Red Fang are streaming their brand new album Whales and Leeches in its entirety via YouTube along with exclusive video commentary. Check it out here.
Additionally, Spin Magazine has named the record album of the week and is streaming it in full along with an exclusive Q&A and track-by-track with the band's Aaron Beam (vocals/bass) and David Sullivan (guitars) here.
Red Fang recently launched a new video game -- a virtual beer shot-gunning challenge for fans. Play and share here.
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.
Red Fang are currently on the road in support of Whales and Leeches and will be heading to Europe in early 2014 as well. See below for a complete list of tour dates.

“Queens of the Stone Age-meets Mastodon. …a violent one, from its burly riffage to its apocalyptic lyrics.”
“Whales And Leeches; the 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.”
“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.
“While inherently heavy and sonically adventurous, at the heart of every Red Fang album there are hooks and fist-in-the-air choruses that are among the most accessible and unshakable in the underground.”
“Red Fang are primed for a breakout this fall with their new album, Whales and Leeches, a blistering hard rock release that should translate well to the live stage.’
