Foxing and Now, Now Are Going On Tour Together aka a Literal Dream Come True
These are the kinds of tours you remember. The bands behind two of last year’s most critically-acclaimed indie releases,Foxing and Now, Now, will be touring together this spring. All tickets on sale this Friday at 10AM local at foxingtheband.com.
There's a pre-sale up on their website, too, including a limited, signed screen-printed poster. BrooklynVegan-sponsored venue pre-sales (aka ticket pre-sale sans bundle) will go live this Thursday.
Foxing’s Nearer My God is an apocalyptic melodrama about control in a world that really, really feels like it’s falling apart. Produced by Chris Walla (Death Cab For Cutie) and expertly-executed by vocalist Conor Murphy, guitarists Eric Hudson, Ricky Sampson, and Jonathan Hellwig on drums, Foxing shines their collective brightest on this record, combining elements of anthemic indie rock, avant-garde R&B, classical and more to create their most original and strongest material yet.
Nearer My God took the band nearly three years to complete, but that time was well spent re-focusing on the future of Foxing. What preceded Nearer My God’s newfound energy was the emotional and physical fatigue that came from years of their relentless drive. Their last album, 2016’s Dealer, helped push the St. Louis group to entirely new heights; Pitchfork instantly dubbed it “an artistic triumph,” it debuted at #3 on Billboard’s best-selling vinyl chart, and the band spent nearly 2 years off and on the road in support of it.
The patience pays off, though; Nearer My God feels like an entirely refreshed Foxing, even if they never really needed much refreshing in the first place.
