Melbourne Punk outfit Foxtrot have announced the surprise release of their 2nd full-length album Habitats, which is available right now from Jackknife Music on Vinyl and as a digital download.
The new album features 11 tracks that showcase the full scale of the band ‚Äď from all out aural assaults, to more measured emotional tracks; songs that were refined on stages across Melbourne are realised in full on Habitats.
‚ÄėUpdike‚Äô, the first single from the album, was premiered on Tone Deaf back in September, with them calling it ‚Äúeverything we‚Äôve come to love and expect from the guys‚ÄĚ.
To celebrate the release of their album, Foxtrot are hitting the road to bring their visceral live performance to the people of Australia. The nine-date tour will see the band hit the East Coast of the country, including appearances at Party Party Part Sea in Adelaide, and The Reverence Hotel‚Äôs 4th Birthday Party.
Joining them on the tour will be fellow Melbournians Foley!, who‚Äôs debut album Ascot Vale was one of Moshcam‚Äôs Top 5 Punk albums of 2015.
Since forming in 2010, Foxtrot have become stalwarts of the Melbourne Punk scene. Last year they completed a national tour with The Bennies, and have also supported the likes of Basement, Off With Their Heads, The Aquabats, and The Hotelier. They‚Äôve graced the stages of Poison City Weekender and Gingerfest.
Habitats was recorded with Sam Johnson at Holes and Corners Studio. It will be released through influential Melbourne DIY label Jackknife; which boasts an alumni that includes The Smith Street Band, The Bennies, and Georgia Maq (Camp Cope).
