VIDEO STARS MUSIC LEGEND JOHN OATES 
NEW EP GROWING UP IS DEAD OUT MAY 29
The Foxies have built their uniquely feral brand of rock ‘n’ roll out of thrashing punk energy and the hypnotic pageantry of electronic pop. Late last month, the Nashville-based power trio released their new single “Anti Socialite,” an anthem for social exhaustion that will appear on their upcoming EP Growing Up Is Dead, due out May 29. The music video for the single features the legendary John Oates as a high school gym teacher who stakes a claim for the castaways of a world gone social media mad.

On “Anti Socialite,” distorted guitars, pounding drums, and scintillating splashes of synth serve as the backdrop for lead singer Julia Lauren Bullock’s songbird vocals. “It’s the anthem to what everybody battles with all the time,” says Bullock. “I get FOMO real bad, but now I’m finally okay with doing my own damn thing. It’s the anthem of being like, ‘I don’t give a fuck what anybody else is doing. I’m happy right here by myself, and I’ll throw a party with my imaginary friends. You’re more than welcome to come!’”

The video was produced by Morgan Swank, directed by Wrenne Evans and premiered today at Alternative Press.

As they produced Growing Up Is Dead, Alex and Sean Silverman drew on the band’s euphoric (but snarling) live shows to develop a brand new sound they affectionately call “goth disco.”

“I’m a very visual person,” Bullock explains, “and every song somehow made me think of a vampire nightclub.”

Growing Up Is Dead marks a new chapter for a band that proudly proclaims that growing up might be dead, but rock sure ain’t. The Foxies will be hitting the road later this summer to support the release. Show dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
