We got the chance to sit down with Foxtrax before their set at Antone’s, where they supported Barns Courtney. Connect with Foxtrax on Twitter @FoxtraxBand, or shoot ’em a text at +1 (516) 252-0199 NOA: Hi I’m Noa, I’m with Suede Publications and we’re here with Foxtrax. BEN (FOXTRAX): I’m Ben, I sing. JON (FOXTRAX): I’m Jon, I play drums. BEN: And Jared’s setting up the stage and doing some other stuff right now, but he plays bass. NOA: Well welcome back to Austin! I know the last time y’all were here was for South By; so tell us about your SXSW experience. This was your first one, correct? BEN: Yeah!

Noa (SUEDE): Okay so basically I guess we’re going to start from the very beginning. Where did The Ceremonies come from? Like how did it start, where did the name come from, we just want to hear everything about the beginning. Mark (TC): Where did it start? Well, it started in the room we’re in right now. Matte (TC): Well we’ve always been singing together since we were young and then it kinda naturally evolved into us playing charity shows and different things together at our high school. And then I was always in bands growing up, and Mark and Michael would sort of fill in whenever, like if our drummer didn’t come that day. ‘Cause in high school everyone was so flaky, I feel like. Mark (TC): We were the understudies! Matte (TC): So like they would fill in, and then conceptually I remember The Ceremonies came together probably my first year in college.
