Press Release

Legendary rockers Foghat — Roger Earl (founding member/drums), Bryan Bassett (lead guitar, formerly with Wild Cherry and Molly Hatchet), Charlie Huhn (lead guitar and lead vocals, formerly with Ted Nugent, Gary Moore, Victory and Humble Pie) and Rodney O’Quinn (bass, formerly with the Pat Travers Band) — celebrate 50 years of rock and roll with “8 Days On The Road”, a 14-track live performance that will be released as a double CD/DVD package on July 16, 2021 on their own Foghat Records label, distributed by Select-O-Hits (which is part of the Sun Records family and is owned by Sam Philips’s son and nephew).

Pre-orders are now available on these digital outlets, which includes an instant download of “Road Fever” with purchase, as well as a pre-save on Spotify. A video for the song can be seen on the band’s official YouTube page today. The collection will also be available on 180-gram vinyl in the coming months.

Recorded on November 17, 2019 at Daryl’s House Club in Pawling, New York, the collection features the band’s biggest and most legendary hits, including “Slow Ride”, “I Just Want To Make Love To You”, “Fool For The City” and so many others.

As original drummer Roger Earl explains: “Eight days on the road is more like 80,000 days on the road for us, but that’s okay; I love my job! It was a change and a real pleasure to play this particular small room. I explained to a couple of folks sitting down front as we were about to take the stage that we sweat a lot, and they might want to finish eating. They just grinned and said, ‘We’re ready.’ And so were we!”
