RED FANG Launch Week of Song Debuts with “Living in Lye” via Wall Street Journal; Announce Stumptown Coffee Partnership
Portland rockers Red Fang, who release their new album Only Ghosts next Friday via Relapse, kick off a week of song debuts with the Wall Street Journal streaming “Living in Lye”. This week of premieres also includes partners Nerdist, Metal Hammer, Loudwire and more, and is accompanied by the news of Stumptown Coffee Roasters creation of a limited edition, Red Fang-inspired blend dubbed “The Deep,” in honor of the band’s song of the same name. Stumptown said of the partnership, “We’re stoked to collaborate on a blend with our buddies in Red Fang, who we’ve been friends with for many years.” The coffee will be sold exclusively on the upcoming U.S. tour (dates below) with more details forthcoming.
“Living in Lye,” the first track in the week of song debuts, has premiered via The Wall Street Journal and can be streamed at this location.
The band said about the coffee collaboration,
“We love Duane from Stumptown for so many reasons! He’s a rad dude who treats his employees very well, he is a super supportive metalhead, and has been making our favorite coffee in Portland since 1999. Now we have another reason to love him! He is making a custom Red Fang coffee! Wahoo! Time to get jacked up!”

After three years of vigorously touring the world, RED FANG, the beer-loving Portland-based rock band whose new album was included in Rolling Stone’s list most anticipated 2016 releases, re-emerge with their greatest and latest full-length album, Only Ghosts. Produced by the legendary Ross Robinson (At The Drive In, The Cure, Slipknot, and many more) and mixed by Joe Barresi (Queens of the Stone Age, Kyuss, Melvins), Only Ghosts consists of 10 new tracks of the band’s signature, high-impact, hook-filled, hard rock. RED FANG prove once again they are top-notch songwriters who have mastered the heavy anthem without taking themselves too seriously. Only Ghosts is a rock album of incredible magnitude that demands to be played at maximum volume!
Only Ghosts is set for release this October 14 on CD/LP/Digital via Relapse Records. Physical pre-orders are available via Relapse.com here, and digital pre-orders can be found at the band’s Bandcamp page at this location.
The debut single from the album, “Flies,” can be heard now at this location or below:
