FOX JAW – New Single ‘Kerosene’ – Out 28th February
Fox Jaw are a modern band with an old soul. Producing a trend shaking, majestic deep growl, which swaggers from the terrific to the sublime. A band that usually err on the side of darkness, but always keeping it sweet and melodic with an honest collection of dark pop songs. Critics praising them as “True hidden gems”, “A seductively gloomy sound in a league of its own … will both mystify and satisfy” (State.ie).
Formerly Fox Jaw Bounty Hunters, Fox Jaw are a band filled to the brim with new beginnings as they enter 2014. Aside from a new abbreviated name, they are armed to the teeth with an armada of new material, locked & loaded with new recruits, and equipped with a sagacious mind for the road ahead. This isn’t a band reinventing themselves; this is plain and simple evolution. And now, after a year in hiding, writing, recording & honing their craft, the storm is brewed and ready for serving.
Currently on the verge of releasing ‘Kerosene’ on February 28th 2014, a glistening throw back to that of a 1950’s blues ballad, but with a modern day attack. Taken from their upcoming sophomore album, ‘Ghost’s Parade’, recorded with producer Dave ‘Skippy’ Christophers (Josh Ritter, Whipping Boy, Mundy) & engineer Owen Lewis (Flogging Molly, Snow Patrol, REM), and mastered at WAV Mastering by Richard Dowling (David Bowie, Foo Fighters, Interpol).
The single comes accompanied online, with an audiovisual treat that incorporates a range of Limerick personalities. Directed by the bands very own Shane Serrano, who’s concept conjuring was shared with Blind Boy Boatclub of The Rubberbandits, and stars actors Kevin Kiely Jnr. (World War Z, The Dark Knight Rises) and Richard Lynch (ILoveLimerick.com). A twisted little concept & video, that will certainly reside in your subconscious, whether you like it or not.
Fox Jaw are Ronan Mitchell (vocals, guitar, piano), Morgan Nolan (guitar, backing vocals, keys), Shane Serrano (drums, backing vocals, clarinet), Manolis Sheehan (guitar, backing vocals) and Kieran J. Sims ( bass, backing vocals).
