Red Fang Release New Song “Arrows”
Lemme get a Kool Aid Man-style “OH YEAH!”: Red Fang have announced that they’ll release a new album, Arrows, on June 4 via Relapse. They’ve also released the title track.
Red Fang has never let us down before, and they ain’t starting now; this is stoner metal with a big hook and an epic final minute. A++++ WDBWA.
You can listen below. The music video, directed by longtime Red Fang collaborator Whitey McConnaughy, is also a winner.
Says guitarist/vocalist Bryan Giles of the album, which reunites the band with producer Chris Funk (Murder the Mountains, Whales and Leeches):
“It was so gratifying to put these songs on tape with Funk! It felt very comfortable with a loose schedule. We didn’t take it one song at a time, but added guitars, vocals, or general weirdness whenever an idea sprang to mind. We busted out a hurdy gurdy! It was that fun. Long live Rock!!”
Addis vocalist/bassist Aaron Beam:
“WOW! We are SO EXCITED to finally release this record to the world! We finished the album way back in December 2019 and then… something happened that is not worth discussing… Making this record felt totally loose and easy. It felt like we were just doing whatever the fuck we wanted, and not overthinking anything. That attitude reminded me a lot of what it felt like to make Murder the Mountains. The result doesn’t sound anything like MTM, but it has more of that vibe.”
