Foxing’s discography, including their 2013 breakout debut The Albatross, is one that can be slow-moving but with purpose. Nearer My God took the band nearly three years to complete, but that time was well spent re-focusing on the future of Foxing. What preceded Nearer My God’s newfound energy was the emotional and physical fatigue that came from years of their relentless drive. 

Their last album, 2016’s Dealer, helped push the St. Louis group to entirely new heights; Pitchfork instantly dubbed it “an artistic triumph,” it debuted at #3 on Billboard’s best-selling vinyl chart, and the band spent nearly 2 years off and on the road in support of it. The patience pays off, though; Nearer My God feels like an entirely refreshed Foxing, even if they never really needed much refreshing in the first place.

Earlier this summer, Foxing released the first of four episodes of a limited podcast series called Nearer My Pod. Hosted by Dan Ozzi (Noisey), Nearer My Pod is an in-depth look at the making of the new Foxing album Nearer My God, featuring insight from band members Conor Murphy, Eric Hudson and album producer Chris Walla (Death Cab For Cutie, The Decemberists.)
