The Stone Foxes are San Francisco’s rock band. They bear the torch of their predecessors with the knowledge that rock ‘n roll can move a new generation. They’ve played in front of thousands at festivals like Outside Lands and Voodoo Fest, they’ve headlined the legendary Fillmore Theater in their hometown and they have supported acts like The Black Keys, Cage the Elephant and ZZ Top. Now, with the release of their fourth album, Twelve Spells, they have solidified a place in their City’s rich rock ‘n roll history.

The Stone Foxes are an experience to dive into, to get wild with, to sweat with. “The Stone Foxes have an energetic style that’s rooted in swampy, foot-stomping rock…ambitious arrangements with diverse moods ranging from acoustic twang to thunderous electric-guitar riffs.”
-NPR/WXPN “WORLD CAFE” Invoking the audience with their commanding stage presence, even jumping down into the crowd if the mood strikes. Their fans know they are in for something action packed and they light a fire in the band, just as the band spreads fire back into them. Guitarists digging in, lead vocals changing between two unique voices with impassioned nuance, and keyboard and organ sounds that fill the space with smoke and burning embers. There are crunchy drum tones, wailing harmonica draws and violin cries that can silence even the most raucous of rooms. But this is not a sit-down-and-watch kind of event. Like Elvis once said about rock n roll, “If you feel it, you can’t help but move to it.” The Stone Foxes’ live show brandishes this kind of dynamic passion on stage. It’s impossible not to feel it.
With the release of Twelve Spells, the band has chronicled their new beginning.
“Garage rock gold…the sound of a band hitting their stride.” – PANDORA
“Perfect back-to-basics rock” – ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
The sounds they are creating are new with tinges of western darkness, punk, surf, and americana, but are strongly tied together by their everlasting rock ‘n roll core. Lyrics about gentrification, income inequality, romance, and heart surgeries pour out of their stream of consciousness. It’s a fresh rock ‘n roll album that chronicles the years of their unification, taking on the issues of their lives and our times.
“Driving this Weekend? Listen to Twelve Spells by The Stone Foxes…Time will fucking fly.” – DENIS LEARY
