RED FANG cancel US Fall Tour and Louder Than Life appearance

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Wednesday, September 8, 2021 at 9:27 AM (PST)

RED FANG have announced today plans to cancel a slew of upcoming appearances out of caution over the current shit minefield that is American touring during a pandemic.

Unfortunately, our cautious optimism has turned into stark realism and we have decided to cancel our appearance at Louder Than Life festival and our upcoming Fall US tour in the interest of public safety. We feel it’s not realistic to play shows in a safe/responsible manner and the best thing to do is hang back and wait until the situation improves. Until then, take care of each other. Love, Red Fang.

Refunds will be available at point of sale.

The humorous hard hitting heshers newest album is called Arrows and it fuckin’ slaps like gym shorts commando balls. Kudos to the band for following their moral compass.

True rock believers RED FANG return with Arrows this year, scheduled for a June 4th release via Relapse Records. I am loving the super limited tape option which probably already sold out as I write this. As for the title track video…it is certainly humorous. Don’t goof with katana swords though, kids. I remember in social studies class years ago my buddy and I interviewed this sword master guy once who said he knew of a guy who played with one once drunk and like decapitated his St. Bernard or something super horrible and that story has scarred me for years. The bong chopping here is much more benign.

“It was so gratifying to put these songs on tape with Funk!” says guitarist/vocalist Bryan Giles of the album that was produced by longtime collaborator Chris Funk (Murder The Mountains, Whales and Leeches). “It felt very comfortable with a loose schedule. We didn’t take it one song at a time, but added guitars, vocals, or general weirdness whenever an idea sprang to mind. We busted out a hurdy gurdy! It was that fun.

Long live Rock!!”

“WOW! We are SO EXCITED to finally release this record to the world! We finished the album way back in December 2019 and then… something happened that is not worth discussing…,” adds vocalist/bassist Aaron Beam“Making this record felt totally loose and easy. It felt like we were just doing whatever the fuck we wanted, and not overthinking anything. That attitude reminded me a lot of what it felt like to make Murder the Mountains. The result doesn’t sound anything like MTM, but it has more of that vibe.”


News of the eagerly-awaited album, the band’s first collection in five years, arrives with a new chapter in the band’s unparalleled canon of Whitey McConnaughy-directed music videos as the foursome unveils a clip for“Arrows” ( “Arrows” finds Red Fang once again exploring creative ways to spend the label’s music video budget in a subtle nod to the band’s classic “Wires” video.

“His way of presenting us really works,” says guitarist David Sullivan of the band’s relationship with Whitey. “That first video he did for us for ‘Prehistoric Dog’ gave us a big jumpstart as far as the band getting popular. And we love working with him.” 

Arrows tracklist:


    1. Take it Back
    2. Unreal Estate
    3. Arrows
    4. My Disaster
    5. Two High
    6. Anodyne

Music Video: Red Fang – “The Meadows”

Posted by SeanB on Tuesday, August 12, 2014 at 5:48 PM (PST)

7inch_TemplatePortland, Oregon heavy metallers Red Fang have just released a new music video for their song “The Meadows.”  The video is pretty much hilarious as it chronicles the band getting all dressed up to shove absurd amounts of food down their gullets, in slow motion.   These guys usually put out pretty awesome videos, and this is no exception.  Just a warning though, if you’re feeling hungry you might want to put down a quick meal before you watch.  Or don’t because you might puke.

Anyways you can click right here to check it out.

Red Fang released The Red Fang EP for free back in May under Scion AV and you can find it here if you’re interested.  It included this song and another called “The Shadows.”  The band also released a full length called Whales and Leeches last October via Relapse earning their best sales and critical response to date.

Album Review: Red Fang – Whales and Leeches

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Saturday, December 28, 2013 at 4:06 PM (PST)


This record doesn’t really need any more press, considering it was one of the most anticipated of in recent muddy memory. I should be telling you to check out the newest from Nhor or Wolfheart…but still, Metal Riot has to chime in, since we are (dare I say) a somewhat reputable and popular site for all things hairy, hoary and goat whoring. It is hard to judge Red Fang on their own merits, because they are so hyped. If any band kind of gets saddled with the pressure to be the next Mastodon, Red Fang have sort of inherited the burden through sheer popularity. Let’s face it, imposing expectations on a band like that is kind of unfair and demanding. And God/The Devil/Gaia forbid a great band does get more popular, like The Sword. It often means they are subject to bitter, keyboard cowboy potshots. Sometimes this type of attitude leads to bands being more similar or insular, protected by stylistic similarity. Other times it means someone rebels and breaks the mold more.

In the case of Red Fang 3.0, they return hard with more rock n’ roll centric sludge metal, a fairly accessible but nonetheless non-pussified and burly sound that is impossible for bearded young men and women with IPA’s in hand to resist. Whales and Leeches isn’t as manic as their debut or Murder The Mountains but is probably better than both overall. There is no “Wires” but there are plenty of cuts that will stick to you like gorilla snot. “Blood Like Cream” was a great choice for a single, a mentally ill and obsessive feeling celebration that is kinda garagey. My favorite of the album is track #3, the Black Flag-level rollicking “No Hope”, with a simple bar fight bassline to kill for. When Red Fang buckle down and just plain deliver, it is the kind of straight pay off that explains their popularity. Now if more of their fans would discover similarly riff-centric and rocking albums like Castle’s fucking awesome Blacklands or the more doomy and emotionally draining but cathartic Lumbar record (for example), I’d be stoked.

Red Fang seeking extras to play drunk zombies…

Posted by tyrusrunyan on Friday, November 1, 2013 at 11:39 AM (PST)

redfangThe headline just about says it all. Portland, Oregon metal band Red Fang are looking for people to play drunk zombies for a music video. Since it’s location specific I normally wouldn’t post this kind of thing but that’s just super bad ass. If you are in the Portland, Oregon area get ourselves our there for this.

Relapse Records comments:
“You will be playing the part of a terrifying new breed of zombie, a beer zombie! These zombies will stop at nothing in order to consume beer. These zombies aren’t dead, just dead drunk. We will need your best stumbling drunk impressions for the camera as you run amok.

“We are looking for all types of people, young, old, men and women. If interested you need to email your name and phone number to (if possible, please include a photo of yourself) You will then be emailed the location and shoot time.

“Please try to bring at least 2-3 different wardrobe items. We will be outside all day, so dress weather appropriate. We would love it if you dressed a part, maybe a trashman, surgeon, business man, Quickie mart clerk, mechanic, mail man, etc. Anything will work but we’d love to have a wide range of looks, not all jean jackets and black jeans.

“If you have a favorite beer coozie, beer can helmet, beer bong, beer mug or any other drinking accessory please bring it with you.”

New Video: Red Fang – “Hank is Dead”

Posted by jessepac on Thursday, January 26, 2012 at 1:16 PM (PST)

Red Fang Murder The MountainsWhile we weren’t too pleased with Red Fang‘s last album Murder the Mountains, their intial burst onto the music scene was with the hilarious video for “Prehistoric Dog.” The gang has figured out that funny equals money, so the new track “Hank is Dead” sees the band try their hand at slapstick again.

The video starts with a man drinking a beer in a shower (a personal favorite activity of mine) and sees the band head to an Air Guitar battle for the ages.
