Limerick quintet, Fox Jaw, return to form with their brand new single 'Madeline', a modern strutting alt-rock groove anthem with hints of a New Romantics past.
The new single comes accompanied by a full Technicolor audio visual experience shot and directed by the band’s drummer, Shane Serrano. The music video follows the misadventures of a sexual predator and his prey, while paying homage to the cinematic styles or Tarantino and Rodriguez.
Recorded at Ballyhane Studios with engineer Art O’Laoire, mixed by Mike Gavin et Even Audio and Mastered by Richard Dowling at Wav Mastering (David Bowie, Foo Fighters, Interpol).
Once described as ‘a modern band with an old soul’, Fox Jaw have a swaggering trend-shaking growl, that always keeps things sweet and melodic with an honest collection of dark pop songs. With hundreds of shows under their belts, 13 Singles, 5 Vinyls Releases, 2 Studio Albums, 2 EPs, 1 Live Album, countless festival appearances, TV appearances, Magazine Covers, Music Video Awards, Album Of The Year Awards, and only one flat tyre ... Fox Jaw have been bringing their signature brand of rock and roll to audiences across Europe & North America for the last 13 years.
2014 saw the release of their 2nd studio album ‘Ghost’s Parade’, with an impressive amount of airplay, raising many eyebrows in the music industry, ‘Ghost’s Parade’ is an album in full sonic Technicolor, verifying the bands ability & love for a plethora of genres, above and beyond the pigeonholes many set for them.
In 2016, following the success of the release of their brooding rock & roll floor fillers ‘Do You Want It All?‘ & ‘Hit It Off’, the band released their 3rd EP ‘Black Light Vignette’ with a flying start both at home and overseas, getting picked up by over 30 college stations in the USA.
Fox Jaw have played such festivals as: Electric Picnic, Indie Week (Canada & Ireland), Castlepalooza, Knockanstockan, Indiependence, Sea Sessions, AranMojo, Hard Working Class Heroes, Glasgowbury, Vantastival, Arthur’s Day & more.
They’ve shared the stage with such acts as: Against Me!, The Strypes, And So I Watch You From Afar, Alabama 3, The Redneck Manifesto, Jape, Hayseed Dixie & many more.

“Majestic full-band rock with a distinct Irish touch.” – Nialler9 (IRL)
"It’s Irish vocalists such as Ronan Mitchell from Fox Jaw who make for an incredibly unfair playing field for every other Indie outfit from other corners of the globe ... It isn’t everyday you stumble across an up and coming band which can rival the likes of Interpol, Editors, the Black Keys, and Black Rebel Motorcycle club at the same time as carrying an undeniably contemporary fever in their sound." - A&R Factory (UK)
“Oscillating between bluesy hymns dripping with bass lines and good old-fashioned rock’n’roll-around-in-the-mud, Fox Jaw are punchier and sassier than your grandma after several cheeky sherries … Fox Jaw represent the future of Ireland alternative rock bands.” – Itcher Magazine (UK)
“An exciting sound that’s unquestionably their own.” – Hotpress (IRL)
“One listen to Fox Jaw’s second album and it’s impossible to figure out what genre they fall under … Therein lies the beauty of the Limerick quintet … Such inconsistency should be catastrophic, but Fox Jaw triumphantly embrace their weirdness” – The Irish Times (IRL)
“Solid songwriting with enough originality that puts them on the cusp of breaking … Fox Jaw are able to produce accessible rock songs that feel familiar while simultaneously finding their own signature sound … Highly recommended.” – The Equal Ground (USA)
“Songs that they can happily bring anywhere, and win audiences with ease … They’ve carved out a sound that stays away from anything else that’s around right now.” – Dan Hegarty / 2FM (IRL)
"The band thrashes and flails about to music that’s something close to a peppy-meets-heavy cross-section of Franz Ferdinand and Glenn Danzig ... incomparably fresh sound"
- Lynnks Music (USA)
"Few bands can be both a winter and a summer band but Limerick-based Fox Jaw manage to do just that. Their roots are planted firmly in soul music but with a healthy sprinkling of lighter, melodic beats; making their sound an intriguing combination of the light and the dark ... they make damn fine dark-pop songs!"
- Chasseur Magazine (IRL)
“Propelled by a strutting alt-rock groove and raspy vocal delivery that combine to excavate wonderfully malevolent undercurrents”
– TheThinAir.net (IRL)
