San Francisco blues-rock quintet The Stone Foxes have announced their very first UK headline tour. The ten-date February run will kick off at Start The Bus, Bristol on February 3rd and finish at The Gladstone, Brighton on February 13th. The band will play Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen on February 12th.
The Stone Foxes will be touring in support of their latest album Twelve Spells, which will be getting a full UK physical release on March 18th and is available digitally now.
From the fuzzy stomp of album opener “Eye For Love”, the tarnished-distortion and raucous kicks sees The Stone Foxes combine West Coast slacker riffs with a Deep South blues swagger, like a wide-eyed Jack White jamming with Kings Of Leon.
Elsewhere on Twelve Spells, The Stone Foxes gather indie sentiments in the likes of “This Town” and “Locomotion”, which they meld with their distinct rock ‘n’ roll touch as they swagger like a leather clad Arctic Monkeys or a gnarled Catfish and the Bottlemen.
Intimate moments, as found on “Cold Like A Killer” and “Jericho”, command attention like a captivating sermon. Yet they can also belt a creeping powerhouse vocals and cutting guitar, reminiscent of Alabama Shakes intertwined with the charm of Father John Misty.
Despite the band only visiting the UK for the very first time this coming February, The Stone Foxes have already built a very formidable UK following. With over 6 million listens on Spotify, The Stone Foxes have London as the No.1 city in the world with fans in the capital listening to The Stones Foxes in large numbers, hungry to discover more about a band as yet unknown to British media.
The Stone Foxes’s clattery rock songs have previously been featured within episodes of Sons Of Anarchy and Shameless, and sound-tracked ad campaigns by Jack Daniels, BMW and the NFL on FOX.
The looming presence of The Stone Foxes both here and internationally has seen them blaze an impressive live trail where they have supported the likes of The Black Keys, Cage The Elephant and even ZZ Top, plus playing high-profile American festivals including Outside Lands and Voodoo Festival.
