Since 2008, Able Baker Fox have been almost completely mum, barring a reunion performance at 2014’s Fest. That same year, Small Brown Bike and The Casket Lottery released a collaborative 12″ foreshadowing the future of their project. ‘Visions‘ picks up right where Able Baker Fox left off, following a long tradition of Midwestern/East Coast-tinged post-hardcore that wouldn’t have been out of place alongside Jade Tree’s early ’00-era roster. Just like many of their predecessors, the four-piece outfit tapped the legendary J. Robbins (Hey Mercedes, Dismemberment Plan, MewithoutYou, Jets to Brazil) to record the album in a four-day, marathon session at The Magpie Cage Recording Studio in Baltimore, Maryland.
Give it a listen below.
They will play three East Coast dates in December with tickets going on sale this Thursday at 9am.
The band recently released their latest single ‘Technology‘. Watch the video for the single below the tour dates.

The Faction Radio is available both through The Faction app and to over 1.3 million Australian music-lovers via the popular radio app iHeartRadio where it will shepherd the platform’s activity in heavy genres. The brainchild of heavy music company Collision Course, the project has been in planning for over a year, built on the back of a need to bring together the community for what is one of Australia’s most underrated genres.
“The metal community is one of the most passionate in the world and we have so much to celebrate – not just artists and music, but also a thriving live sector, amazing blogs and media and so many people with passion. We wanted to put it together and create a hub for that community which brings the genre into a mobile world. Through our partnership with iHeartRadio, we can now also use The Faction Radio to reach new metal fans and welcome them into our scene.“
