Red Fang to Release Fourth Album
On Oct. 14, Red Fang will release their fourth album. It will be the first full-length from the Portland, Ore.-based stoner metal band since Whales and Leeches arrived in 2013. As of now, the title of the record has not been announced.
This weekend, the band posted the teaser video embedded below to their Facebook page. Metal Injection notes that they've been working with Ross Robinson, best known for his work with Korn, Limp Bizkit and Slipknot at the birth of the nu metal movement of the mid-to-late '90s.
In the interim between records, Red Fang have kept themselves in the public eye with a handful of EPs and singles, including a three-song acoustic set, a couple of tracks promoting their Toyota Scion-sponsored tour and another single where they put new chords to Elvis Presley's "Can't Help Falling in Love" and backed it with "Why" from Fraggle Rock.
Whales and Leeches was Red Fang's biggest record to date, having reached No. 66 on the Billboard 200. their first appearance on the chart. The video for its second single, "Blood Like Cream," featured Portlandia star and drummer Fred Armisen. It also included keyboard work from Roger Joseph Manning, Jr., best known for his work with the early '90s power pop band Jellyfish and Imperial Drag.
Next month, Red Fang will play a few dates in Europe, then head back home in time to play Portland's Northwest Hesh Fest on Sept. 22. A few days later, they will return to Europe for a month-long stretch of dates. You can get complete information at Red Fang's website.
