although initially formed in 2019 as a solo recording project for vocalist and guitarist Fonzy Armour, the quality of the material lent itself to a far more expansive approach. Long-time friends Olivia Jury (Vocals) and Sam Bennett (Drums / Percussion) were instantly drawn to the tracks that Fonzy had written and they wanted to collaborate. Soon after, the EP Last Birth was released, followed by the band’s next EP, Is It Me? Both EPs garnered powerful critical acclaim, and singles from the releases went on to amass over 1500 worldwide radio plays. Additional members came and went as time went on, until 2021 when Fonzy drafted in permanent members Lauren Hannah (lead guitar and vocals) and Sam Lane (bass) to stabilise and broaden the group’s capacious sound.
FONZY & COMPANY will now deliver their absorbing third EP, Touché. The record was produced by Innersound Audio (Asking Alexandria, Glamour of the Kill, Skarlett Riot), and it’s a release that’s briming with immersing cuts of Punk, Indie, and Alternative Rock. The EP is the band’s finest work to date – it’s an engulfing rollercoaster of a journey that is timelessly engaging.
With an emerging live reputation, FONZY & COMPANY will be taking the EP on the road. For show tickets and full details, hit up the band’s socials.
