Fox Jaw Bounty Hunters debut album 'The Devil In Music' is OUT NOW!
Available on iTunes and in all good music stores nationwide (Rep. of Ireland Only).

With two EPs under their belt, this band has left a sense of anticipation in the air with their live shows as of late, with fans always wanting more. 2010 saw the band return to the studio to record their debut album with long time friend Owen Lewis, who has worked with such acts as REM, Flogging Molly, Hole, Snow Patrol, Paulo Nutini & more. Now after months locked away behind closed doors, perfecting every last second for the armada of songs that is their debut album, entitled The Devil In Music.

Fox Jaw Bounty Hunters from Limerick City, is made up of four gentleman; Ronan Mitchell (vox/guitar/keys), Morgan Nolan (guitar/b.vox/keys), Shane Serrano (drums/b.vox/clarinet) and Sean O’Mahony (bass/b.vox). Despite their ages, they have many years experience in the world music scene, churning out music to the masses, from punk rock and metal to traditional Irish. In late 2007, after years of touring with their past bands, they found themselves together in a practice room, collectively-minded, agreeing that they had exhausted their current projects.

Undefeated and heavily inspired, they created Fox Jaw Bounty Hunters; a rock and roll band with a seductive and gloomy sound, ignoring all trends of the current music scene. A band with a long and varied list of influences that blend and create songs from unstoppable head bopping to horror harmonies and sublime silence.

Fox Jaw Bounty Hunters are pretty much a well oiled machine by this stage. From being fresh out of the studio at the beginning of the year, they have since released 3 singles, released the highly critically acclaimed debut album 'The Devil In Music', embarked on countless tours across Ireland including a quick string of dates in London despite the apocalyptic riots! Many festival appearances including being added to the Main Stage at Indiependence Festival to share the boards with Editors, Ash, ASIWYFA & Therapy? They were added to the lineup of Guinness Arthur's Day 2011 performing to a sold out crowd at Limerick's Big Top. They have had their music picked up by Becks Vier for a TV advertising campaign, featured on a special edition flip cover of Hotpress Magazine, Ireland's premier music magazine, featured on the Jagermeister Freezer Sessions Compilation CD and Tour, was invited on the IMRO Showcase 20th Anniversary tour, 'Album Of The Year' nominations, countless amounts of airplay, music video broadcasts, radio sessions, interviews, reviews and made many new fans made along the way, most notably 2FMs Dave Fanning, Dan Hegarty & Cormac Battle. The list goes on and on... And their year isn't even over yet.

Fox Jaw Bounty Hunters released the long-awaited LP 'The Devil In Music' on May 20th 2011.

PRESS QUOTES

“(The Devil In Music) A serious contender for album of the year!”
- Alan Jacques LIVE 95FM

"a record that's diabolically good in many respects ... its complexity ensures that it is most certainly an opus that rewards the listener ... clearly the devil really does have all the best tunes"
- HOTPRESS

"The music has a deep growl, and dirty backdrop and you can almost imagine the wildness and humidity of New Orleans, and the polarised and confused religious fundamentalism being drowned out by the Devil’s best tunes ... From start to finish, the album oozes quality"
