Fox Pass is a veteran Boston pop/rock band with an enigmatic name and fortuitous mystique, having been known in several arcane circles as foreshadowing certain Boston music scenes, and currently having the historical credibility to match their contemporary sound. Their music is a blend of rootsy Americana and Power Pop, with a strong 1960s influence that comes through the upbeat inspiring songs and the serious psychological tunes. If John Lennon sat in with The Byrds trying to emulate The Modern Lovers, it would give you some idea of the classic Fox Pass sound. The new CD is titled INTEMPOREL. The CD features many new songs plus a selection of immortal Fox Pass hits from long ago to answer the requests of their fans. The release date for INTEMPOREL, their long awaited double LP on CD, was calculated for world wide release on the palindrome date of 01/02/2010. INTEMPOREL is French for 'timeless, not of this world.' It also translates as ATEMPORAL in English 'independent of time.' Fox Pass has consciously created a classic double album: four distinct sides of music. Seventeen songs take the listener from the power pop opener HURRY CHERIE through 12-string heaven in COOL DREAMER to rootsy 70s rock of AMTRAK to the elegiac closer A LONG GOODBYE. In between are soaring melodies and harmonies, driving drums, pop hooks, jangly and rocking guitars, and multiple singers. The songs also possess clever word play and, in some songs, address serious themes about existence and dimension. Mostly, though, INTEMPOREL is the sound of a band at the top of it's game, sending out sounds that need to be heard, unaffected by trends, technologies, or temporary culture. Be entertained. 'Fox Pass,' bien sûr, est dérivé d'une phrase française commune, 'Faux Pas.' This was not commonly known in the original incarnation of the band. JON MACEY - lead and backing vocals/electric and acoustic guitars/dulcimer; MICHAEL J ROY - lead and backing vocals/electric and acoustic guitars/keyboards; STEVE GILLIGAN - backing vocals/ bass guitar; TOM LANDERS - drums.
