Not long now - 'Fever' is released on 9th November.It'll be available to buy in all good on-line stores including iTunes and Amazon.
There's a very special 'Fever' launch night gig on 9th November with the magnificent Darling Boy at the Hope and Anchor in North London - it was where The Foxes had our very first gig, so it seemed fitting to go back. Everyone who backed my Kickstarter gets in free too.
Here's the event page, do check it out.
The reviews are starting to come in and are pretty darn good -#Jammerzine - 'The track explores the theme of madness and depravity and is both intoxicating in its execution and enthralling in its delivery.'
Rocky Road - 'Musicality wise the song is strong and with such an exciting video to accompany it I just couldn’t pass it up.'
Know Me Better Music - 'Definitely worth a watch and a listen!'
Sam Might Say - '...you get a feel for the gorgeous melodies that Thomas writes, mixing your late sixties with a bit of Britpop, honest lyrics, and familiar sounds are what you get hooked to Nigel Thomas.'
God is in the TV - 'when the delay warps his words, the tune gets filthier, it’s apparent we’re listening to a well-crafted corruption.'

There are also a couple of rather fine interviews -
Songwriting Magazine - 'If you’ve just heard the single, you might be quite surprised by the album.'
Rock at Night - 'The melodies are sweet and dreamy while the lyrical content is both poignant and quirky.'
BCB Radio - With Phil Lickley. Listen again here.

Excuse the lack of witty banter on this blog - I'm exhaused and am going to sleep for a week.
