WHALES AND LEECHES--due out October 15 on Relapse Records--is gaining momentum as Revolver magazine hailed, “Queens of the Stone Age-meets Mastodon. …The new Red Fang album is a violent one, from its burly riffage to its apocalyptic lyrics.” Stereogum added: “Whales And Leechesthe thing just stomps from the first drum hit, but when it shifts into the brain-frying bridge two-thirds of the way through, it takes flight and soars” (8/27/13). Meanwhile Alternative Press said, “Whales And Leeches is…bigger, bolder, heavier catchier and even more savagely fun‘Crows in Swine’ turns fluid, Mastodon-like metal into a venom-fanged hook-fest, and ‘This Animal’ uses grungy licks to dirty up its classic-rock songcraft. But the centerpiece is ‘Blood Like Cream.’ As brutally bacchanalian as a Viking on shore leave, it’s an infectious reminder of what Queens of the Stone Age once sounded like-and how powerfully Whales And Leeches makes the case for Red Fang’s sludgy godhood”  (October 2013).

Masters of the hard rock hook, RED FANG--BRYAN GILES (Guitar/Vocals), AARON BEAM (Bass/Vocals), DAVID SULLIVAN (Guitar) and JOHN SHERMAN (Drums)--worked with producer Chris Funk (Decemberists) and mixer Vance Powell(White Stripes, Raconteurs, Kings of Leon). This same team worked on the group’s last album Murder the Mountains (April 2011), which sold over 50,000 albums under the radar and allowed the band to tour with sold-out shows and attract rabid fans for over two years. With the help of guests Mike Scheidt (Yob) and Pall Jenkins (The Black Heart Procession)WHALES AND LEECHES propels RED FANG into the upper stratosphere of hard rock and metal elite.

 

In tech news, the band has launched a new video game--a virtual beer shot-gunning challenge for fans--and if enough users share the game, they’ll be able to unlock the new RED FANG track “Behind the Light.” Play and share here: http://beer.redfang.net.
