Another veteran rock outfit has announced it is making a comeback.
Punk rock outfit Fenix TX has announced that it will release its new EP CRE.EP on Friday, September 30th. The five-song record’s release marks the first time in fifteen years that the band has released any new material. Its last release was 2001’s Lechuza.
One of the songs that will be featured in the record was originally recorded in 2004 with original Damon De La Paz. De La Paz recently joined the band for a reunion tour this past March.
The driving force behind the band’s push to record and put out its new material was front man Will Salazar’s 2015 near death experience. Salazar suffered a stroke in 2015. An online donation set up by Salazar’s band mate, guitarist Chris Lewis resulted in a hug outpouring of support for Salazar.
Lewis said the support and well wishes encouraged the band to get to work and get its new record out to fans who have waited so long for the band’s next release.
“When that happened, we were mid-writing music but weren’t ready to put anything out at that point,” Lewis said of Salazar’s stroke. “I got the text message in the middle of the night that Will had a stroke and put an online donation together right away. Will was blown away by the outpouring of well wishes he received. That was a wake up call that nothing in life is guaranteed.”
Limited edition vinyl and t-shirt bundles are available now for pre-order while supplies last here.
