Fox Grin Announce New Album 'Dusk', Out March 22nd

Nashville-via-Atlanta outfit Fox Grin return from hibernation this spring with Dusk, a kaleidoscopic explosion of vibrant indie pop and sparkling art rock soundscapes. Officially arriving on March 22nd, it marks the band’s third full-length album and second in two years following 2018’s excellent King of Spades.

Says Fox Grin founding member Thom Chapman: "We love when albums have a full and complete concept. With Dusk we wanted the sonic palette to reflect bright and colorful songs at the beginning of the album and slowly transition into darker thematic and sonic territories. By the end of the album we really wanted to convey a feeling of night-time and darkness. "

Find the artwork and tracklist for Dusk below — and stay tuned for more from the pack in the coming days ahead.

Folk Rock Outfit Brother Oliver Celebrates Massive 2018, Looks Ahead to New Year

Summer Heart and Brothertiger Announce Upcoming Tour, South Carolina Show Presented by Future Chord

Feel the love on February 24th in Greenville, South Carolina — as Future Chord Presents Summer Heart, Brothertiger, and Rögg Collins at The Radio Room. Tickets are available at the door for $10 and the show begins at 8pm (RSVP here).

It’s not so often that a band’s name truly reflects their sound, but when it comes to Swedish solo pop act Summer Heart (David Alexander), you can expect just that; hazy, sun- bleached tracks that are the perfect anthem to remembering hot July nights filled with skinny dipping and sleeping in.

John Jagos, better known by his stage name, Brothertiger, began his initial forays into electronic music at an early age. His discovery of analog synthesis drew him into a world of endless possibilities, and led him to an abundance of influences from the past, particularly from the early 1980s. While studying music production at Ohio University, John began constructing a solo project that encapsulated his influence in early ‘80s synth music. Now, after spending much of the past few years writing and recording, John is focused on releasing a new album and debuting an engaging live performance that embodies his approach to organic electronic music.

Rögg Collins is the newest electronic act breathing life into the Upstate music scene.
