"Red Fox Run Looks to Barry Fey for Inspiration"

Red Fox Run plays bright, fresh-faced pop-rock songs that manage to avoid coming off as either cheeky or overly earnest — the kind of music, evidently, that makes Barry Fey glad he's no longer in the music business. The act got its start when friends Daniel Rondeau, Joshua Hester and Lucas Henderson started playing music together as Neighborhood Hero. In mid-2010, the trio got a new drummer — Olympia, Washington, native Tristan Ringering — who brought along his friend Matt Mosberg to fill out the low end on bass, and the revised lineup eventually dubbed itself Red Fox Run, a name that was stamped on boxes from an orchard in Palisade that Henderson's mother had bought at a farmers' market in Castle Rock. We sat down with the bandmembers recently to talk about their new album and their alleged run-in with Fey. - Westword


"Skeletons Review"

On Skeleton's title track, Red Fox Run's songwriting shows considerable growth, displaying a flair for dynamics and bombast and resulting in the kind of power pop made by acts like the Sweet. "Lucky Sevens," meanwhile, is imbued with jittery energy, sounding like the work of a latter-day post-punk band with a dash of introspection. "Rest Your Bones," a tune that speaks to secrets best exposed and remembered — rather than hidden in shame — as a path to psychological liberation, makes the overarching theme of the album clear. The song's repeated, expansive chorus plays like an incantation with which to drive out one's inner darkness. "Something Is Wrong" flutters with an inner flicker of fire, and "We All Got It" uses sin as a symbol and points to the things we need to forgive within ourselves and others. - Westword


"Red Fox Run [take]ctrl"

Red Fox Run channels the fine points of modern rock with their new album, [take] ctrl. The mixing and mastering on the album are very clean, making for a record that is easy to listen to and clean sounding. Their style is a bit of a mish-mash of Kings of Leon, Black Keys and garage rock bands like the Strokes and the Killers.

Strong guitar parts from Joshua Hester fit melodically behind Daniel Rondeau’s swooning but wildly untamed rock and roll voice. “Signs,” the third track on the album, stuck out the most with two very distinct guitar parts, and a 93.3-ish indie-rock sound that, while present throughout the record, stood out prominently in this song.

“I’m Okay” starts off with a picking guitar riff as Rondeau sings a slower song than most on the album. His voice at times reminds me of Jay Hernandez from Aloft in the Sundry. This record is a must-have for fans not only of indie rock, but mellow alternative bands like Coldplay as well. - Colorado music buzz


"Steal This Track"

"This band is a balance between the unbridled creativity we expect from an indie rock band, and the potential for mass appeal that behemoth labels hope for." - Josh Johnson HeyReverb.com - Hey Reverb


"Record Review"

by Tru Blu

Every now and again we get to review an album that’s time capsule worthy. If you were to find Red Fox Run’s self titled album 100 years from now under the rubble of Denver City and give it a listen you would know that they were making waves in this land locked town. Red Fox Run is Cold Play meets The Cure with a dash of The Pixies and Led Zeppelin sprinkled in and we get to claim them as a local band. We haven’t heard this before. As a collective unit their chemistry transcends formulaic convention and pushes boundaries with varied song writing and structure. As they say “We Don’t Make You Wait For The Good Parts”. They get the most out of every track with high impact lyrical content and each song sets itself apart as a stand-alone aha moment. Every time I listen I find a different favorite. Lead vocalist, Daniel Rondeau goes from wailing in full voice to tender falsetto as he weaves through the dramatic tempo changes and tone of each song.

From Track 1 – Didn’t See You There, the band challenges you to get on board and take notice. I Am A Fox is their psychedelic anthem with the lyric “I am a fox… I need to run”

Track 4 – Rollercoaster is a radio worthy triumph of love and spirit that will instantly suck you in.

Their frenzied In With A Bang shows off their punk roots and versatility. With this effort the band has landed smack dab in the middle of the upper echelon of local acts in the Denver music scene.

Red Fox Run is Rondeau – Lead Vocals / Rhythm Guitar, Joshua Hester – Vocals / Lead Guitar, Caleb Thoemke – Drums / Percussion, Seth Beamer – Vocals / Bass Guitar. They were supported on the project by contributing musicians Joe Richmond and Emma Cole, recorded by Kyle Parker Smith, produced and mixed by Joe Richmond, mastered by Jason Livermore at Blasting Room Studios . The album is on the CAM Records Label and you can hear the first single the Red Fox Run album, I Am A Fox, at redfoxrun.com. - Tru Blu

-Tom Murphy, Westword

After their debut release [take]ctrl in 2011 Red Fox Run had the privilege of playing shows and festivals with a handful of ear-perking bands such as Walk the Moon, Lord Huron, Mud Honey, The Outfit, and many more. In the midst of rigorous performances, Red Fox Run worked with Cherry Sound Records to record their second album Skeletons, in 2012. Since the release, Red Fox Run has appeared in several magazines including a front page feature of the Colorado Music Buzz, radio play on Denver's 93.3, and CPR's Open Air, while still busy performing and sculpting their vision of authentic rock. In 2015 Red Fox Run released their Self Titled sophomore full-length record. The release displays a mature side to the band that is both captivating and emotionally evocative.
