Roxy Blue Announces First New Album In Twenty Seven Years; Releases New Song “Silver Lining”

Memphis, Tennessee hard rockers Roxy Blue are back with their first album of new material in 27 years, after their now legendary debut album, “Want Some”, has become a classic of the late ‘80s/early ’90s hard rock scene. Original members Todd Poole (vocals), Josh Weil (bass), and Scotty Trammell (drums) are now joined by new guitarist Jeffrey Wade Caughron. (Original guitarist Sid “Boogie” Fletcher has left the music business for a successful career in dentistry.)

Roxy Blue’s self-titled album will be released August 9th via Frontiers Music Srl.

“‘Silver Lining’ was actually the last song written and recorded for the record. After recording the song, everything sounded great, but for some reason the hook of the song kept bothering me. The guys in the band suggested that I just write another hook . One night I was driving home from the studio and I accidentally pulled up the version that had no vocals on it and just started singing something completely different. I finished the new lyrics that night. The next day I went and recorded the new vocal about turning a negative into a positive,” says vocalist Todd Poole of how ‘Silver Lining’ came together.

Todd Poole on what fans can expect from the new album: “Roxy Blue fans can expect an explosive new album! I think the new record is definitely a different sound than the 1992 version of Roxy Blue, but not unrecognizable. The new record is much heavier, but still has some cool ballads and hints of early Roxy in there. I feel that it’s a well-balanced record.”

He continues, “I have been writing songs for years for different projects I’ve been in, but when Frontiers called, I knew it was an opportunity to take a fresh approach to the Roxy Blue sound. The excitement of having a new record deal actually inspired me to write the songs for the upcoming record from scratch.”

On the band’s legacy, Poole says, “for ‘Want Some’ to be recognized as one of the finest moments in the latter hard rock days is an honor. Especially being that there were so many good bands out at the time. We were just so proud to be a part of a great rock era.”
