Fresh off the road from a successful European tour to celebrate their 20th anniversary of the 1992 release of “Strength In Numbers” on Eastwest/Atlantic Records, heavy metal funk/soul pioneers 24-7 SPYZ featuring the CDs original lineup, Jimi Hazel (guitar and vocals), Rick Skatore (bass and vocals), Jeff Brodnax (vocals), and Joel Maitoza (drums), is planning to enter the studio shortly to cut some new material.

In addition, during the recent Euro tour, the band was featured on the popular radio/television show Freak Night on the 3FM Serious radio network in Holland on March 3rd, 2012. A video clip from the show featuring the bands classic track “Grandma Dynamite” from the 1989 album Harder Than You was performed live on the radio show.

24-7 SPYZ came onto the funk-rock scene in 1989 with its debut album titled “Harder Than You”, followed by “Gumbo Millennium” in 1990 (both on In – Effect/Relativity Records). The band then released a five-song EP titled “This Is… 24-7 Spyz” in 1991 after signing with Eastwest/Atlantic Records with the full length release in 1992 “Strength In Numbers”, which included the single “Stuntman” that was featured in a Budweiser television commercial as well as an episode of “Beavis and Butthead”. 1995 brought the original lineup back together for the release of “Temporarily Disconnected” (Enemy Records) which, after a short tour, drummer Joel Maitoza reunited with Jimi Hazel and Rick Skatore to record the CDs “6″ (Enemy Records) and “Heavy Metal Soul By The Pound” (released in the U.S. on the What Are Records? label) in 1996. A live EP titled “If I Could” was released in 1997 also with the three-piece lineup. Most recently, the band has been promoting their CD “Face The Day” which was released in 2006. A new full length release from the band is scheduled for 2012.
