FOXTRAX are on tour in support of their latest EP, 'The Cabin', opening for Barns Courtney in cities across North America. Featuring run-ins with bison and Salt Lake City newsrooms.

Here in NYC, we're currently experiencing a heatwave so intense that is has turned our generally lovely spring season into a muggy, Mojave-esque landscape. So, nothing felt more relatable than watching FOXTRAX's latest music video for "Underwater"—which showcases lead singer, Ben Schneid, wandering about the desert, running from mirage to mirage in desperation. Same, Ben, same.

The indie rock trio also hails from the Big Apple, but their 2016 EP, The Cabin, is not indicative of said hustle-and-bustle lifestyle. Recorded in the woods in North Carolina, the project is masterfully polished, emitting a laid back, vintage vibe that makes it the perfect soundtrack for a BBQ with the crew or your next summer roadtrip.

 

The "Go It Alone" performers are currently on the road supporting said project, opening for Barnes Country's North American tour. The band—Ben Schneid (Vocals, Guitar), Jon Stenz (Drums), and Jared Stenz (Bass)—will be bringing their high-energy show to cities like Pittsburgh, Nashville, and Cincinnati before wrapping in Minneapolis on June 28.

We were lucky enough to follow the guys on their west coast run, where they had run-ins with bison, Utahn newsrooms, and bull sculptures. Check it their exclusive Tour Diary below, and make sure to Track FOXTRAX on Bandsintown so you never miss them when they're in a city near you!
