Pyrofox backstory

New kids on the hard rock block? Not quite.

Pyrofox rose from the ashes of pre-pandemic cult favourites Black Tree Vultures — single Ode To Joanna broke through in 2019 before arch shredder Aaron Hammersley hit reset.

It was a bold move.

Pyrofox exploded onto the scene at the start of 2023 with charismatic frontwoman Tegan Jones ramping things up from behind the mic.

And after debut single Animal caught fire towards the end of last year, it’s been a case of what’s next for the south coast trailblazers?

2024 has seen Pyrofox open up for Rushonrock-approved hair metal throwbacks Collateral and last Friday saw the band headline Norwich’s Brickmakers.

With bassman Ben Hussey joining Hammersley and Jones, the band’s core line-up screams peak Halestorm. They’re that good.

In Pyrofox’s own words

“We had a lot of fun recording Colourblind, particularly the video!

“It was our first song we finished writing together as a band, so getting to release it feels like sharing our beginnings with everybody.

“It’s heavy, hard hitting, and the music really reflects that toxic vibe the lyrics portray.”

The verdict on Colourblind

Taking their cue from Lzzy Hale, Alter Bridge and Shinedown, Pyrofox mix a Molotov cocktail of molten rock on the super-catchy Colourblind.

There’s no doubt Tegan Jones has the pipes and the presence to propel these furious fast-risers into the riffosphere.

And it seems as though all the hard yards have finally paid off for blazing six stringer Aaron Hammersley.

One of the UK’s most exciting emerging guitarists has found the perfect foil in pocket rocket Jones and Colourblind’s high octane clip captures the true potential in a fledgling partnership.

There’s never been a better time to jump aboard the UK’s burgeoning hard rock rollercoaster.

Pyrofox have seen the light and Colourblind’s their bold vision.

What’s next for Pyrofox

The gigs keep stacking up for Jones and co. with a trip to Barnstaple’s Rabbit Hole next on July 13.

Support slots with Smoke Over Elsewhere and Feral Sun map put a busy August.

And a headline show at London’s Cart and Horses on September 7 has ‘must-see’ written all over it.
