Portland, OR’s RED FANG has unveiled the title of their long-awaited full-length as Murder The Mountains. Murder The Mountains will see its North American release on April 12th (April 18th internationally) and is available for pre-order at this location along with a preview of the album artwork. Murder The Mountains, the follow-up to the band’s critically-acclaimed self-titled full-length, was recorded with producer Chris Funk (THE DECEMBERISTS) and mixed by Vance Powell (THE RACONTEURS).
RED FANG has recently debuted two preview tracks taken from Murder The Mountains, “Number Thirteen” and “Wires“. “Number Thirteen” can be heard via the band’s Facebook and MySpace pages as well as downloaded as part of the free Relapse Records label sampler (here). “Wires“ is also streaming now via the RED FANG MySpace.
RED FANG has confirmed two mid-February shows for Olympia and Seattle with additional U.S. dates to be announced soon. The band has also been confirmed for Hellfest 2011, the annual hard rock and metal fest held in Clisson, France in June. A full listing of RED FANG tour will be posted shortly.
RED FANG’s much-talked-about video for “Prehistoric Dog” (taken from the band’s self-titled album) will be presented as part of Oregon Music News’ 90 minute “Portland Music Videos” showing at the Reel Music Festival this Sunday at Mississippi Studios. Additional information can be found here.
