Brisbane’s most loved Celtic Punk Rockers, Fox n Firkin are back with a new EP, set for release November 1 on Folk Till Ya Punk Records via MGM.
‘Hey Ho! We’re Fox n Firkin’ is the fourth release after previous EP’s ‘To Hell and Back’ (2013), ‘Roppongi’ (2014) and their album ‘No Vacancy’ (2016).
To celebrate the upcoming release, the guys have given us a special glimpse into the EP. If you’ve caught a recent live show, you may have heard their cover of The Cranberries Zombie. Their punked up version gives the song a whole new light and is a unique tribute to the well known and much loved song. The first official single release is set to come later.
Drummer, Robbie Fraser talks about Zombie:
“We just can’t stop ourselves! We end up wasting half of our rehearsals blasting out ridiculous covers that don’t make sense and then before you know it, we are in the studio recording them! This is the 3rd Fox n Firkin record with a cover on it. Zombie is a great song but I’m sure we can all agree it has been butchered many times over. I’m so happy to finally have the opportunity to butcher it ourselves!”
Robbie comments on the EP:
“The new EP is kind of a tribute to ourselves, giving ourselves a pat on the back for making it this far and not killing each other.”
