Rejoice! A new Foxing track has appeared online.
‘The Magdalene’ is streaming via NPR, taken from their new album ‘Dealer’, set for release on October 30th. You can check it out below.
‘Dealer’ was written over a month in mid-winter in a remote cabin in Vermont, although ideas for songs had been sporadically compiled over the two years since the band’s debut ‘The Albatross’ came out. Talking to Upset, Drummer John Hellwig speaks of how the entirely new writing process affected how ‘Dealer’ will sound. “I don’t think a casual fan will be able to pick out the fact that we locked ourselves in a snowy cabin away from life and technology when listening to the record, but as it was happening it definitely improved our work ethic, and we found out a lot about ourselves as musicians and how we work best.”
The cabin was first used by Into It. Over It. earlier in the year for his forthcoming third full-length, and looks to be becoming a hub for creative minds in the American emo scene to lock themselves away and create something special. “Not being able to contact loved ones, or see the ground for all the snow in an entire month was something completely new, but also something that really affected what we were writing, and how this record sounds.”
