Math rock boys Oxes are set to release their album The Fourth Wall on November 27, 2020 via conceptual label Computer Students. For those new to the group, Oxes formed in 1998 and broke up around 2011. They were primarily an experimental, instrumental, and post-hardcore trio hailing from Baltimore, Maryland, comprising of guitarists Marc Miller and Nat Fowler, and drummer Christopher Freeland.
Oxe’s sets verged on performance, incorporating wireless guitars and stand-up comedy, they describe their music as “heavy metal tone poems.” The Fourth Wall is a deluxe double vinyl remastered by Sarah Register that commemorates the 20-year anniversary of the release of their first LP.
It features the original self titled album and the group’s first Peel Session — which was previously unavailable in high fidelity — as well as a booklet featuring never-before-seen photos and texts about their history.
The collection will be available in a superb gatefold cover painted by Christopher Freeland and an imposing 12-page booklet, all housed in a spectacular, futuristic heat-sealed aluminum sleeve.
It is not with great pleasure that New Noise is premiering for you today, a sample track off of the forthcoming album, “Riki Creem Calls This One ‘Chivas Regal’.” Check out the stream below:
