Fox Jaw take a break from their songwriting year, to release 'Heel to Toe', a stand alone Winter-infused single, accompanied by a unique hometown show they call: 'Ivory, Wine & Song'. Crooning takes over from amplification, electric guitars are replaced by acoustics and frontman Ronan Mitchell takes a seat behind the piano to play a very different kind of Fox Jaw set, along with a rare collection of Christmas classics
With over 300 shows, 9 Singles, 5 Vinyls Releases, 2 Albums, 2 EPs, 1 Live Album, countless festival appearances, TV appearances, Magazine Covers, Music Video Awards, Album Of The Year Awards, and only one flat tyre … Fox Jaw have been bringing their signature brand of rock and roll to audiences across Europe & North America for the last 11 years.
Described as ‘a modern band with an old soul’, they have a swaggering trend-shaking growl, but always keeping it sweet and melodic with an honest collection of dark pop songs. Praised as “True hidden gems” (state.ie). 2016 saw the band release their 'Black Light Vignette' EP featuring brooding rock & roll floor fillers ‘Do You Want It All?‘ & ‘Hit It Off’, along with the cinematic soundscapes of 'Weakness' and 'Hide & Creep', garnering airplay across the US by over 40 college radio stations. 2014 proved to be their most successful year to date with the release of their 2nd album ‘Ghost’s Parade’, raising many eyebrows in the music industry ‘Ghost’s Parade’ is an album in full sonic technicolor, verifying the bands ability & love for a plethora of genres, above and beyond the pigeon holes many set for them.
