RED FANG RETURN WITH ONLY GHOSTS

Red Fang, the fun-loving Portland-based rock band whose new album was included in Rolling Stone’s most anticipated 2016 releases, announce the Oct. 14 release of Only Ghosts via Relapse Records.

Only Ghosts was recorded earlier this year at Ross Robinson’s Venice, Calif. studio. In a recent Revolver Magazine interview, bass player Aaron Beam joked that the experience of working beachside was “pretty miserable,”later adding that working with Ross encouraged the band to take a different approach to recording.

“He really digs into the meaning behind the songs so that when you’re recording, you’re doing it with conviction and purpose. It’s less about the little technical things. He’s more concerned with getting a performance and focusing on what you’re trying to give the world by making this music in the first place.”

Red Fang have released three previous albums with the most recent being 2013’s Whales & Leeches. The 11-song album landed the band on The Late Show with David Letterman and in a world of trouble in the zombie-infused video for “Blood Like Cream,” which featured guest Fred Armisen.
