This week saw the release of brand new EP from the Foxes ‘Depression, Joy and A Moment of Fame.’ Released on June 28th 2010 through Room 10 Records the EP is set to dazzle both fans and critics.
The Foxes might have been sleeping on friends’ floors and in their battered old van for the past two years but their brand new ‘Depression, Joy and A Moment of Fame’ EP belies their homelessness. Having given up everything to get fully behind the band, they started their own label, Room 10 Records, and have been touring the UK, the US and Europe ever since.
Producer John Cornfield (Muse, Razorlight, Supergrass, Oasis) invited them to record their first full length album with him at the isolated Sawmills Studios in Cornwall, where the last part of the journey has to be completed by boat.
The four songs on ‘Depression, Joy and A Moment of Fame’ represent a taster of what is to come later in the year from The Foxes, originally hailing from Birmingham, Brighton and Leamington Spa but now settled, often uncomfortably, on a variety of floors in London.

The Foxes follow up their extensive tour of April, May and June with the following dates throughout July and September, hitting the road with what The Red Stripe Music Awards described as “an awesome set
