Since forming in 2014, Palehound — fronted by singer / songwriter Ellen Kempner – has taken their plainspoken, technique-heavy indie rock from the basements of Boston to festivals around the world.
The band’s critically acclaimed 2015 debut album, Dry Food, landed them on numerous “Best Of 2015” lists with NPR, VICE’s Noisey, Paste Magazine, The Observer, Consequence Of Sound, The Boston Globe, The Austin Chronicle + many more. Since then the band has toured virtually non-stop, headlining club tours in both the US and the UK, as well as going out with Torres, Bully, Mitski, PWRBTTM and a variety of other bands, developing a ferocious live set in the process
The band’s sophomore album, A Place I’ll Always Go, is out June 16, 2017 on Polyvinyl Record Company.
Wax Fang is the nom de plume of producer, composer, and multi-instrumentalist, Scott Carney. It began as a solo project with 2005’s Black & Endless Night, an albume-ette of quirky pop songs, grew into a three piece band for both 2007’s neo-classic rock non-cept album, La La Land, and 2012’s brooding Mirror, Mirror EP before becoming a two piece recording project for 2014’s space-rock opera, The Astronaut. Returning from an extended hiatus from performing live, the newest incarnation features Astronaut collaborator/co-producer Corey McAfee and a rotating cast of characters filling out the lineup.
