Portland, Oregon’s RED FANG are premiering their new video today on YouTube for “Hank Is Dead”, which is taken from their critically acclaimed release Murder The Mountains. RED FANG worked with director extraordinaire, Whitey McConnaughy on the video which can be viewed below.
Drummer John Sherman spoke about the “Hank is Dead” video:
“Another great concept from the brilliant mind of Whitey McConnaughy. This one came together super quick with the help of some insane Portland locals and their sick air guitar skills. We basically just threw a big party and had a blast while a bunch of cameras ran. That is my shower Aaron and Bryan and Bobcat are in at the intro, btw. It still has a weird ring around it…”
RED FANG are currently on tour in Europe with Mastodon. The tour runs through February 11th in London and includes RED FANG headline dates in addition to the shows with Mastodon.
RED FANG are streaming Murder The Mountains in its entirety at this location. The band recorded Murder The Mountains with THE DECEMBERISTS’ Chris Funk and the album was mixed by three-time Grammy Award winner Vance Powell (WHITE STRIPES, THE RACONTEURS). Murder The Mountains is now available on CD, 12″ vinyl, and deluxe digital. The album is available via Relapse HERE and on iTunes HERE.
