Foghat returns on June 24 with the new album, Under the Influence.
In addition to charter members Roger Earl, Craig MacGregor, Charlie Huhn and Bryan Bassett, Foghat is working on this album with two Buddy Guy alumni: Scott Holt, who is a renowned singer-guitarist in his own right, and Tom Hambridge, a Grammy-winning writer and producer.
Drummer Earl says, “I first met Tom… at the Memphis Blues Awards. Tom said that he was a fan, and would love to produce a Foghat record [someday]. Puttin’ that in the back of my mind, this was the perfect opportunity… Working with him was inspirational.”
Under the Influence contains a dozen songs including the title track, “Hot Mama,” “Upside of Lonely” and a remake of their signature song “Slow Ride.”
