“Reiði, their second album, contains more shiver-inducing, stomach-plunging, goosebump-raising thrills than most bands manage in an entire career”– Drowned in Sound (10/10)

“Black Foxxes are already sounding more nuanced and informed than almost the entirety of the previous generation of trite, moulded and bland rock filler” – The Four Oh Five (9/10)

“Resolute in its delivery and steadfast in its ambition, Black Foxxes have delivered an album that’s both hauntingly fragile, aggressively unapologetic and arguably one of the strongest releases of the year” – Line of Best Fit

“‘Reiði’ crackles with passion” – Upset (5/5)

“…imbued with a sense of hope that peeks cautiously through open fingers” – Classic Rock

“They continue to create and deliver captivatingly unique songs” – DIY (4/5)

“This second offering from the trio should have fans of grunge, indie and emo alike worshipping at the Foxxes’ den” – Total Guitar (4.5/5)

“‘Reiði’ finds Black Foxxes ready to step out on their own” – Dork (4/5)

BLACK FOXXES have released a cover of ‘Love Song’ by The Cure, featuring a string orchestra accompaniment; the associated video captures the band – Mark Holley, Ant Thornton & Tristan Jane – performing an intense and haunting rendition of The Cure classic in a remote Cotswold mansion. The results are unmistakably ‘Black Foxxes’.

Says vocalist / guitarist Holley: “I found ‘Love Song’ at a time when I needed it the most; it takes a lot for lyrics to stand out in a song for me, but I was genuinely floored. It was everything I’d wanted to get off my chest for months, captured in this three minute ‘Love Song’. We knew we had a live session coming up,” continues Holley, “and I could hear that recurring motif being played by the string section straight away; as soon as I suggested it to the guys they were instantly on board. Truly one of my favourite songs of all time now.”

Following memorable summer performances including East London’s All Points East Festival (alongside Björk, Beck & Father John Misty), 2000 Trees, UK, and Main Square, France (a particularly intense performance that saw Holley break a rib), Black Foxxes will return to the stage later this month at Leeds & Reading Festivals.

A UK run of sold-out Mark Holley headline solo shows has been postponed due to ongoing illness.
