Red Fang Announce Third Album 'Whales And Leeches' Due Out This October 2013

After performances at Sasquatch! as well as major European festivals all summer long includingSonisphere, Download, Hellfest, Reload, Full Force, Open Air and Eistenaflug, RED FANG have announced the first leg of their fall U.S. tour will kick off October 9 on the west coast (see dates confirmed below). Before the fall run--which features support from Helms Alee, Dog Shredder and Gaytheist--RED FANG will head to Missoula, MT to headline the 12th annual TotalFest on Saturday, August 17. The Portland, OR-based group that NPR tagged as "a sleeker style of riff-heavy metal" will return this Octoberwith their third studio album WHALES AND LEECHES on Relapse Records.

For the new album, the band worked producer Chris Funk (Decemberists) and mixer Vance Powell(White Stripes, Raconteurs, Kings of Leon). This same team worked on RED FANG's last albumMurder the Mountains which Alternative Press magazine hailed as "a near masterpiece of tangled tar pit riffs and whisky-and-bong-hit vocals" (April 2011).

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.

The band spent the past few years touring the world and wining over audiences at clubs and festivals likeAll Tomorrow's Parties, Rock on the Range, Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival and Metallica'sOrion 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 for RED FANG yet, with theirintense live performances, unique brand of humor, catchy songwriting and independent attitude-they show no signs of slowing down. RED FANG 2013 dates are below. Expect more dates to be announced soon.
