Foghat released “Drivin’ On”, the first single of their upcoming album “Sonic Mojo” that will be out next November 10. The song was co-written by the late Kim Simmonds from Savoy Brown.
Formed in London, England in 1971, Foghat first achieved fame in the 70s with songs like “Slow Ride”, “Fool For The City” and “I Just Want to Make Love to You”. More than five decades later the band continues active with the original drummer Roger Earl as their leader.
Besides Earl, the band’s current line-up has: Bryan Bassett (Guitar – Since 1999), Rodney O’Quinn (Bass – Since 2015) and Scott Holt (Vocals, guitar – Since 2022).
According to the band, “Sonic” means “a frequency with the audibility range of the human ear of waves and vibration” and Mojo: “a charm or amulet thought to have magic powers”.
