Knee High Fox Release Bloody, Sexy Video For “Black Widow”
Posted by JonathanBarkan
LA-based rock group Knee High Fox has released a video for “Black Widow”, which comes off their as-of-yet untitled debut album. The video shows the band performing in a dark room with several scantily clad people who are all engaged in some form of sexual tension. Then, things become a bit more vampiric.
The debut album is being produced by Howard Benson (Halestorm, RED, Art Of Dying) and will be released in 2013. Knee High Fox features Christine Connolly, who starred in 2006′s Underworld: Evolution.

Knee High Fox, “Comin’ For You” – Exclusive Video Premiere
Forget what you think you know about goths and have some fun while rocking out to the new video from Knee High Fox debuting exclusively here at Loudwire. Frontwoman Chrissy Fox directed the clip for “Comin’ for You,” which finds the goths sporting their black, but raging like most people do at a pool party.
“This was a super fun idea of having your typical summertime BBQ pool party but being straight up goth. How do the goth kids have fun in the sun? Well you have to watch this video and see,” says Fox. “I can honestly speak for the whole band and everyone involved this video shoot was the most fun we’ve ever had at one. The story feels so like us and we all just got drunk and went crazy on the slip n slide! Best time ever!.” Fox says she was inspired by the ’90s film The Craft and the song embodies the spirit of the movie where you’re rooting for the weirdos and strange kids.
Fox, who has also written songs for Theory of a Deadman, Halestorm, Pop Evil and 12 Stones, is currently focusing on Knee High Fox. “Comin’ for You” is featured on their 2015 album Obey the Cross, which is available to purchase via iTunes. The band is also in the process of working on a new album, so keep an eye peeled for that. And stay up to date on their touring at this location.

5 Bands That Are The Future Of Rock And Metal!
Posted by JonathanBarkan
It’s an amazing time for music, one where we have more listenable options open to us than ever before. And this number is only increasing with each day as we are given the ability to find new bands from resources such as Pandora, Spotify, Bandcamp, Soundcloud, and much, much more. But with that vast amount of possibility lies a loneliness. After all, how can we hope to find great new music when there are so many options ahead of us?
Well my lovely readers, allow me to offer some suggestions, shall I? Without further ado, I present to you 5 Bands That Are The Future Of Rock And Metal! Head on below to see which bands I think are gonna be at the forefront of these beloved genres!
This list is in no particular order
These LA female-fronted rockers encapsulate everything that is great about the rock genre. It’s raw, it’s dangerous, it has no frills, and it just kicks all sorts of ass. Singer Emily Armstrong (interview) wails, croons, howls, and flat out pummels you with her voice while guitarist Siouxsie Medley rips out one filthy, sexy riff after another.
Hailing from the UK, I described these guys as, “…the Guns N’ Roses of the 21st Century.” That’s a claim I refuse to back down from. Much like Dead Sara, Heaven’s Basement don’t play rock unless it’s dangerous and bound to get you going. Their debut full-length release, Filthy Empire (review), has been on constant rotation with me and it looks like it’ll be a guaranteed entry in my Top 10 Albums Of 2013.
I’m convinced that Australia is the new breeding ground for fantastic rock acts. I mean, there’s already Karnivool and Dead Letter Circus. Now we’ve got Strangers. These boys from Down Under have a great mix of modern infectious hard rock along and unexpected melodic passages. This is a band that will keep you on your toes as much as it gets your head banging.
Knee High Fox
I was lucky enough to hear some songs from the LA punk-rock group Knee High Fox and while I can’t go into many specifics, I can tell you that the overall impression that I came away with is that they’re Rob Zombie with female vocals. Since there hasn’t been anyone that I can think of off the top of my head that fits that description, I can’t see them going anywhere but straight up.
Okay, so this one might raise some eyebrows as they’re already fairly well established and have been making a lot of waves in the metal circuit. However, the band has also been hit with several setbacks since their signing to Century Media Records, losing not one but two singers, which would delay at the least and dissolve at the most any other band. However, these UK prog-metal masters are nothing if not unstoppable. Listening to their music is a hypnotic experience, one that has lulled me into a state where I don’t even realize that I’ve been listening to their music for several hours. Their infectious blend of tech metal, stunning layering and production, and gorgeous clean vocal harmonies make their challenging structure more of a welcome than a turn off. For those of you who are trying to introduce some of your friends to metal, TesseracT would be a perfect place to start.
Alright readers, what are some bands that you’re into that you think are gonna make it big and blow the socks off of everyone? Let me know in the comments below!

Exclusive: Knee High Fox Premiere New Music Video, “Black Widow”
"Knee High Fox–the L.A. rock band featuring frontwoman Christine Connolly, bassist Simon Nagel, and drummer Tuesdai Murgia–are currently recording their debut album with renowned producer Howard Benson (Halestorm, RED, Art of Dying); the record is set for release later this year. In anticipation, the group is premiering its new music video, for the song “Black Widow,” right here right now. Check it out below.
If frontwoman Connolly looks familiar, it’s probably because she has acted in such films as Underworld: Evolution and In the Land of Women. An accomplished songwriter, she also cowrote Halestorm’s “I Miss Misery,” 12 Stones “Blind,” and several songs with Theory of a Deadman including “Bad Girlfriend” and “Lowlife.”
