San Francisco blues-rock quintet The Stone Foxes have announced their first ever UK headline tour – including a visit to The Mash House in Edinburgh on Saturday, 6 February.
Gig-goers in the Capital may not know their name, but The Stone Foxes’ songs have been featured in commercials for Jack Daniels and BMW and on TV shows such as Shameless, Sons of Anarchy, and Legit.
The hotly-tipped band will be touring in support of their latest album Twelve Spells, which will be getting a full UK physical release on March 18 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 six million listens on Spotify.
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.
