Fox Royale make anthemic, jangly indie-rock that sparkles with the same energy as acts like Cage the Elephant and Vampire Weekend. Before they were in a rock band, the members of Fox Royale were in a traveling orchestra.The band was born when high school friends Nathan Hurley, Davis Drake, and Evan Todd along with Nathan’s younger brother Caleb began jamming in their parents homes. Eventually they started thinking “Hey let’s try a little harder at this.” The band then began touring extensively for three years, Eventually earning a stage in front of War Road music management, who gave them their first record deal. Fox Royale has since put out two singles with another on the way, arriving April 9th.
Midwest Indie Rock from Tulsa, Ok
Future Tapes is the aftermath of previous project called Summit, a loud indie rock band, both led by Christian Sanchez. After a year of downtime and touring with other bands such as Nuns, a psychedelic rock band from Tulsa who has toured with national touring acts such as The Kills and Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance, Christian began writing again with another sound in mind. Future Tapes is a blend of Alternative bands such as Local Natives and The Neighborhood with more synthesizers and influences of the 80’s.
