Black Foxxes and their fine new video
Black Foxxes arrive today with the stunning video for ‘Whatever Lets You Cope’ – the gorgeous visual accompaniment to the single, taken from the band’s debut album, ‘I’m Not Well’, due out August 19th viaSpinefarm Records.
Frontman Mark Holley talks openly about how the song is based on the troubles of drug addiction:- “I wrote it when I was staying in Pembrokeshire, in the most idyllic countryside village by the sea. On the last day, I went out for a walk along the coast, and as I was reaching the footpath, I saw a woman lying on a bench… she had a bottle of vodka by her feet. It was obvious she was under the influence of something else as well…
“It was a surreal contrast, to see this beautiful, idyllic scenery with this lady at the forefront. It really stuck in my mind. The song is about the illness of addiction and the moment the drug hits.”

Following this, the band return to the UK for their first ever headline tour; this will take them to Glasgow, Southampton and everywhere in between through the month of October. Tickets are on sale now.
