2013 was a fantastic year for all of us here in Guy Fox- the release of a new EP, the biggest Elkfest yet and our first national tour stick out as highlights, along with the beginning of a new cycle of recordings. We'll be releasing new singles throughout the year and we're already extremely happy with the results. You can hear the first of those, The City Line, on soundcloud HERE.
The first two shows of 2014 are completely FREE! Coming up first is Wednesday, 1/15 at SF's Milk Bar (RSVP HERE for free entry), a shockingly fun place to play and experience live music, with fellow locals Bonnie & the Bang Bang. We'll also be playing our first Oakland show in ages at Awaken Cafe for Art Murmur on 2/7.
We're also incredibly stoked to be heading up to Portland for the first time on 2/21 at Dante's, which should be a blowout! Stay tuned for other Northwest tour dates around that one. Further down the line we've got a return at Bottom of the Hill in March and a very special set of gigs as part of the UnderCover series in April.
That's all for now, but keep your eyes peeled for more single releases in the next few months!

We're all very excited to share our latest creation with all of you on December 5th at SF's Brick & Mortar Music Hall. The tune is called The City Line, and it's yet another effort with our producer/engineer/general wizard/unofficial 5th member of the band James Riotto made over a long weekend at Tiny Telephone Studios. We're spending a few days in there every month and will be releasing our first full length album once we have enough music!
We'll be celebrating with two great local acts Bonnie and the Bang Bang and Growwler. I honestly think this is the best sounding track we've made yet and hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed making it!

We're incredibly excited to be throwing down for our third annual Elkfest! This has quickly turned into one of the best nights of the year for us and its looking to be the most legit lineup yet, including Elkfest mainstays Tumbleweed Wanderers, as well as Waterstrider (afro-psych), Cha Ching (cumbia, salsa, hip-hop), and Cowboy Starr (rock).
Attendance has skyrocketed year by year so we've had to limit the tickets available for sale- PLEASE buy in advance so you don't get turned away at the gates. Buy tickets HERE.
More info can be found at the Facebook event page.
As with previous Elk-outings, food and music start at sundown and go well into the night. We also recommend getting there nice and early in the day to lock down a good camping spot and to engage in all the festivities. See yall then!

It's been an incredibly exciting summer for all of us here in Guy Fox... our first national tour, our first festival performance, and of course most recently, Petey's first performance in drag (Girl Fox) which was accompanied by our first (but hopefully not our last?!) Fiona Apple cover.
We're really excited to be taking all this momentum and using it creatively. We've got a bunch of days booked back in Tiny Telephone recording studios over the next few months and have started amassing a collection of new tunes for you all, the first of which we'll be debuting on FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 6th at the RICKSHAW STOP! It's a fanastic venue and we'll be joined by L.A.-based badasses Harper Blynn and locals The Visibles, who will be releasing their new LP. Get your tickets HERE.
Oh, and in case you missed it... this ACTUALLY happened.
...Guess you had to be there?

Very excited to be teaming up yet again with Ghost & the City at Bottom of the Hill. Joining us will be Fortress Social Club from LA. We have some VERY special plans for the set but don't want to give too much away yet... watch this space!
10,000 miles, 30 states, 20 shows, 5 weeks. Our first tour was an amazing adventure! We want to thank all of the new and old friends who helped us along the way and gave us shelter and love along the way. Special thanks to Will, Jake, Hannah, Kevin x2, Brittany, The Harpers, The Waterses, Nils, The Granquists, The Witherbees, Charlie and Lauren, Molly, SeaBassTion, The California Girls in Marfa (Tavahn, Alex, Anthony), Steve Holzer, Allison and anyone else who we have forgotten!

Greetings from the salty plains of Utah. We've recently added two new shows that aren't up on the official tour poster... so a heads up for:
5.28 | THE BIRD | Jackson, WY
6.1 | Underground Lounge | Chicago, IL
Also... a MASSIVE SHOUT-OUT to everybody that donated to our Kickstarter Campaign!!!! We've already reached our target, but still have close to three days to go... everything raised from here on out will go towards the recording of a new single when we get back to the Bay.
May 19, 2013
Here are the dates for our national tour. There might be one or two additions along the way so check here for updates!
If you're interested in helping us make our way across the country and back, we've begun a KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN. There are some great awards on offer and the money will be huge towards helping us reach a wider audience across the country.

We're just a few short weeks away from our EP release party with our buds the Tumbleweed Wanderers (who, incidentally, are ALSO releasing a new EP) at one of the bay area's finest venues. After a few months in and out of Tiny Telephone Studios we've finally wrapped these recordings up, and we're incredibly excited to show them to everybody!
The extended radio silence on the site is also due to the fact that we've been spending most of our time booking a national tour for this summer- we've already locked down dates all the way across the country and back, but there are a few stragglers... the full lineup will be released in not too long so stay tuned for details!

We're all incredibly excited to be back at the Rickshaw Stop on Friday, Feb 22nd. We're co-headlining with a brilliant local act The Seshen, who you really should check out it you haven't already! Also in support is another fantastic local artist Ash Reiter... we've had the pleasure of playing on some very strong bills in the past and this is right up there!
This is also a big night for us as we'll be releasing the first single from our forthcoming EP. The track is a major step up from all of our previous recordings and we're itching to share it with everybody! The Seshen will also be releasing a new track, so this is looking to be a big night!
You can grab tickets HERE.

First things first- huge thanks to the surprisingly rowdy group of folks that made it out to the Hotel Utah last night on such short notice. We had a blast grooving with you- it was a great way to prepare for a great little run of shows over the next week.
Part of that run will be opening up for the supremely talented Gin Wigmore this TUESDAY, JANUARY 22nd at Cafe du Nord. We haven't played there in a while and it's a treat to be getting things going for one of the hottest acts around- she'll be appearing on Jimmy Kimmel the following night! TICKETS HERE.
Also on the cards are another visit to San Jose, and a semi-Elkfest reunion in the wooded gulch of La Honda (east of Pescadero) on Saturday night. See you all out there!

Howdy folks. While the new year honeymoon/hangover period is probably behind us, all of the gentleman in Guy Fox are getting very excited for the next few months. Most pressing are shows with new buddies Brolly at the Hotel Utah January 16th, followed by a little jaunt down south to SLG Art Boutiki on the 18th (facebook event page HERE) and a two more shows to be announced shortly.
Also on the agenda:
Also, worth mentioning that our EP and latest single are now both available for FREE DOWNLOAD on our bandcamp page.

Without further ado... we're happy to share our newest recording with everybody! Please join us at SF's Bottom of the Hill this Friday, November 30th to come celebrate. We'll be joined by some fantastic local acts (links/details in the post below).
The single is AVAILABLE FOR FREE DOWNLOAD/STREAMING HERE, or you can stream it from the "music" tab on this site.

Yes yes, everybody! We're just about a week away from our biggest show to date. Bottom of the Hill has been extremely kind to us over the past year, providing a fantastic setting for us to support the Tumbleweed Wanderers and Bright Light Social Hour. This time out we'll be headlining for the first time and are celebrating by releasing a new single (our drummer/singer Petey's tune "Home"), available as a free download.
The lineup that's been put together is completely stacked! Semi-motown-revivalists Ghost & the City will also be releasing a new single (!!!), while the fantastically talented Picture Atlantic and Graham Patzner (of Whiskerman) will help ensure this is a night that isn't to be missed.
We also need to thank the 100s of people that made the trip out to this year's Elkfest a few weeks back. It was truly a special night, and something tells us that we'll see many of you next year in the woods for more live music, roast pig, slip'n'sliding, woodfire hottubbing and late-night dance partying.
See you all on November 30th! Get tickets in advance here.

Ah yes... it's that time of the year again. Last year's Elkfest was a truly special occasion, and we expect this year to be bigger and better in pretty much every way. November 3rd is the date of the next campout/festival/goat roast/bocce extravaganza, with Tumbleweed Wanderers and the Rainbow Girls in attendance on the musical side of things.
And in keeping with a short tradition, the boys in Guy Fox have put together a little musical invitation which can be viewed HERE. It may not be able to compete with last year's invitation for utterly bizarre vibes or Petey's unerring ability to stare at the camera without blinking, but we tried.
Full details can be found at the facebook event page-- the only necessities are a tent and $20, and rumor has it a bathing suit wouldn't be a bad idea...
