Foxburrows formed as Fox in early 2013 featuring members of An Airbag Saved my Life and a former member of Coney Island from Oklahoma City. Within two months of writing material, Fox began playing shows on a regular basis beginning in summer 2013. In April 2014, after frequenting the Oklahoma City and Tulsa music scene for less than a year, Fox played their first show as Foxburrows during Norman Music Festival on the outdoor Opolis stage. On May 10th, 2014, Foxburrows released their Freshman EP Woodland Creatures at the Opolis. During the summer of 2014, Foxburrows did a short stint in the southern plains region of the United States in support of Woodland Creatures.

Foxburrows released their Sophomore album Tame in April of 2016 and continued playing shows throughout the rest of the year despite their founders relocation to Omaha, Nebraska.
