Foxing is an American rock band from St. Louis, Missouri. They have been described as indie rock and post-rock. The Albatross, their debut LP, has been described as chamber rock, emo, indie rock, math rock, and post-rock, reminiscent of American Football, Dads, Empire! Empire! (I Was a Lonely Estate), and The World Is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die. Dealer, their second LP, has been described as emo, indie rock and post-rock.

Foxing began in 2011 following the end of the group Hunter Gatherer, a post-rock band active from 2008 to 2010 that featured Josh Coll, Jon Hellwig and Matthew Piva. The initial lineup shortly expanded to include Conor Murphy, who was then the bassist of the active emo group Family Might and formerly the vocalist of the indie/post-rock band Torchlight Red. It also included guitarist Ben Helman of the melodic post. punk band Eagle Scout. By the end of summer 2011, Helman left the group, and Jim Fitzpatrick of Muscle Brain took his place. The band then proceeded to record the "Old Songs" EP in January 2012. Foxing's lineup changed again with the replacement of guitarists Piva and Fitzpatrick with Samuel Naumann of Torchlight Red in March 2012 and Ricky Sampson of the emo/math-rock group Badgerhunt in April. Naumann soon departed the band in May 2012, and Thomas Pini, who was the lead vocalist and guitarist of Family Might, filled the place. Foxing released the previously recorded "Old Songs" in August 2012. In February 2013, Foxing released a split with Send Away Stranger on the Saint Louis-based DIY label Carucage Records and another split with Japanese Breakfast. That same month, Pini left the group to be succeeded by Eric Hudson of Torchlight Red, Family Might, and Jimshorts. In March 2013, Foxing embarked on their first tour through the Midwest, within which they were signed to Count Your Lucky Stars records on the final night.

Foxing released their debut album, The Albatross, in November 2013 through Count Your Lucky Stars. In 2014, they signed to Triple Crown Records. Triple Crown released a remastered version in May. In spring of 2014, alongside Adventures, Foxing supported Seahaven on their spring tour. Also in 2014, Foxing embarked on a summer headlining tour alongside The Hotelier. In October of 2014, Foxing supported Brand New on their fall headlining tour, immediately followed by a supporting stint opening for Modern Baseball on their fall headlining tour. In summer 2015, they were a part of the tour supporting Philadelphia band mewithoutYou's new album Pale Horse. Also in the summer, The Albatross was released in the UK. On August 3, it was announced that the band's second album, Dealer, would be released in the fall through Triple Crown. Dealer reached number 3 on the Billboard Vinyl Albums chart. Triple Crown released a promotional song from the album on their official soundcloud: "The Magdalene". Foxing headed on a co-headling tour that winter along with The World Is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die. « hide
