Relapse Records has announced the signing of Portland, Oregon's RED FANG. The band recently completed recording its as-yet-untitled sophomore album with producer Chris Funk (THE DECEMBERISTS) for an early 2011 release. The CD was mixed by Vance Powell (THE RACONTEURS).
RED FANG (Brian Giles on guitar, vocals; Aaron Beam on bass, vocals; David Sullivan on guitar, vocals; and John Sherman on drums) formed in 2005 and has released a critically acclaimed self-titled debut full-length in 2009.
RED FANG commented on the signing: "We are f'ing stoked to sign a deal with Relapse.
"We had a great time recording with Chris Funk.
"Mixing was finished back in February/March and now we are ready for it to hit the streets.
"We're still brainstorming a title for the unnamed beast. ...and holy shit, get ready for new videos!"
RED FANG's video for the song "Prehistoric Dog" was one of the more buzzed about videos on the web last year. The clip was directed by Whitey McConnaughy (THE GOSSIP, MUDHONEY, FLOGGING MOLLY, TUBRONEGRO) and can be viewed below.
RED FANG will embark on three-week U.S. tour next month alongside VALIENT THORR.
