RED FANG Stream New Album ‘Only Ghosts’ in Full; Launch Tetris-Inspired “Fangtris” Game

Red Fang Fangtris

RED FANG, who release Only Ghosts tomorrow via Relapse Records, are now streaming the 10-song album in full (https://soundcloud.com/relapserecords/sets/red-fang-only-ghosts) following a week of song premieres via The Wall Street Journal, Nerdist, Loudwire, Relix and Kerrang. You can also stream the album via Metal Hammer / Team Rock HERE.

The band, currently touring Europe with a show in Cologne this evening, have also unveiled a 16-bit video game that can be found at www.relapse.com/fangtris. Fangtris is a twist on the classic Tetris game, inviting players to stack the band’s gear on stage before the show starts.

Only Ghosts was recorded earlier this year at Ross Robinson’s Venice, Calif. studio, with Robinson (At The Drive-In, The Cure, Slipknot) handling production and Joe Barresi (Queens of the Stone Age, Tool, Melvins) mixing the album. The band said of the experience, “Working with Ross and Joe on this record was a huge leap forward for us. The process was very challenging and rewarding, and I think we’re a better band for it. This album expresses exactly where we’re at. We’re super proud of it!”

Early reviews of the album affirm the sparkling results of the production partnership, with Nerdist dubbing Only Ghosts a “supremely excellent new album” while Metal Sucks offered, “…with Only Ghosts, they’ve delivered their freshest set of jams yet. On this new album, Red Fang are executing their songwriting at a deadly precision: their melodies are hookier, their compositions perfectly tweaked, their dual-throaty-vocal layers reaching an artful tier not really seen in the genre since Blood Mountain.”

In the week’s leading up to Only Ghosts’ release, the Portland-based rock band have also created a tremendously clever video about wronged comic book collectors seeking Predator-style vengeance (“Shadows”: https://youtu.be/cnhCxVy5pfs), partnered with Stumptown Coffee Roasters for a tour-only blend dubbed “The Deep” after the song of the same name, and lent their music to Pabst Blue Ribbon’s retro pinball machine, The Can Crusher.

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.
