Portland Stoner Rock kings Red Fang have announced an online streaming event for July 30 at 7 pm PST – 10 PM EST, with the performance including songs from their recently released album Arrows as well as tracks from Murder the Mountains. Taking place at the legendary Mississippi Studios, the set will feature two segments in which 10 fans will join Red Fang for a live meet and greet at the venue (meet and greet spots are first come, first serve). The stream costs $5 and you can purchase at the link below!
While Red Fang’s fourth album immediately stands out as their first full-length since 2016’s Only Ghosts, it seems to hearken back to the Sludgy aspects of their earliest ventures. Tracks like ‘Unreal Estate’ and the title track reflect strong Melvins circa (A) Senile Animal vibes with their trudging riff patterns and eccentrically howled vocal lines. ‘Fonzi Scheme’ and ‘Days Collide’ elaborate further the former putting in a particularly potent stomp and the latter benefitting the most from the disorienting atmosphere.

Red Fang are stoner rock legends and technical innovators when it comes to viral marketing. The band has released a new single ‘Antidote’ through their own mobile phone app. Written and directed by Wieden+Kennedy creative Ansel Wallenfang. It is the world’s first music video game you have to headbang to play! The mid ’90s–style app, titled Red Fang: Headbang, is available globally for both Android and iOS using either a smartphone or tablet. A tutorial at the beginning teaches users how to appropriately headbang (hint, move your head with your hand/phone). If the user stops headbanging, Red Fang dies. The app features three alternate endings. Download the app, watch the video and a trailer for it below!Continue reading →
When Iowan trio Druids‘ EP Spirit Compass (Self-release) hit my ears sixteen months ago, I was staggered by the apparent ease with which the bandmelded the darkness of Sabbath and the violence of Mastodon with the joyous, Summery Grunge of Blind Melon. It made for a heady mix and new offering Monument (The Company) promises the same excitement amid a paradoxically heavy flexibility.Continue reading →
