Portland, Oregon's RED FANG will team up with director Whitey McConnaughy (THE GOSSIP, MUDHONEY, FLOGGING MOLLY) in the band's hometown today to begin work on the first video from the group's Relapse debut, "Murder The Mountain". The clip, for the song "Wires", will feature a special guest cameo from heavy metal comedian Brian Posehn.
RED FANG previously worked with McConnaughy on its much-talked-about video for "Prehistoric Dog".
"Murder The Mountains" will be released in North America on April 12 (April 18 internationally) on CD, 12-inch vinyl, and deluxe digital (available at iTunes). The band will also release "Wires" as a seven-inch and digital single in mid-March. The follow-up to the band's critically-acclaimed self-titled full-length was recorded with producer Chris Funk (THE DECEMBERISTS) and mixed by Vance Powell (THE RACONTEURS).
Two tracks from "Murder The Mountains" — "Number Thirteen" and "Wires" — can be heard on RED FANG's Facebook page as well as downloaded as part of the free Relapse Records label sampler.
RED FANG will hit the road next month as part of the "Metalliance Tour" alongside HELMET, ST. VITUS, CROWBAR, HOWL, and more. This trek will include a stop at the annual South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas. RED FANG will then perform at the Rock On The Range festival in Columbus, Ohio in May before heading out on another month-long U.S. tour in July as part of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival.
