Voxtrot Return With New Single ‘Another Fire,’ First New Song in 14 Years

“Just like old times, but unmistakably new,” frontman Ramesh Srivastava says of Austin indie-rock band’s reunion

Voxtrot return with their new single “Another Fire,” the Austin indie-rock outfit’s first new song in 14 years.

Following a series of acclaimed EPs and a 2007 self-titled album, the Ramesh Srivastava-fronted band called it quits in 2010. The last dozen years have seen the group’s fanbase expand, however, leading to a pair of archival releases in 2022 — Early Music and Cut from the Stone: Rarities & B-Sides — and now, their first new song together since they disbanded.

“I had a dream where we were onstage and it was really positive,” Srivastava said of the reunion in a statement. 

“There was such a strong and palpable feeling of love in my heart that when I woke up, it was still with me. I switched on my phone and started looking at things tagged with ‘Voxtrot’ on social media – teenagers covering our songs, people with Voxtrot tattoos – and just went down this internet rabbit hole that made me realize how much love there still is for the band. For the first time since we broke up, it seemed very, very obvious that we should do this.”


In early 2023, the five members of Voxtrot — Srivastava, Jason Chronis, Matt Simon, Mitch Calvert and Jared Van Fleet — reunited in a small Texas town to work on new material and see if the spark that made them so beloved a decade ago was still there.

“‘Another Fire’ is about personal and universal regeneration,” Srivastava added. “Hearing it come to life through my bandmates’ contributions was thrilling – just like old times, but unmistakably new.”
