UK trio Black Foxxes have premiered their video for "Whatever Let's You Cope".
The video is a gorgeous visual accompaniment to the single, which comes from the band's debut LP, “I'm Not Well”, due August 19 via Search and Destroy // Spinefarm Records.
Frontman Mark Holley spoke about the story behind the song - "I wrote this song 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, as I was reaching the footpath I saw a woman lying on a bench- she had a bottle of vodka clasped by her feet. Once I had passed her, it was obvious she was under the influence of something else as well," he said.
"It was a surreal contrast to see this beautiful, idyllic scenery with this lady at the forefront of it. It really stuck in my mind. The song is about the illness of addiction and the moment the drug hits," Holley adds.
The band, who have just finished up tours with buzzy acts Milk Teeth and Nothing But Thieves, have an upcoming tour in the UK with Lower Than Atlantis. Following that, Black Foxxes will travel to the States this September for a handful of dates that include New York City and Brooklyn, The Viper Room in LA and an appearance at Chicago's Riot Fest.
