In advance of their upcoming album — The Heart Behead You, which drops Feb. 14 — Cincinnati Rockers Foxy Shazam have just released a new music video.
"Dancing With My Demons" hit YouTube at 3 a.m. Jan. 18. The video was filmed at Wilder, Kentucky honky tonk Bobby Mackey's. In it, frontman Eric Nally makes his way through the reportedly haunted bar, confronting himself, dressed as multiple characters; riding the iconic mechanical bull; and taking the stage in an all-red outfit, complete with cowboy hat.
The release comes just about a month away from Foxy Shazam's show at the Andrew J Brady Music Center on Feb. 12.
The band had to postpone its original sold-out show in April 2020 at the Taft Theatre — their first after a six-year hiatus — due to the pandemic. The show was rescheduled for January 2021, but was eventually canceled.
Tickets for the Feb. 12 concert are still available at bradymusiccenter.com.
In October 2014, during the touring cycle for 2014's Gonzo (their first self-released effort since their 2005 debut, after stints on Sire and IRS), Foxy Shazam announced that it was canceling all of its scheduled tour dates. The band said the split would be for "an unknown amount of time" as the members spend some time with their families and other artistic endeavors.
"We truly believe there is a future for Foxy Shazam, that our best art is yet to come," the message continued. "We don't know how long this will take but we plan on someday returning more powerful than ever."
They began teasing their return in early 2020.
