The Clox formed in Brooklyn, NY in 2007. The group was developed by Denis Orynbekov (vocals and lead guitar), Ruslan Baimurzin(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, Ruslan Baimurzin, to pursue music.
In September of 2007, Ruslan 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.
The band played numerous times in some of the country's most legendary venues such as New York City's Filmore at Irving Plaza, New York City's Le Poison Rouge, New York City's Gramercy Theater, Boston's Middle East Downstairs, New York City's Hiro Ballroom, and Virginia's The State Theater, among others. The Clox have shared the stage with artists such as The Toadies, Clinic, The Gift, Mumiy Trol, The Night Snipers, Lyapis Trubeckoy, and others.
