Biography

Fox Cubs were a band from the United Kingdom that existed from July 2007 - April 2009.

Since forming in late July 2007 Fox Cubs have shared the stage with a variety of artists including Pull Tiger Tail, ¡Forward, Russia!, Eastern Conference Champions, Future of the Left and Kong. In 2008 the band recorded live sessions for both Radio One and XFM, headlined Steve Lamacq’s stage at the 2008 Camden Crawl and performed on the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds festivals.

Fox Cubs were unsigned, but had self-released two singles, both produced by Dave Eringa (Manic Street Preachers/Idlewild). Their debut, Beasts of England, was record of the week on Steve Lamacq’s BBC 6 show as well as by John Kennedy at XFM. The track was also used as part of the soundtrack in an episode of popular teen soap, Hollyoaks.

The band’s second, and current release, You Never Learn, won Lamacq’s Rebel Playlist on BBC 6, beating two artists signed to major labels. The video for ‘You Never Learn’ was shot on a tiny budget and is entirely made up of real flipbooks, flipped and filmed by brilliant new director Blake Claridge. The video has since been requested by MTV2 for inclusion in their Myspace chart.

In April 2009 the band played their last concert at Plug & Play in Reading.
Reviewers have drawn comparisons with British Sea Power, We Are Scientists, The Teardrop Explodes, Gary Numan, Apartment, Editors, Bloc Party and The Killers as well as many others.
