Punk Legends The Furys Return With New Album “The Furys Again”

Punk legends The Furys are back with a new album “The Furys Again” which will be released in all formats on October 8, 2021. The Furys are one of Southern California’s first New Wave/Punk/Powerpop bands!

The group’s first single was released in 1977 (“Hey Ma” b/w “Jim Stark Dark”), and 1978’s “Say Goodbye to the Black Sheep” was an international success, garnering extensive airplay, press, and live performances. According to founding member and lead vocalist Jeff Wolfe, “The Furys formed in 1977 as a reaction to the dreadful noise that was on the radio at that time.” 1979 saw the release of the “Moving Target” / “We Talk We Dance” single which elicited substantial critical response.

The Furys released a five-song mini album entitled “Indoor/Outdoor” in 1987. Recorded at EMI/America studio in Hollywood, “Indoor/Outdoor” had an excellent sales run, huge radio response and heavy press coverage.

The band’s new singles (“New Wave Girl” and “Action Reaction”) were released the second week of September 2021. These songs are the first new material issued by the band since 2015’s “The Sound of the Furys” CD.

In conjunction with the release of “The Furys Again” album, a reissue program will occur concurrently containing all three singles as mentioned above plus the “Indoor/Outdoor” mini album. These reissues will be the first time these pivotal tracks have been issued digitally.

Says Jeff Wolfe, “After numerous multi-generational requests, The Furys have been reformed to continue their campaign for world domination.”

The musical direction of The Furys was, is, and always will be melodic poetry blended with powerful music. The group’s latest release “The Furys Again” proves, yet again, that this philosophy holds true. Founding member and lead singer Jeff Wolfe provides the poetry. Long standing Furys member and multi-instrumentalist Dave Lewty provides the music.

This new album was recorded wholly in Lewty’s home studio with songs written by the duo. Wolfe and Lewty have enough compositions for three more Furys albums plus dozens more in various genres, including some not yet defined.

The songs themselves reflect culture, art, literature and, indeed, life in the 21st century. “Miss Havisham Regrets” is based upon the Dickensian character from “Great Expectations”. “Please Mister Kafka” is homage to the brilliant surrealist author Franz Kafka. “Afraid” is a powerful look at the BLM movement and the causes for its existence. Others (“I Gotta Grow Up”, “Glitter Bomb”, “Worthy”) are reflections on life in an advanced age. Some (“Anna, Come Home”, “New Wave Girl”) are simply catchy rock/pop songs about great women.

The Furys are entering their fifth decade of performing and recording; their latest album, “The Furys Again” keeps the original tradition alive whilst acknowledging contemporary influences.

1. TIGHTROPE WALKING (3:31)
2. GLITTER BOMB (3:27)

LA Punk Legends The Furys Return With A Vengeance!

Los Angeles – One of LA’s legendary Punk bands, The Furys, have returned to the music scene with a vengeance! Much to the excitement of fans worldwide, the reformed group has released a new self-titled 4-track EP now available on iTunes! The EP includes two new recordings by the group, “Wicked White” and “Tear It Down”, as well as their 1978 hit single “Say Goodbye To The Black Sheep”, and the track “The Girl Is Not At Home” from the band’s critically acclaimed 1988 EP on EMI!

Says founding member and lead vocalist Jeff Wolfe, “After numerous multi-generational requests, The Furys have been reformed to continue their campaign for world domination.”

According to Wolfe, “The Furys formed in 1977 as a reaction to the dreadful noise that was on the radio at that time.” The band was a forerunner in the DIY movement, writing, producing, performing, releasing, promoting and distributing their first single “Hey Ma/Jim Stark Dark” in 1977.

The Furys began performing all over Southern California after this first release. By 1978, the group released their second single “Say Goodbye to the Black Sheep”. The single received massive attention becoming an international underground hit, generating sales, radio play and an upswing in live markets. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPMtPepUf4g)

The press attention was extensive ranging from esteemed establishment publications such as the Los Angeles Times and Billboard to punk rock zines such as Slash and Flip Side. The group continued its live shows working stages with the likes of David Johansen, Iggy Pop, The Weirdos, Patti Smith, The Knack, the Plimsouls and many others. The Furys played anywhere and everywhere from the Whisky a Go Go to roller rinks in Orange County to punk rock warehouses in San Diego. In 1979, the band released their third single “We Talk We Dance/Moving Target” which continued the upward spiral.

In 1988 The Furys released their mini-album “Indoor/Outdoor” recorded at EMI/America. The album garnered huge college radio attention and the band continued its assault on the stages of America. (http://www.youtube.com/user/thefurysmusic)
