THE FOX & THE HOUNDS
ROCK - Alternative
Chicago's Only Burlesque Rock N' Roll Band
Peachy Keen, the new EP from Chicago genre-benders The Fox & the Hounds, is a screaming six-song odyssey through the satin-and-smoke-filled world of love, loss, betrayal, and revenge in which the band makes its home.
The Fox & The Hounds are touted as the area’s only Burlesque Rock and Roll band, whose live shows are subversively cathartic and soul-baringly one of a kind. They were made to love you. They may also want to kill you.
Long-time listeners of the band will hear something completely new on Peachy Keen. Fans will find heavily distorted guitars from Aidan Mouat and Mike Sviokla, coupled with the solid rock chops of bassist Ira Ochs and drummer Tony Panico. The powerhouse foursome provides a thrilling backdrop for Lester and co-singers Katie Astrauskas and Kate Brassel. RaxTrax’s Noam Wallenberg (I Fight Dragons, Jennifer Hall, Cards Against Humanity) provided the production.
The Fox & the Hounds have never been afraid to try new things, never been afraid to make bold choices with their sound and stage show, or take a new direction with their artistic vision. And the hundreds of fans who have followed them out of the basement in Lakeview and into the streets of Chicago have been rewarded at every turn.
Peachy Keen is out now.
