Louisville indie-rock band The Foxery has premiered a rambunctious new video today for their song "Broken Vessels" at NewNoiseMagazine.com. The song is featured on the band's recently released, full-length record, Unless, which is available now at iTunes and on limited edition vinyl from Spartan Records (http://spr.tn/the_foxery).
"We wanted to do a video that captured the fun and goofy nature of our band, since our music tends to be more dark and serious," says Travis Beck (keys, percussion). "We wanted to show people that although we may make music that explores a lot of questions and dark places, all in all we're just a bunch of goofballs that love to have fun and laugh at ourselves. So we thought a food fight video was the perfect way to do that! It was a ton of fun and Steve almost threw up when he had his face pushed into a bowl of mashed potatoes (he hates mashed potatoes). It was an absolute blast for sure!"
The band's debut album was mixed by J. Robbins (Jawbox, mewithoutYou, Jimmy Eat World) and features an unconventional amalgam of indie, alternative, punk and post-rock styles. The record is comprised of twelve brooding tracks that run a gamut of emotions as found on tracks like "Broken Vessels," "The Sorrow" and "Patmos."
The Foxery will be kicking off their Eastern U.S. tour tomorrow at Rocky's in Bowling Green, KY. The tour will wrap up on November 23rd in the band's hometown of Louisville.
