RED FANG will return this October with its third studio album titled Whales And Leeches on Relapse Records. For the new album, the Portland, Oregon-based group worked with producer Chris Funk (Decemberists) and mixer Vance Powell (The White Stripes, Raconteurs, Kings Of Leon). This same team helmed RED FANG‘s last CD, Murder The Mountains, which Alternative Press magazine hailed as “a near-masterpiece of tangled tar pit riffs and whisky-and-bong-hit vocals.”
The cover artwork for Whales And Leeches was designed by graphic artist Orion Landau. Check it out below!
Formed in 2005, RED FANG — Bryan Giles (guitar/vocals), Aaron Beam (bass/vocals), David Sullivan (guitar), John Sherman (drums) — has two albums under its belt: the 2009 self-titled debut on Sargent House and 2011’s Murder The Mountains on Relapse Records.
The band spent the past few years touring the world and winning over audiences at clubs and festivals all over the globe. 2013 promises to be the biggest year yet for the Portland, OR-based group who show no signs of slowing down. Their intense live performances — along with their unique brand of humour, catchy songwriting and independent attitude — are sure to turn a few heads in 2013 and beyond.
RED FANG quickly became known for its series of hilarious videos directed by Whitey McConnaughy (Band Of Horses, Flogging Molly, Turbonegro) and you can check out the video for ‘Wires‘ below.
