Foxygen’s Sam France and Rado recently met with John Norris for a sweet little interview at NYC’s Webster Hall. Tis always a treat to hear from these two, especially when they are wearing such marvelous shirts. Watch above or at Noisevox.
Foxygen are currently on tour with Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Wampire; a tour you’ll be incredibly sorry to miss. You can check out all the dates HERE! Get your tickets in advance for shows are quickly selling out!
Guitar in hand, burger in mouth – it’s a recipe for success. Foxygen stopped by The Fly to perform two songs from their recently released album, We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic (available via SC Distribution, iTunes and Amazon). Enjoy “In The Darkness” and “No Destruction” above.
You can witness all the madness in person. Foxygen are on tour now in Europe, with dates in the States starting February 13 at San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall. What could make this tour even better? Playing it with labelmates Unknown Mortal Orchestra (yes, you’re reading correctly). You’ll find the full schedule HERE.
P.S. For all you New Yorkers, Foxygen has just announced two headlining NYC shows, being that the date with UMO at has now SOLD OUT and all. You can see them live at the Knitting Factory in April and the Mercury Lounge on May 15
If you’re itchin’ for some more Foxygen, NPR’s World Cafe has your fix! The Foxy boys and touring gang perform songs off their new album, We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic, including “In The Darkness,” “San Francisco,” and “Shuggie.“ Along with the stellar in studio performances, Jonathon Rado and Sam France talk about developing their sound and how the second album differs from Take the Kids Off Broadway.
