Absolute Music Bunker Session tracklist:
1. Failure (Acoustic)
2. Human Herd (Acoustic)
3. Malverde (Acoustic)
4. Failure (Album Version)
5. Human Herd (Album Version)

Additionally, the band recently shot a music video for their new song The Meadows from their Scion A/V 7” released in May. The video was directed by David Brodsky (Kylesa, Helmet, Municipal Waste) and will premiere shortly.
RED FANG are gearing up for another month long European tour including numerous festival appearances like Pukkelpop, Lowlands Festival and Reading and Leeds Festival. The shows kick off on July 25th at Rock Im Wald in Germany and end August 23rd at Leeds Festival in the UK. Upon their return, the group will be playing Bumbershoot Festival in Seattle, WA alongside Elvis Costello, Wu-Tang Clan, The Replacements and many others.
RED FANG have been making waves with their latest album,Whales And Leeches, recently performing their single Blood Like Cream on The Late Show With David Letterman (Watch the clip here) and releasing another one of their signature, hilarious music videos directed by longtime collaborator Whitey McConnaughy for the same song (Watch it below).
RED FANG are generating critical acclaim from SPIN, Revolver, Magnet, Alternative Press and more for their new album which was produced by Chris Funk (Decemberists) and mixed by Vance Powell (White Stripes, Raconteurs, Kings of Leon). Featuring such guests as Mike Scheidt (Yob) and Pall Jenkins (The Black Heart Procession), Whales And Leeches propels RED FANG into the upper stratosphere of the heavy rock and metal elite.
