St. Louis art-rockers Foxing have shared the title track for their forthcoming album ‘Draw Down The Moon’, alongside a cinematic film clip starring Tony-, Emmy- and Grammy-winning multi-hyphenate André De Shields.
The video – directed and edited by the trio of Conor Murphy, Dylan Schnitker and Hayden Molinarolo – was filmed on the set of the recent Shakespeare In The Park production of King Lear, in which De Shields also starred. Take a look at it below:
Musically, ‘Draw Down The Moon’ is a palpably dynamic encapsulation of Foxing’s stylistic evolution, starting off with a showcase of the funky, synth-accented pop-rock they’ve explored in recent times, before progressively veering into a raging post-hardcore jam more aligned with their earlier releases.
It comes as the fifth single from the album of the same name, due for release on August 6 via the band’s own Grand Paradise label (in tandem with Hopeless Records). Thus far, Foxing have also shared ‘Speak With The Dead’, ‘Go Down Together’, ‘Where The Lightning Strikes Twice’ and ‘If I Believed in Love’.
Fans will be able to hear cuts from the new LP live when Foxing embark on a 38-date run of North American tour dates in October, supporting longtime collaborators Manchester Orchestra (with whom they also worked on ‘Draw Down The Moon’).
Catch the full list of tour dates below, and head to Manchester Orchestra’s website to score tickets.
Foxing will also headline their own album release show on Saturday August 14, taking place at The Pageant in their native St. Louis. Tickets to that gig are on sale now from the venue’s website, with the band promising to tattoo a slice of butter cake on frontman Conor Murphy if it sells out.
