Bristolian quartet PHOXJAW have released a video for ‘Teething’, the fourth single from their forthcoming debut album, Royal Swan, which is due for release on 3rd July 2020 via Hassle Records.
“Teething reflects the struggles we all face as human beings,” explains vocalist/bassist Danny Garland. “The nagging milk teeth erupting through sore gums, the challenges we all must face, and in this case the death of a friend. Some are taken sooner than others, but to celebrate life and the moments we experience with other beings makes the pain all worth it.”

‘Teething’ follows ‘You Don’t Drink A Unicorn’s Blood’, which saw recent support from Daniel P. Carter on the Radio 1 Rock Show and features on Kerrang! Radio’s K! Nights playlist. Previous single ‘Triple AAA’ has also been championed by BBC Radio 1’s Indie Show with Jack Saunders, Radio 1 Rock Show, Kerrang! Radio, Amazing Radio and more.

Born from a cabin-fevered recording experience at Devil’s Bridge in Wales, Royal Swan harks back to a fantastical medieval England. Without being overtly political, Royal Swan also details the tension inherent in modern day Great Britain – the sense of isolation and resentment the United Kingdom has fostered versus trying to retain a sense of pride in one’s own country. Listen out especially for the title-track and opening track for this.
To this end, and in classic PHOXJAW style, Royal Swan enlists a range of local musicians and sound-experiences, adding to the band’s core unique sound. Devil’s Bridge Cottage leaves its mark on the record, fostering PHOXJAW’s claustrophobic recording experience and physically shaping the sound, with each band member recording in separate rooms (and guitars in an airing cupboard).
Self-produced, with drums recorded by Lewis Johns, Royal Swan marks PHOXJAW’s step into the limelight following two highly respected EPs (2018’s Goodbye Dinosaur… and 2019’s A Playground For Sad Adults). A rare group who combine humour, quirk, intrigue, a huge range of influences, and power, PHOXJAW are a band who’ll never stop having things to say.
Having toured with Black Peaks, Pagan, Zakk Sabbath’s cruise, Loathe and plenty more already, PHOXJAW have begun making waves in the UK underground rock scene. Solid support from Kerrang!, Metal Hammer, Dan P Carter’s BBC R1 Rock Show, Jack Saunder’s BBC R1 Indie Show, Total Guitar Magazine and more has earmarked this band as ones to watch, and rightly so.
