Seattle's Fox and the Law are Releasing Their Third LP,Stoned to Death, on October 21st!!
"There was a time when every band in Seattle was as brash and ragged as Fox and the Law,” writes City Arts Magazine. It’s true: during a period where the Emerald city has become better known for its shoe-gazers, its singer/songwriters, and its new-age cowboys, this hard-rocking quartet harkens back to a louder, more energetic era. Pulling their sound straight out of the garage and drawing heavily on blues and classic rock influences, Fox and the Law have made a name for themselves since their 2010 formation as the go-to band in Seattle for a raucous, beer-soaked party.
Founder Guy Keltner (guitar, vocals) has worked with Dan O’Neil (drums), Patrick Dougherty (bass), and Peter Williams (guitar) to fulfill his vision of what a rock and roll act should be: heavy, rhythmic, and loud. Strong influences include T Rex, The Stooges and Stevie Ray Vaughan. The band has recorded albums with Martin Feveyear (Mudhoney, Queens of the Stone Age, Modest Mouse) and Graig Markel(Band of Horses, Nada Surf) and has performed at everything from packed clubs to the rowdiest house parties.
Their efforts have not gone unnoticed. Having spent more than a quarter of 2013 touring the West Coast and the Southwest, they closed the year out by headlining Seattle’s Psychedelic Holiday Freak Out festival and performing a live in-studio session on legendary radio station KEXP. Fox and the Law are currently represented by independent imprint FunkFarm. They plan to spend this Summer finalizing their new album as well as preparing for a tour in Europe this Fall.
