An antidote to cynicism, bridging the gap of generations before them. Fox Wilde is everything we love about the 80’s with everything we learned in the 90’s.
The sons of Pablo Cruise founding member and keyboardist, Cory Lerios, are following in their father’s footsteps. With a million+ streams on Spotify, an appearance on Good Day LA July 5 and an upcoming show at the world-famous Troubadour on July 26, brothers, Michael and Demitri Lerios have just started to hit their stride with their latest volume of work entitled “The Romance Epic.” It’s a bold and brilliant record encompassing their infectious pop choruses and electrifying guitar sounds. Fox Wilde is not just “some more music,” it is the next stage in the evolution of music.
Michael explains the genesis, “’The Romance Epic’ is about discovering that purpose along the way… it’s a love letter to life, music and the unknown.”
The first single, “Strangers on the Run,” will be released on all streaming services Thursday, June 26, accompanied by a short follow documentary detailing their journey.
The group is known for their 80’s inspired dance rock sound, that nods to The Killers while tapping into the big production beat of The 1975, crossed with the sibling harmonies of HAIM.
Fox Wilde, has previously released five individual tracks, including three (Soap, The Lonely Inn, and Rose & Veuve) as part of their first series “The Evergreen Tapes,” which Michael describes as, “The transformation from being writers/studio musicians to developing our new band and performance identity as Fox Wilde.”
“Fox Wilde was created as the alter-ego found inside each and every one of us” says frontman Demitri Lerios “It’s a character we all possess but are afraid to let out sometimes. One that lives epically, ultra-confident but not afraid to be their true self.”
Fox Wilde’s unique live shows have garnered them attention such as being named one of 2018’s Top 100 Best Unsigned Bands in the U.S. by Music Connection.
As songwriters and composers, Michael and Demitri have also composed and written for Demi Lovato’s YouTube documentary, “Simply Complicated,” the ESPN series Alex Morgan: The Equalizer and the Baywatch Remastered reboot. The pair have also collaborated with such hit writer/producers as Desmond Child (Bon Jovi, Aerosmith), Andreas Carlson (Backstreet Boys, Katy Perry) and Justin Tranter (Justin Bieber, Halsey), while providing music for advertising clients including Viacom, Love Magazine, Clean and Clear among many others.
Michael sums up their most recent collaboration, “We wanted to create something that doesn’t live in the confines of a box. Music has no boundaries and we wrote The Romance Epic with that in mind.”
