Fang’s For The Laughs


Rockers in bonkers new clip

Portland rockers RED FANG mess with the wrong comic book collectors in their new video for “Shadows,” which debuted via Funny or Die this morning.

“We had the pleasure of working with Whitey (McConnaughy) again on another music video,” the band’s singer/guitar player Bryan Giles says of the Predator-like clip. “It was a crazy adventure through the woods in rural Oregon. It has stunt men, real firepower and some great explosions! We had a blast on this one.”

‘Shadows’ is the sixth video to pair Red Fang and director McConnaughy; the first clip from the partnership was 2010’s “Prehistoric Dog”, which saw the Portland-based band challenge a local role playing troupe only to suffer the consequences. The most recent video from the band and McConnaughy is the 2013 clip featuring Fred Armisen and a horde of beer-thirsty zombies in “Blood Like Cream”.


Red Fang have also revealed a series of in-studio videos documenting their transformative experience working with legendary producer Ross Robinson (At The Drive In, The Cure, Slipknot, and many more) on their forthcoming new album Only Ghosts. The series is rolling out via Relapse Records’ YouTube page and can be viewed here. The band says the sessions marked “a huge leap forward for us” and add that they feel like “a better band for it.”

Consisting of 10 new tracks of Red Fang’s ‘s signature, high-impact, hook-filled, hard rock, Only Ghosts is set for release this October 14 on CD/LP/Digital via Relapse Records. Physical pre-orders are available via here, and digital pre-orders can be found at the band’s Bandcamp page at this location. The debut single from the album, “Flies,” can be heard now at this location.

Additionally, Red Fang’s music and likeness are featured on Pabst Blue Ribbon’s new pinball machine, the Can Crusher, which was unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con. The machine, developed in partnership with Stern Pinball, Inc., features a retro game design with art by Dirty Donny.

The band play an extensive autumn tour with a month of UK/European dates beginning at Brighton’s Concorde 2 on September 26, followed by another month of U.S. dates. Label mates Torche will join them on both runs with God Damn supporting in the UK and Whores joining the U.S. dates. Full UK dates can be found below.
