Seattle rock ‘n’ roll outfit Fox and the Law know about hard work. Formed in 2010, the quartet released their debut Scarlet Fever two years later and have been touring consistently since then. Now their sophomore full-length is on its way and second single “Hot Water” jams itself into your ears from the get-go. Surging into a swelling chord progression and shouty, soulful wails, the track balances on a strange tightrope of blues and garage. Shredding guitars tethered to thunderous bass lines sound like they could have been plucked from Jay Reatard’s Blood Visions, until they pause for a hazy, psychedelic solo. If the classic rock bravado of “Hot Water” is a sign of things to come then Stoned to Death couldn’t be a more appropriate title for Fox and the Law’s new record. It’s not out due until October 21st, but their album release party is today at Tractor Tavern in Seattle! Plus check out their UK tour dates below.
