RED FANG: Premiere Fraggle Rock Cover From Volcom 7”; Prepare Headlining Tour

Portland, OR hard rockers RED FANG have premiered a cover of the Fraggle Rock song “Why” in preparation for their upcoming headlining fall US tour with Whores and Wild Throne. The song can be streamed via Revolver Magazine HERE.
Originally recorded in 2013 and now appearing on the Fraggle Rock tribute album Shine On, the track will appear alongside a cover of Elvis’s “Can’t Help Falling In Love” on a limited edition 7″ to be released by Volcom in conjunction with the tour.  A preview of the cover art along with an extremely limited quantity of the press is currently available for pre-order via Relapse HERE. The full Fraggle Rock compilation, Shine On, is available digitally via iTunes HERE.
RED FANG’s Revolver Magazine-sponsored tour comes on the heels of the band’s recent European and Australian tours, and includes appearances at Slipknot’s Knotfest and Monster Energy’s Aftershock Festivals. This tour marks the last shows the band will perform in 2015 before heading into the studio to begin recording its new full-length next year. A complete listing of dates is available below.

Released via Relapse Records last year, RED FANG’s most recent album Whales and Leeches debuted at #66 on the Billboard Album Chart, marking the group’s highest sales week ever and first debut in the Top 200. Whales and Leeches, which was produced by Chris Funk (Decemberists) and mixed by Vance Powell (White Stripes, Raconteurs, Kings of Leon), has generated worldwide critical acclaim for the band from publications such as SPIN, Revolver, Magnet, Alternative Press and many more (soundbites below). Featuring such guests as Mike Scheidt (Yob) and Pall Jenkins (The Black Heart Procession), Whales and Leeches has propelled RED FANG into the upper stratosphere of the heavy rock and metal elite. The album can be streamed in full via the band’s official Bandcamp page HERE.

RED FANG recently premiered their new animated video for “Crows In Swine,” the third single off Whales and Leeches. The clip, which was animated and directed by Adam Avilla, can be viewed HERE.
