Red Fang return this fall with their as-yet-untitled third studio album on Relapse Records.

The Portland-based group is currently in the studio finishing the disc with the producer Chris Funk (Decemberists) and mixer Vance Powell (White Stripes, Raconteurs, Kings of Leon).

This same team worked on their last album Murder the Mountains, tagged by NPR as “a sleeker style of riff-heavy metal” (April 2011) and Alternative Press magazine as “a near masterpiece of tangled tar pit riffs and whisky-and-bong-hit vocals” (April 2011).

“We’re hyper excited about this new album. The basic tracks are like rabid monkeys we’re wrangling at Type Foundry in our hometown of Portland, OR. Producer Chris Funk has almost been amputated twice. Surprise guests abound! We’re in the final moments before all systems are go on this sucker. Dig people!”    -Red Fang

On Friday, May 24th, the band will head to the Gorge Amphitheater outside Seattle for their first festival appearance this year at Sasquatch!

The band will then hit the road for European trek through mid July with festival stops at Sonisphere, Download, Hellfest, Reload, Full Force, Open Air and Eistenaflug among others. Expect the group to announce a full U.S. run for late summer.

From the release:

Formed in 2005, RED FANG--Bryan Giles (Guitar/Vocals), Aaron Beam (Bass/Vocals), David Sullivan (Guitar), John Sherman (Drums)--has two albums under their belt: their 2009 self-titled debut on Sargent House and 2011’s Murder the Mountains on Relapse Records. Listen to both of the above albums streaming on www.redfang.bandcamp.com.  RED FANG quickly became known for their series of hilarious videos directed by Whitey McConnaughy (Band Of Horses, Flogging Molly, Turbonegro). Each clip was picked up by Reddit and went viral, garnering over 1 million+ views. Click to experience the group’s “Wires” and “Hank Is Dead” videos and expect more good time clips in the coming months.
“Wires”

The band spent the past few years touring the world and wining over audiences at clubs and festivals like All Tomorrow’s Parties, Rock on the Range, Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival and Metallica’s Orion Music & More Fest.  After more high-profile tours with Mastodon, Dillinger Escape Plan, Helmet, Saint Vitus and more, the band expanded their global footprint with a European trek and festival appearances across the continent. 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 humor, catchy songwriting and independent attitude--are sure to turn a few heads in 2013 and beyond.
