FOX Japan: Hell

FOX Japan
Small War Records [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
Hell is FOX Japan's sophomore record and it is full of super energized tracks that sound like Pavement on steroids. It is singer Charlie Wilmoth that leads the charge with his Ted Leo "nothing can stop me attitude", which carries each track to a new level. The band supports this direction and backs it up with feverish playing making Hell a worthy listen if you are looking for something new and different when the album becomes available in October!

Key Track: "Divorce"

Band With Similar Fire: Ted Leo + The Pharmacists
