The Foxfires are a four-piece Seagaze band from New York and New Jersey formed in 2013. Their sound is an oceanic indie rock blend of folk, shoegaze, surf rock, and indie pop. The band has played on stages, both small and large with artists such as Michale Graves (Former Misfits frontman), Kurt Travis (Former Dance Gavin Dance frontman), Sparks the Rescue, Have Mercy, Pentimento, Rookie of the Year, and just this past June, they played at Pittsburgh Pride alongside Jennifer Hudson. The band has had their music licensed to NASCAR, Discovery Networks LLC (Discovery, Science Channel, Animal Planet, TLC, etc), MTV, Bring Your Own Board, and Roadtrip Nation in 2017 alone and their music has been featured on radio across the United States and in select parts of the UK. Festivals and events that they have played include Pittsburgh Pride, Newburgh Illuminated Festival, Jersey Shore Music Festival, The NYC Marathon (2016, 2017), Northside Festival, Groove on Grove (2016, 2017), ValleyFest, Haverstraw River Arts Fest, and the Millennium Music Conference (2017, 2018; both as a featured artist on the event's compilation CD.) They will be performing at East Coast Music Conference in Virginia in May, PVD Fest in Rhode Island and PEX Summer Fest in June, O+ Fest in New York, and Musikfest in Pennsylvania in August, and Electric City Music Conference in Pennsylvania in September, with many more special events and shows yet to be announced!
The Foxfires just released two new singles titled, “Don’t Give Up” and “Choose Love.” The latter is a campaign and message the band have been pushing for 4 years to move towards a more empathetic, equal, and balanced future where we see past race, gender, religion, sexuality, or political party and to fully embrace all of humanity. “Don’t Give Up” is an anti-suicide song that the band have been adamant about putting out since the recent deaths of Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington.
