Originally a 3-piece, SixToes self-made debut album 'Trick Of The Night' was released in 2009 to critical acclaim with Uncut describing it as "Genuinely strange and original - SixToes possess an intricate, idiosyncratic beauty". Since then, the London based band have become a sextet, collaborated with Josh T. Pearson and Soulsavers (playing strings on 'Last of the Country Gentlemen' and 'The Light the Dead See' album respectively) and remixed the likes of Depeche Mode and Nick Cave. With the addition of 3 new members, SixToes have been quietly, yet busily honing and developing their sound through intensive, isolated jam and recording sessions in a remote makeshift studio in a disused barn in Norfolk. The result of these sessions is SixToes mark 2 and a new album, the forthcoming 'The Morning After', set for release in early 2014.
The first taste of The Morning After was revealed last month in the form of a new single, ‘Low Guns', which features guest vocals from Depeche Mode’s Dave Gahan and has already had over 30,000 plays on Souncloud. ‘Low Guns’ will be officially released in November on limited cassette and digitally. To mark the release SixToes play a sold-out headline show at St Pancras Old Church, London on the 20th of November.
In the run up to the release of ‘Low Guns’ SixToes have left advanced copies of the cassette single hidden at various locations around the world as part of an ongoing treasure hunt. Cassettes have already been found in London (St Pancras Old Church), Paris (The Louvre), Bristol (Clifton Suspension Bridge), Berlin (Themroc Bar), Manchester (Piccadilly Records and an Army Surplus Shop).

‘Low Guns’ is the sound of a band eschewing previously self-imposed rules and developing a more expansive, cinematic, focused and collaborative writing style; the track is brimming with personality like the characters on the London tube platform in the beautifully executed accompanying video.
Inspired by Straylight's mesmerising slow motion film Glide2 and directed by Henry Cowling, the ‘Low Guns’ video sees ordinary passengers frozen in time alongside make- believe military officials, dancers, showgirls, circus performers, as well as the band members themselves on the platform of Ravenscourt Park station in London as viewed from a passing high-speed tube carriage. Cowling shot the 'Low Guns' video at 500 frames per second, enabling 7 seconds of footage to be drawn out into 3 and a half minutes, meaning that the the shoot required meticulous planning to ensure the flashmob style cast of 40 volunteers moved according to plan during the very small window of time.
“Low Guns is sort of a snap shot in time; a moment of complete vulnerability,” adds singer David Greenep. “The soldiers represent natural barriers that I think we create to make sure that certain feelings will not come again.”
