Punk rock outfit Fenix Tx have returned from a 15-year hiatus with the announcement of their new EP, Cre.ep, due out 9/30 via Cyber Tracks. Limited edition vinyl and t-shirt bundles are now available for pre-order while supplies last. The five song EP features brand new songs that reveal the band’s new modern sound, while maintaining that pop punk spirit.
Lead Singer/Guitarist Will Salazar’s near death experience in 2015 served as the true catalyst for the group’s epic return to the music world. “When that happened, we were mid-writing music but weren’t ready to put anything out at that point,” says guitarist Chris Lewis. “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.”
As a result of their renewed drive to create music together, the group recordedCRE.EP, the band’s first studio release since 2001’s Lechuza. The music on this release spans nearly 13 years of on and off songwriting with one of the tracks having been originally recorded in 2004 with original member Damon De La Paz who recently joined the band on a reunion tour this past March.
