The Clox "Ready to Starve" CD Release Party

With very special guests Father of Sam |
You have seen them perform as special guests on shows of such artists as Mumiy Trol, Night Snipers, Lyapis Trubeckoj, The Clinic, and Toadies. Now The Clox would like to invite you to an official record release of their new album “Ready to Starve”. The album is available on ITUNES () and on Amazon.
The Clox and their music posses a unique credibility that undoubtedly has great potential to bridge the gap between Indie Rock, Alternative, and Pop.
The Clox formed in Brooklyn, NY in 2007. The group was developed by Denis Orynbekov (vocals and lead guitar), Russell Bay(drums), Igor Reznik (Rhythm Guitar) and Alex Prokofyev (Bass). In Fall of 2009 quartet became a trio when Alex left the group, and Igor Reznik switched roles from playing rhythm guitar to playing the bass.
Even though currently The Clox is based out of New York City, originally the band got its roots in Kazakhstan in the year 2005. Denis Orynbekov, formerly a professional soccer player in his home country, started this project and instantly gained local press and fan recognition. In the year 2007 Denis moved to New York City with the bands drummer, Russell Bay, to pursue music.
In September of 2007, Russell and Denis met rhythm guitarist and songwriter, Igor Reznik. The three found themselves intrigued with each others personality and immediately decided that they wanted to pursue music together and evolve as a whole.
Their first independently produced album, “Ready to Starve” has been released in November of 2010.
