New Single ‘Falling Debris’ - Out Sept 12th 2014 - On Digital Download & Limited Edition Transparent Yellow 7" Vinyl.
New Album ‘Ghost’s Parade’ - Out Sept 19th 2014 - Download/CD/& Limited Edition Clear Transparent 12” Vinyl.

After a year in hiding, writing, recording & honing their craft, Fox Jaw are ready to release their second long player, ‘Ghost’s Parade’, and are equipped with a sagacious mind for the road ahead…

A modern band with an old soul, they have been producing a trend shaking, majestic deep growl, which swaggers from the terrific to the sublime. A band that usually err on the side of darkness, but always keeping it sweet and melodic with an honest collection of dark pop songs. Critics praising them as "True hidden gems", "A seductively gloomy sound in a league of its own ... will both mystify and satisfy” (State.ie). “One of Ireland's most inventive and engaging rock bands” (Hotpress).

‘Falling Debris’, out Friday September 12th, is the third single from the upcoming sophomore album, 'Ghost's Parade', recorded with producer Dave 'Skippy' Christophers (Josh Ritter, Whipping Boy, Mundy) & engineer Owen Lewis (Flogging Molly, Snow Patrol, REM), and mastered at WAV Mastering by Richard Dowling (David Bowie, Foo Fighters, Interpol). ‘Ghost’s Parade’ is out September 19th 2014.

With an already successful year of single releases with an impressive amount of airplay, raising many eyebrows in the Irish music industry, as a band proving themselves with an ever expanding sound. From the sleazy blues ballad sounds of 'Kerosene’, to the rock & roll foot stomps of ‘Hijack’ - ‘Falling Debris’ further adds to an already technicolor palette, and gives one more snippet before the new long player finally gets it’s public release.

A simple background check on the band reveals, that the guys are one of the hardest working bands in the country. Formerly Fox Jaw Bounty Hunters, they released their debut album 'The Devil In Music' in 2011, and played close to 100 shows within 24 months, across Ireland, the UK & Canada (80 of those shows were within the first 10 months!). With many festival appearances including Indie Week (Toronto), Glasgowbury Festival, Vantastival, Arthur's Day, Knockanstockan and even being added to the Main Stage at Indiependence Festival to share the boards with the like of Ash, Editors & Therapy?. Going from strength to strength, featuring on a Becks Vier TV advertising campaign, a flip cover of Hot Press, and receiving an 'Album Of The Year' Award from Independent UK music website, The Underclassed. There's a strong chance you've come across this band before, without even realising!

They've shared the stage with such acts as: 
Against Me!, Therapy?, And So I Watch You From Afar, The Redneck Manifesto, Jape, Hayseed Dixie, Fight Like Apes, Calvin Harris, The Feeling & more.

'HIJACK Single Reviews:

"The Limerick outfit build on being one of Ireland's most inventive and engaging rock bands ... a hugely thrilling listen ... Top stuff" - Hotpress

"A group with a unique alternative-rock and pop sensibilities, Fox Jaw’s music is both infectious and tensely presented through its overall production. ‘Hijack’ is the perfect example of the Limerick band’s individual approach to their sound" - The Last Mixed Tape

"absolutely cracking new single ... a major contender for my favourite Irish song so far this year" - 2 U I Bestow

"the band thrashes and flails about to music that’s something close to a peppy-meets-heavy cross-section of Franz Ferdinand and Glenn Danzig ... One thing’s for sure: the incomparably fresh sound of these tunes bodes well for the forthcoming full-length" - Lynnks Music

"very good. I'm open-mouthed" - Olaf Tyaransen (Hotpress) (via Twitter)

"this is a beast of a tune and one that sums up the very definition of the word “whopper”" - U&I Music Magazine

========================

'KEROSENE' Single Reviews:

“Big fan of this track!” - Rigsy ATL / BBC

“Their new single ‘Kerosene’ is up a level from what’s gone before … the song’s dynamics go from a Pixies-esque psych-ballad to majestic full-band rock with a distinct Irish touch.” – Nialler9

"The Limerick outfit have broadened their sound ... The track is a bombastic, beguiling offering, arguably their best to date ... soaring guitars, unhinged howls and sweet falsettos. In short, a must listen." - Hotpress

“‘Kerosene’ is a triumph in artistic cohesion between the sonic and visual, adding another dimension to the already deep-seated sound of Fox Jaw’s single. Few music videos this year will be as entertaining and jarring in equal measure.” - thejournalist.ie

"Few bands can be both a winter and a summer but Limerick-based Fox Jaw manage to do just that. Their roots are planted firmly in soul music but with a healthy sprinkling of lighter, melodic beats; making their sound an intriguing combination of the light and the dark, an examination of the conflict within the human psyche. Or, if that is too deep, they make damn fine dark-pop songs!" - Chasseur Magazine

“Ronan Mitchell and his distinctly guttural Irish tones are back in full show … Kerosene is a nod towards further interesting offerings to strengthen Irelands music scene.” - revolverproject.com

“The new single is an early and intriguing taster from upcoming album ‘Ghost’s Parade’, a menacing, growling three minute-odd slab of the brooding rock and roll - with a thumping guitar solo” – Limerick Leader

“Fox Jaw have taken a step back and cleverly refined their sound, becoming far more modern and much less bluesy. Beginning slowly, the dark track soon builds to a brilliant crescendo of drums and wailing guitars, all complimented by the sound of Ronan Mitchell’s timbrous growl.” – Roqueandrolle

"Freaky dancing, cassette tapes and weirdness ahoy in 'Kerosene', cool new tune from Fox Jaw" - Tony Clayton-Lea (Irish Times)(via twitter)

“Propelled by a strutting alt-rock groove and raspy vocal delivery that combine to excavate wonderfully malevolent undercurrents” – thethinair.net
